Filipino Pansit Palabok Recipe

Palabok Filipino Rice Noodles with EggPalabok is a Filipino Dish which Typically can be found at fastfood chains in the Philippines. It is however also a common Filipino recipe made in the Filipino kitchen. An original way of preparing this dish is described below:

Ingredients for palabok are:

  • 227 grams bihon (rice noodles)
  • Original Gravy ( Palabok ) Mix (from mama sita)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 table spoons cooking oil
  • 1 table spoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 pound minced pork
  • 2 boiled eggs (peeled and sliced)
  • 1/2 cup boiled and peeled shrimps
  • 1/2 cup crushed cracklings (chicharon)

Preparation for palabok Filipino Dish:

Dissolve the palabok mix in water. While doing this you can put the Oil in a Wok and Sautee the Garlic. When the garlic has a golden brown color you can add the Minced Pork. Stir the complete mix in the dissolved palabok mix and bring it to a boil. When it’s thick enough put the noodles in a serving plate and put the sauce over it. Finish the dish with some shrimp on top of it, cracklings, some egg and you might try some smoked mackarel as well. Palabok is commonly served with lemon.

A Question came from a blog reader how the Palabok Sauce can be made without mama sita’s mix. See below the ingredients needed to make the sauce:

  • ¼ cup atsuete seeds also known as annat seeds
  • ¾ cup water
  • Two cups shrimp juice
  • six or seven tablespoons flour
  • salt or patis and pepper

The way to prepare the palabok sauce is:

The Astuete seeds are mainly used to give a reddish/orange color to the sauce. It should be dissolved in about ¼ cup of water. After it’s dissolved it should be strained and add the remaining water with shrimp sauce into a pan. Add the flour to the mix and bring it to a cook. Finally stir until the sauce is thick and season with salt, pepper or patis to taste.
