Okay, so that’s a fancy name! Hahaha.. In reality, it’s the copy cat of Lucky Me’s Pancit Canton – well sort of! Hahaha.. I found this recipe from the Let’s Eat Cookbook of ICA Batch 92′. I tried it and it was simple to make and the kids loved it! I just added the mushrooms because I had dried shitake mushrooms that I wanted to cook. Hihi..
It’s quite simple to make and you can tweak the taste to your liking. It’s quite similar to the taste of the instant Lucky Me pancit canton in original, but this one is not instant! Hihi.. So here goes!
1 pack of Dried Noodles (You can use any Asian noodles, I had a pack of Guan Miao – so that’s that I used, cook it according to package directions)
1/4 cup Cooking Oil
5 Tablespoons Lee Kum Kee Premium Soy Sauce
2-3 Tables spoons White Sugar
3/4 cup Chopped Green Onions (aka Scallions)
3 dried Shitake Mushrooms (soak in hot water, then slice as you please)
Heat oil in pan and add green onions and saute
Once fragrant and a bit browned (make sure it’s not burned ha!) add the soy sauce and slowly add the sugar
Cook it until it bubbles
Add the noodles and mix thoroughly
Do taste it to check if you need to add more sugar
Now, add the mushrooms and saute until you’re satisfied (hahaha!)
Voila! Plate it well.
You may omit the mushrooms. I just added it because I had dried ones I wanted to use.
Please do tweak this recipe to your taste – I felt that I needed to add more sugar to balance the flavor.
The original recipe asked for light and dark soy sauce. I feel that most households don’t have both, so I just used Lee Kum Kee Premium soy sauce.
Please do let me know what you think of this recipe.
