When I was still in the Philippines, I get to watch how my aunt cooks this Pinoy recipe. And now that I have shown it here, I hope that she won't find out because she is going to choke me for sure. This is one of her specialty recipes. She cooks this really well that none of my other aunts can cook this as good as her. I was just fortunate that I got to watch how she cooks this because every time she gets bulk order, I was there to help her. This pancit canton is really good that when I brought this to work, I had my co-workers tried it, and they loved it! I brought it to work because sometimes Nunnie would tell me that the food is good and sometimes I just don't know if he is just trying to please me or if it's really good. Pancit canton is really not that hard to make. It is actually easy if you have all the ingredients. The only hard part in cooking this recipe is the preparation of the ingredients. But if you can get somebody to help you chop, then you will find it a lot easier. The most important step in cooking this pancit canton is setting aside the vegetable and meat mixture and cooking the noodles separately. Because by doing this, the noodles get cooked pretty well and at the same time, the vegetables won't get soggy and overcooked. I want my vegetables a little crispy and crunchy that is why I do it this way. I really do encourage everyone to try this because for me this is a must and I can guarantee you, you won't get disappointed.
