Savory Pork in Crispy Noodles

This recipe sounds like an oriental dish but we Pinoy also like Asian cuisine and this might be a good addition to your menu. Unlike the favorite pancit canton or pancit bihon, the difference is, the noodles fried to make it crunchy and the sauce and other ingredients are cooked separately. When ready to serve, the fried noodles are placed in a platter like a nest, then poured with the sauce containing the meat and vegetables. Try it, I’m sure you are going to like it.
