While most recipes will have all ingredients just thrown in the pan, this pancit guisado recipe involves steps, making each of the ingredient's flavors very clean and apparent.


You will need:

1/2 kilo pork rounds (kasim)

8 to 10 cups water

1 tablespoon salt

1 bay leaf

1/2 kilo glass noodles (sotanghon)

5 large pieces garlic, mashed

1 large white onion, sliced (divided into two)

2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup soy sauce

250 grams sweet ham slices, cut into strips

1 large carrot, peeled and sliced into  thin strips

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 kilo cabbage (approximately half a cabbage head), sliced into thin strips

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon MSG (vetsin)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

calamansi slices for garnish

Here's how:
