Pancit Udon is my own version of Pancit using udon noodles. This Pancit Udon recipe is very easy to follow and it taste really good too. If you want a different noodle other than canton, bihon, sotanghon, or palabok, this Pancit Udon Recipe is worth your time.
Unlike the other pancit recipes that we featured, the noodles or udon in this recipe needs to be boiled first. I simply do this by boiling water in a deep cooking pot and add the udon noodles once the water starts to boil. Boiling the udon for 10 to 12 minutes is about right, but it is always best to check the noodles to ensure that it is not soggy nor undercooked. Once the noodles are done, I drain the liquid and pour olive oil all over the noodles and make sure the all noodles are coated with oil. This prevents the noodles from sticking with each other.
If the noodles are ready, it time to complete the pancit – and this is really a quick and easy process. The recipe below will tell you how to quickly and easily cook pancit udon.
