Pancit Sotanghon is a delicious noodle dish. This recipe features a combination of ingredients that make the entire dish look and taste special. Pancit Sotanghon is at its best when lemon or calamansi is squeezed on top before eating.
Preparing pancit sotanghon is not complicated. Although it seems that there is a lot going on, it will be better to group your ingredients when preparing this dish so that you can save time and avoid confusion. For example, I had the following groups for this recipe: vegetables, meat, and noodles.
I started by soaking the noodles in water to make it soft. It will be ready as soon as I am done with the other ingredients. The next thing that I did was to cook the vegetables using a method called blanching. To blanch means to quickly boil the vegetables in water until done. The veggies are removed from the hot water and transferred to a in a bowl with ice water. This stops the cooking process and helps the vegetable maintain its texture and color. It is the reason why this pancit sotanghon looks good.
The meat for this pancit sotanghon recipe was prepared by sautéing with garlic and onion. The chicken, pork, and Chinese sausage were quickly sautéed before the seasonings were added. Once ready, all I did was to put-in the noodles, toss, and add the vegetables.
