Pancit bihon guisado was one of the first recipes I posted here on Kawaling Pinoy but since I was never happy with the photos I took before, I cooked the noodle dish again this afternoon, hoping my better familiarity with my camera will result to better shots. Halfway through my stir-frying the vegetables and meat to go with the noodles, I turned off the stove and proceeded to re-heat last night’s rice in the microwave. The stir-fried cabbage, carrots, chicken, hamonado and shrimp mixture looked so crisp and inviting, I couldn’t resist eating some with rice! This ginisang repolyo is the base I use for my all stir-fried noodles but as I discovered today, it is equally scrumptious as a stand-alone vegetable dish. Try it and let me know what you think.
