Learn how to make pancit palabok without jumping thru the hoops. #easy #mamasitamix
There was a time I got addicted to pancit palabok. Seriously. In college, I would skip breakfast and lunch just so I can have dinner at Jolibee for its Pancit Palabok. Err, do not judge me please. Lol.
It was one of those recipes that I’m too afraid to try, imagining hours of labor in simmering the sauce. Then I discovered how to make palabok recipe using those little packets from Mama Sita and I was set for life. (PS, this is not a featured post, I just happened to love Mama Sita because of the convenience.)
Later I discovered that going the whole nine yards in cooking this delicious pinoy food is not that hard too, but I’m stucked with Mama Sita -because easier. Haha!
Here’s the Recipe. Enjoy!
