Pancit Molo Recipe

Pancit Molo Recipe

Have you ever wonder why is it quite cold in the Philippines? It is because of the Siberian wind. From December to February, the Siberia snow melts and cools down the wind rapidly. The wind will then travel to America, Europe then Asia, which includes Philippines.

Apparently, this year sets a very cold weather in this country. Why? This is because the wind coming from Siberia goes directly to Asia. Not just that, the wind passing through the Philippines first passed through China and currently, Chinese men are experiencing winter.

Now you know!

Speaking of cold climates, one thing that eases our shaking is a great hot soup. Pancit Molo is one best example. This can be easily described as Siomai in a soup.

Ingredients for molo (siomai):

  •  1 pack molo wrapper
  • 1/2 kilo ground pork
  • 1/4 kilo shrimp – chopped
  • 1 medium singkamas – peeled and chopped finely
  • 1 medium carrot – peeled and chopped finely
  • 1 bundle spring onion – chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic – finely minced
  • 2 medium onion – finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for Soup:

  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 medium onion – chopped
  • 1 pack sweet ham – chopped
  • 1/4 chicken ribs
  • 6 cups chicken broth (boil 1/2 chicken breast)
  • 5 cups water
  • Spring onion for ganish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Make the Siomai:

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the molo.
  2. Wrap the mixture in a piece of molo. Make sure that the entire mixture is covered.
  3. Set aside.

Cook the Pancit Molo

  1. In a deep pan saute garlic and onion.
  2. Add the chicken ribs and let it simmer.
  3. Add two cups of water and boil for 1 minute.
  4. Add chicken broth and let it boil.
  5. Add the siomai and boil for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the sweet ham and boil for a minute.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Garnish with spring onion.

For this recipe you can add all the siomai or not. I recommend not to add all. Just steam the rest.
