Hydrating Rice Noodles: Bring water to a boil and then turn off the heat. Submerge the rice noodles in the hot water for one minute until the noodles become bendable. Immediately remove, rinse in cold water and hold in a colander. The noodles should become a little stiff from the cold water. They will become soft again once heat is applied in the stir-fry.

Pancit Style Stir-Fry: Heat oil until slightly smoking, add pork until surface is brown, then add onions, cabbage and carrots and cook for two minutes or until the surface is slightly brown. Deglaze the surface of the pan with cooking wine. Once liquid evaporates, add rice noodles and water and stir together until noodles become pliable. Add seasonings – soy sauce, fish sauce. Once the liquid disappears, finish with calamansi juice. Garnish with green onion and serve.
