I was craving for Lomi but all I had were mostly ingredients for Pancit Molo, so I decided to combine the specialties of Iloilo and Batangas into one, I must say delicious, noodle dish. Though, it's not really the authentic recipe for the Batangueno soup but it satisfied my lomi cravings. And it's very easy to make despite how heavy and complicated the resulting dish becomes. It's more of the fact that the noodles used are Pancit Molo wrappers and meat are the filling but you can also use dried flat noodles and plain ground meat.
- 3 cups sliced Pancit Molo wrappers or dried flat noodles, around 1/2 inch width or so
- 1 cup Pancit Molo filling or sauteed ground pork
- 1 cup sliced Sayote
- 1 cup sliced Carrots
- 2 cups shredded Cabbage
- 5 cups chicken stock or you can use chicken broth cubes
- 2-3 beaten Eggs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Sesame oil
