HOW TO COOK easy Palabok Recipe with Tinapa

If you’re in a hurry, soak the Super Q Special Palabok in water overnight or cook it directly in boiling water for 8- 10 minutes. Set aside after draining. Boil water, add 6 eggs, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Place the hard-boiled eggs in a cold bath or ice-cold water to easily remove the shell. Set aside. Pour 1/4 cup cooking oil into a hot pan. When the oil is hot enough, saute’ the chopped garlic, followed by the chopped onion. Sauté the ground pork for 5 to 8 minutes. Sauté the tinapa flakes for 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the shrimp broth cubes and atsuete oil with the meat. Put 8 1/2 cups of water in a bowl and dissolve 4 packs of Mama Sita’s Palabok Mix. Pour it over the meat while constantly stirring the sauce. Bring the water to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the palabok noodles in the sauce. To evenly coat the noodles with the sauce, use two spatulas. Toss in half of the crushed chicharron and spring onions. Simply top with crushed chicharron, sliced eggs, shrimps and spring onions. It’s time to serve.

What size of shrimp and crabs to use?

We use medium  sized shrimp. Though we could use larger size of shrimp, it is more difficult to toss and longer to cook. However, you can also used smaller size of shrimp also if that is convenient for you.

What can we use if we don't have Annatto Seed?

If you can’t find it, combining equal parts sweet paprika and turmeric as a one-to-one substitute for ground annatto is your best bet. Turmeric adds a yellow-orange color to your dish as well as a nutty, earthy flavor, while paprika adds a red color and spicy sweetness.
