Chamorro Sausage Pancit (Yakisoba type noodles) (submitted by Nita Lin A) This recipe was part of the many recipes "shown" to me by my late Uncle David Meno (my mother - Josephine's sister - my Auntie Frances Perez Manibusan Meno's husband).
Prep time: 45 minutes Cooking time: 30-45 minutes
PREPARATION: • Materials Needed: Large Oriental Wok With Cover, stir frying ladle, large vegetable strainer • Ingredients: ½ Pound Of “Pork For Pancit” (Ask Local Butcher For Cut) • 1 Chamorro Sausage, cut lengthwise in half (preferably “Amaral’s” brand) • 1 can Of Beer, preferably Budweiser or Bud-Lite • 6-8 cloves Of Garlic, crushed and chopped • ½ medium Onion, peeled • 3-4 Carrots, approximately 1 inch thick, peeled • ½ medium Sized Cabbage • 2 medium Bell Peppers, preferably 1 each green and red • 3-4 packages Of Fresh Pancit Noodles (Found In Refrigerated Section) • 1-1 ½ cups Of Cooling Oil • 2-3 Tbsp Of Soy Sauce Or Oyster Sauce • Salt And Pepper To Taste (Optional)
DIRECTIONS: 1. Cut pork and sausage into ¼ inch angled slices. 2. Cut onions & bell peppers into “half moon,” thin slices. Cut carrots lengthwise in half, then into thin angled slices. 3. Remove the heart (center) of the cabbage and cut into slices about 1 inch wide and 2-3 inches long. Set aside. 4. Remove pancit from packages; tear into halves into large strainer under warm water. Rinse to loosen but NOT to soften.
COOKING DIRECTIONS: 1. Heat 1 cup of oil in wok on high until it sizzles with a drop of water. 2. Fry garlic until golden brown. Add in pork and fry until hard but not burnt. Stir in sausage cook thoroughly. 3. Pour in beer and bring to a boil. Stir in Soy (or oyster sauce). After 5 minutes, taste test (be aware it’ll be oily), should be a little salty. 4. Stir in onions and carrots; cook for 3-5 minutes stirring often. Add in cabbage and cook additional 3-5 minutes. Stir in bell peppers and simmer on medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Taste test again to ensure slight saltiness remains. If not, add salt and pepper according to taste. Soy sauce may be used instead. 5. Toss in pancit by handfuls. TIP: use ladle to push meat/vegetable mix to one side to expose sauce so that pancit may absorb faster. Be sure to constantly toss from bottom to top to ensure even cooking and absorption. Remove from heat and cover. 6. Serves approximately 6-8 as a compliment to a meal, or may be eaten like an appetizer. 7. Serve with rice, main dish and salad for a complete meal.
Chicken Long Rice (submitted by Ely Sarrosa) A dish featured in village fiesta, which is of Chinese origin, and modified to the island version. There is no rice or rice noodles in Chicken Long Rice. The noodles are glass noodles, aka mung bean vermicelli.
INGREDIENTS: • One small bag flour (the tiniest bag; sorry, I forgot to see how big it was before throwing the bag in the trash!) • 1/2 stick butter (omit this if you want a harder cookie, add more butter if you want a softer cookie) • pinch salt • 1 1/2 cans coconut milk • 1 tablespoon sugar (for the dough) • 3 cups sugar (for the glaze) • 1 cup water (for glaze) • Oil for frying
DIRECTIONS: 1. Mix the flour, salt, and 1 tablespoon sugar together. Cut the butter into the flour mixture (as if you are making pie dough). Add in coconut milk and knead until a dough forms. 2. Pinch off small pieces of dough. Press the dough onto the back of a fork; slowly roll it off the fork, shaping it into the traditional guyuria shape. OR: roll out the dough and cut into small pieces. 3. Heat oil to about 350 degrees. Fry pieces of dough until golden brown; drain well on paper towels or in a colander. Note: It helps to fry the guyuria better when the rolled dough/cookie has dried a bit before putting it in the oil. Also, fry until the cookies are a deep golden brown (makes it crispier). 4. While the guyuria is frying, mix remaining sugar with 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until a sugar syrup forms. Remove syrup from the heat; allow to cool to thicken slightly. 5. When all the guyuria is fried, spread them out on a cookie sheet. Pour cooled sugar syrup onto guyuria, tossing gently to coat all the cookies. Move cookies to a large colander to drain off excess syrup. Allow glaze to harden before storing guyuria in a ziplock bag or sealable container. Page 5

Singapore Fried Noodles (submitted by Rose N Vince) Here is a recipe for Sing Chow Mai Fun or Singapore fried rice noodles; it’s one of the best Singapore fried noodle dishes but there. There is quite a bit of prep work involved, but once you have everything in place, the cooking should go quite smoothly.
INGREDIENTS: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
1/4 of a pound of dried rice Vermicelli 8 large shrimp, peeled and deveined 1 cup of Chinese bbq pork (charsiu), sliced thinly and then cut into strips 1/2 large yellow onion, sliced thinly 1 large egg, lightly beaten 3 cloves garlic, minced finely 1 slice fresh ginger, cut into thin strips 1/2 Green bell pepper, sliced 1/2 Red bell pepper, sliced 1 handful of bean sprouts 1 stalk green onions, green parts only cut into 2 inch long pieces 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp of mild yellow curry powder 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil 1/2 tsp garlic chili sauce or ground red chili pepper 1/2 tsp sugar 1 tbsp soy sauce 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce 2 tbsp vegetable oil Coarse salt Page 18
DIRECTIONS 1. Massage a small pinch of salt into the shrimp and set aside. In a large heat proof bowl, submerse the noodles in boiling water until they have softened, about 8 minutes. Then drain and set aside. 2. In a small bowl, make the sauce by mixing together the sesame oil and curry powder until you have a smooth paste. Then mix in the chili paste, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar until well combined. Set aside. 3. Heat the wok over high heat. When the wok is hot, add the oil and swirl the wok to coat the bottom half with oil. Add the shrimp and give it a few quick stirs until they have just turned pink on both sides. Then push them over to one side and pour the egg into the bottom of the wok. Sprinkle the egg with a pinch of salt. The egg will cook very quickly. Allow it to set for a few seconds, then break it up roughly with your spatula. Before the eggs have finished cooking, push them aside with the shrimp and add the onions and ginger to the wok. Give them a few quick stirs until they start to soften, but are still crisp. Then add the garlic and the sauce. 4. Mix everything together and cook until the sauce is heated through and fragrant. Add the bbq pork and the noodles and stir until everything has been mixed well together. If the noodles arenâ€™t soft enough for your taste, you can add a little bit of water to the wok. When the noodles are heated through, add salt to taste. Then add the bean sprouts and green onions and mix again until well combined. Dish out and serve immediately. Makes 2 Servings (Note: The Vermicelli noodels comes in 454 g / 16 ounce packages that contain 4 separated bundles of dried noodles; use 1 bundle) (Note: You can buy Chinese bbq pork (charsiu) or you can make your own by marinating pork with store bought Chinese bbq sauce and then roasting it on a rack in the oven at 350 F. until done.)
L & L Macaroni Salad (submitted by Michelle Dulay Zybura) HERE'S WHAT I FOUND posted in another site: For the mac salad - the trick is to cook the noodles a little longer than supposed to - so they are really soft. Also - make sure the noodles are cool before putting in the mayo. We make the L&L Drive Inn style all the time. That one is ONOLICIOUS!!
INGREDIENTS: • • • • •
Macaroni Mayo (Best Foods) Salt Pepper boiled egg (grate it super fine)
DIRECTIONS Sometimes I add celery, carrots and onions like the way Zippy's Restaurant in Oahu, Hawaii tastes. Anyway- it's good and use PLENTY mayonaise and salt to taste. Sorry no measurements - I always just make it from scratch - just to taste. Anyways....good luck.

Saimen (submitted by Helene K. Guzman)
A Ichiban has always been a contender in my house even against the greats..... I like to dress it up which I think is what makes them really good.... Island favorite is to add chunks of fried spam with sliced green onions and pepper flakes..... Or fresh shrimp cooked in the brother before adding the noodles and topped with some bean sprouts and green onions and sliced peppers... or even chicken and bokchoy.

Pad Thai (submitted by a friend of Guam Recipes) Pad Thai or Phat Thai is a dish of stirfried rice noodles with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, red chilli pepper, plus any combination of bean sprouts, shrimp, chicken, or tofu, garnished with crushed peanuts, coriander and lime, the juice of which can be added along with Thai condiments. It is usually served with spring onions and pieces of raw banana flower.
INGREDIENTS: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
8 ounces Thai Rice Noodles 1 - 1 ½ cups Raw Chicken Breast Or Thigh Meat, sliced Marinade For Chicken: 1 Tsp. Cornstarch Dissolved In 3 Tbsp. Soy Sauce 4 cloves Garlic, minced 3 cups Fresh Bean Sprouts 3 Spring (Green) Onions, sliced ½ cup Fresh Coriander/Cilantro ⅓ cup Crushed Or Roughly Chopped Peanuts (Or Other Nuts, such as cashews) ¼ cup Chicken Stock ⅛ tsp Ground White Pepper Vegetable Oil For Stir-Frying, and wedges of lime Pad Thai Sauce: ¾ Tbsp. Tamarind Paste Dissolved In ¼ Cup Warm Water (Look For Tamarind At Asian/Chinese Or Indian Food Stores) 2 Tbsp. Fish Sauce, or to taste 1-3 tsp Chili Sauce, or substitute ½ tsp. or more dried crushed chili or cayenne, to taste 3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
DIRECTIONS: 1. Bring a large pot of pot to a boil and remove from heat. Dunk in your rice noodles. Allow noodles to soak while you prepare the other ingredients. Note: you will be frying the noodles later, so you don't want to over-soften them now. Noodles are ready to be drained when they are soft enough to be eaten, but are still firm and a little "crunchy". Drain and rinse with cold water. Set it aside.
2. Make the Pad Thai Sauce by combining the sauce ingredients together in a cup. Stir well to dissolve the tamarind paste and brown sugar. Set it aside. Note: this may seem like a lot of sugar, but you need it to balance out the sourness of the tamarind - this balance is what makes Pad Thai taste so good.
3. Place chicken slices in a small bowl. Stir together the marinade and pour over chicken. Stir well and set aside.
4. Warm up a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 Tbsp. oil plus garlic and minced chili, if using. Stir-fry until fragrant (30 seconds).
5. Add chicken together with the marinade. Stir-fry 30 seconds to 1 minute. When wok/pan becomes dry, add a little chicken stock, 1-2 Tbsp. at a time, to keep the chicken frying nicely. Continue stir-frying in this way until the chicken is cooked (5-8 minutes).
6. Add the noodles, and pour the Pad Thai sauce over. Using two spatulas, wooden spoons, or other utensils, immediately stir-fry the noodles. Use a gentle "lift and turn" method (like tossing a salad) to prevent noodles from breaking. Stir-fry in this way 1-2 minutes. If you find your wok/frying pan too dry, push noodles aside and add a little more oil to the bottom (but no more broth, or the noodles will become soggy).
7. Add the bean sprouts and sprinkle over the pepper. Continue tossing 1 more minute, or until noodles are cooked. Noodles are done to perfection when they are no longer "hard" or crunchy, but chewy-sticky wonderful!
8. Taste-test for seasoning, adding more fish sauce until desired flavor is reached (I usually add at least 1 more Tbsp. fish sauce). Toss well.
9. Lift noodles onto a serving plate. Top with generous amounts of fresh coriander, spring onion, and crushed/chopped nuts. Add fresh lime wedges (lime is great squeezed overtop), and if desired, serve with Nam Prik Pao Chili Sauce (homemade recipe) on the side. ENJOY!
Twice-Cooked Beef/Pork Pancit (submitted by Michelle Dulay Zybura)
INGREDIENTS: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
3 Lbs. Beef (Flank Or Top Round) Or Pork (Any Cut) Vegetable Oil/Olive Oil 1 Packaged Dried Shitake Mushrooms 4 stalks Of Celery 1 whole Onion 4-6 Gloves Of Garlic 1 large Or Two Regular Sized Carrots ⅓ cup Soy Sauce 1 cup To 1 ½ Cup Water 1 Tbsp Vinegar 2 tsp Sugar Black Pepper ¼ cup Oyster Sauce Lemon Cut Into Wedges Green Onions (Chopped For Garnish) ⅓ each Of Red/Yellow/Green Bellpepper 2 packages Of Sakura Yellow Noodles (stocked in the refrigeration section of your grocery store) Page 29
DIRECTIONS: 1. In a medium pot, put about a cup of vegetable oil and set on med/high and while that is heating, go ahead and slice either your pork or beef into nice bite sized slices - for me the thinner, the better but if your pork has fat - make it a little thicker because it will have a nice bite once it has been cooked again in the pancit. Let the oil get fairly hot and then fry your meat and let it get really over cooked but not burned and then remove from the oil and let stand on paper towel to drain the excess fat. 2. Put your dry shitake mushroom in a container and fill with water, cover and microwave for about 8 minutes and let stand in water until ready to use. 3. Cut up and set aside your onions (sliced), garlic (pressed and chopped), carrots (sliced) and then cut again into strips makes the dish look pretty, celery (sliced), bellpeppers (sliced) - set aside. In a nice size pan or wok add just a dash of olive oil and saute your onions and garlic and celery and cook these ingredients for about five minutes on medium heat just till the onions and celery start to get translucent (clear). Add in the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, black pepper to taste, water and oyster sauce (this is your base for the entire dish). Just mix till all your ingredients combine and add meat with the drained shitake mushrooms (always do the meat and mushrooms together). Let come to a slow boil and keep the heat at medium for the entire process. This process only takes about 7-8 minutes because the meat has been cooked previously. Take a spoon with wholes in it and remove the meat and mushrooms and set aside. 4. Add all your other vebetables and because they are thin and you want crispy vegetables in your pancit, you just want to cook it so that the bell peppers start to soften (usually less than ten minutes) in fact I don't recomment any more than ten minutes at all. Remove all the vegetables from the base and set aside. 5. Now take out all your noodles and determine if you think they should be cut up a bit and if you do, simply put all the noodles in your base and grab a kitchen scissors (clean of course) and just start cutting it while it is in the pan. Then toss around the noodles in this base and cook for about 10 - 15 minutes (you want the noodles to absorb most of the base). Then take all of your ingredients, the meat and the vegetables and add all of it to your noodles and turn off heat and toss all your ingredients together.

Spaghetti with Chicken Sauce (Spaghetti El Pollo) (submitted by Dennis & Bernie Santo Tomas) Spaghetti El Pollo is a fresh alternative to traditional spaghetti normally served with meat sauce or meatballs. This dish is much lower in calories and provides a healthier choice for the family.
INGREDIENTS: • • • • • • • • •
¾ pound (12 ounces) Spaghetti A Half A Chicken, weighing 1 ⅓ pounds (26 ounces) An Onion, finely sliced 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste Form A Can Or Tube ¼ cup Olive Oil 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter A Hot Pepper Or Some Hot Paprika (To Taste But Go Easy) Salt And Pepper Boiling Water
Cut chicken up into medium sized pieces and remove all excess fat. Heat the oil in a pot, and once heated, add both the onions and chicken; cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes, or until the chicken pieces are evenly browned. Add the tomato paste, hot pepper, and enough boiling water to cover the chicken pieces.
Cover and simmer over the low to medium heat for about an hour.
Break the spaghetti into 4-inch pieces. When the chicken is done, remove the chicken pieces from the pot with a slotted spoon, and put them aside in a bowl.
Pour a pint of boiling water into the pan drippings in the pot, turn the heat up, and as soon as the water boils add the spaghetti and cook them until they are al dente, by which point almost all of the water will have been absorbed. Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the butter. Check seasoning, and turn the pasta out into a tureen. Arrange the chicken pieces over the pasta and serve at once.
This will be afine one-course meal best served with red wine and accompanied by tossed salad. Grated cheese is an option but not necessary.

FUN FACTS ABOUT PASTA History •
The Chinese are on record as having eaten pasta as early as 5,000 B.C.
Contrary to popular belief, Marco Polo did not discover pasta. The ancient Italians made pasta much like we do today. Although Marco Polo wrote about eating Chinese pasta at the court of Kubla Khan, he probably didn't introduce pasta to Italy. In fact, there's evidence suggesting the Etruscans made pasta as early as 400 B.C. The evidence lies in a bas-relief carving in a cave about 30 miles north of Rome. The carving depicts instruments for making pasta - a rolling-out table, pastry wheel and flour bin. And further proof that Marco Polo didn't "discover" pasta is found in the will of Ponzio Baestone, a Genoan soldier who requested "bariscella peina de macarone" - a small basket of macaroni. His will is dated 1279, 16 years before Marco Polo returned from China. Christopher Columbus, one of Italy's most famous pastaphiles, was born in October, National Pasta Month. Legend has it that noodles were first made by 13th century German bakers who fashioned dough into symbolic shapes, such as swords, birds and stars, which were baked and served as bread.In the 13th century, the Pope set quality standards for pasta. Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing macaroni to the United States. It seems that he fell in love with a certain dish he sampled in Naples, while serving as the U.S. Ambassador to France. In fact, he promptly ordered crates of "macaroni," along with a pasta-making machine, sent back to the States. The Spanish explorer Cortez brought tomatoes back to Europe from Mexico in 1519. Even then, almost 200 years passed before spaghetti with tomato sauce made its way into Italian kitchens.
The first American pasta factory was opened in Brooklyn, New York, in 1848, by a Frenchman named Antoine Zerega. Mr. Zerega managed the entire operation with just one horse in his basement to power the machinery. To dry his spaghetti, he placed strands of the pasta on the roof to dry in the sunshine. During the 1980s, macaroni, which was traditionally considered a "bluecollar" down-home meal, was transformed into the more upscale "pasta." As more and more people began to have fun with it and romanticize it throughout the '60s and '70s, its image began to change along with its name.

Pasta is a good source of carbohydrates. It also contains protein. Carbohydrates help fuel your body by providing energy that is released slowly over time. One cup of cooked spaghetti provides about 200 calories, 40 grams of carbohydrates, less than one gram of total fat, no cholesterol and only one gram of sodium when cooked without salt.

Cooking and Eating •
• • • •
All pasta is made by essentially the same equipment using the same technology. Also, in independent taste tests conducted by Consumer Reports, Cook's Illustrated and The Washington Post, U.S. pasta either was found superior to Italian imports or the judges were unable to discern a difference between them. To cook one billion pounds of pasta, you would need 2,021,452,000 gallons of water - enough to fill nearly 75,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. One billion pounds of pasta is about 212,595 miles of 16-ounce packages of spaghetti stacked endto-end -- enough to circle the earth's equator nearly nine times. Speaking of spaghetti...and meatballs: the Italians only ate meat a few times a month. So, when they came to America, where meat was so plentiful, they incorporated meat into their cooking more often, making meatballs an American invention. Most pasta is made using wheat products mixed with water. Other types of pasta are made using ingredients such as rice, barley, corn, and beans. Egg noodles contain egg; almost all other dry pasta shapes do not. By federal law, a noodle must contain 5.5 percent egg solids to be called a noodle. So without egg, a noodle really isn't a noodle. Cooked al dente (al-DEN-tay) literally means "to the tooth," which is how to test pasta to see if it is properly cooked. The pasta should be a bit firm, offering some resistance to the tooth, but tender. Pasta comes in many different colors. Most pasta is cream-colored, but some is made using spinach making it green, red pasta that is made using tomato, gray pasta that is made using squid ink, and some pasta is called "cellophane" because it becomes transparent when cooked. The average person in Italy eats more than 51 pounds of pasta every year. The average person in North America eats about 15-1/2 pounds of pasta per year.
Pasta is one of America’s favorite foods. In 2000, 1.3 million pounds of pasta were sold in American grocery stores. If you lined up 1.3 million pounds of 16 oz. spaghetti packages, it could circle the Earth’s equator almost nine times! Top-quality pasta is made from durum wheat. According to the North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service, about 73% of the durum wheat grown in the U.S. is grown in North Dakota. American-grown durum wheat is considered among the best in the world and the pick of the crop is earmarked for domestic use, ensuring a finished pasta product second to none in the world. Approximately 2.75 million tons of pasta is made in Italy each year, while the United States produces nearly 1.9 million tons per year There are more than 600 pasta shapes produced worldwide.
ASIAN NOODLES FACTS Noodles form an essential component in Asian cuisines. They are usually divided into groups according to their ingredients. Chinese wheat noodles are yellow or white and are usually made of wheat flour, water and salt. Sometimes eggs are added to make egg wheat noodles, available fresh or dried. The fresh noodles are cooked at a full boil for 2-4 min, taking care to separate them with a fork beforehand. They should be defrosted before cooking. Dried egg noodles are used to prepare chow mein. In Japan, they are called "somen" (thin noodles) or "udon" (thick noodles). Rice noodles are made from rice flour and water and are found most notably as very thin, brittle noodles (rice vermicelli) or wide ribbons. They are often fried or added to soup. They need to be soaked for about 20 min in cold or lukewarm water before being cooked in boiling water or in a wok. Mung bean noodles are transparent and are usually available in 3.5 oz (100 g) packets. They need to be soaked in lukewarm or hot water for about 10 min before being added to a dish, except if being added to a soup. Buckwheat and wheat noodles, called "soba" in Japan, are available fresh or dried. They are cooked at a full boil. They are often served cold with a soy sauce or added to soups. Wonton noodles are very thin sheets of pasta based on wheat, water, eggs and salt, which are stuffed with meat, fish, seafood or vegetables. They are available fresh or frozen. Buying Choose: fresh noodles that are supple and not sticky, neither too moist nor brittle; dried noodles without added artificial ingredients or preservatives. Storing At room temperature: dried noodles, indefinitely, in a dark, cool and dry place. In the fridge: fresh egg noodles, 3-4 days. In the freezer: fresh egg noodles, 1 month.
