In this quintessential pancit, a traditional Filipino dish, rice noodles are piled high with a tantalizing combo of pork, chicken, and shrimp. This dinner-party-perfect recipe is served with quartered hard-boiled eggs.
Place eggs in a small saucepan, and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat; let stand, covered, for 13 minutes. Drain. Cover with cold water, and let stand 2 minutes. Peel and quarter eggs. Cover, and refrigerate.
Fill a large bowl with warm water. Add noodles, and let soak for 15 minutes, stirring to separate as they soften. Drain.
Heat oil in a large, heavy stockpot over medium-high heat. Season chicken and shrimp with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook chicken, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Add shrimp to stockpot, and cook, stirring, until bright pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer shrimp to another plate.
Reduce heat to medium. Add additional oil if necessary. Add onion, carrots, and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add pork, and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in fish sauce, and cook 1 minute. Add cabbage, and toss to coat. Add noodles, chicken, and stock, and gently stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender and most of the stock has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand, partially covered, 5 minutes. Add shrimp and lemon juice, gently stirring to avoid breaking noodles.
Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with scallion. Arrange hard-boiled eggs around noodles, and serve warm or at room temperature with lemon wedges.
