- 1 teaspoon ground pepper

Cook Pancit Luglug noodles as per package instruction. You may also soak the noodles a few minutes before boiling to fasten the process.
In a pot or large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the prawn and cook for a minute or until the color turns opaque and pink. Remove from oil and cut each piece into half, lengthwise and set aside.
In the same oil, saute the garlic and onion until limp and aromatic. Add the ground pork and season with fish sauce and pepper. Cook until no longer pink while stirring and pressing to break up the lumps.
While pork is cooking, take a bowl and dissolve the flour and achuete powder in 1 cup of water. Set aside.
Once the pork is cooked, add 4 cups of water and the shrimp cube. Bring water to a soft boil.
Gradually pour in the flour-achuete mixture into the pot while stirring continuously to avoid lumps to form. Simmer until sauce becomes thick while stirring from time to time to prevent the sauce from burning.
Divide the noodles accordingly into the serving plates. Pour a generous amount of sauce on top of the noodles. Sprinkle with crushed chicharon and shredded tinapa. Add 2 quarters of hard-boiled egg and 3 slices of prawns. Finish off with some toasted garlic and chopped green onions. Serve with calamansi.
