had really nice teochew muay at ye shanghai recently with my group of RI friends. ^^

the cabbage was so sweet & tasty!

such a simple dish, just cheap cabbage, and such wonderful tasty comfort food.

i knew that cabbage needs to be boiled for a while to soften (but still need to be crunchy to give the bite) & make it sweet. and of course stock is paramount.

i was preparing a 15 teochew muay dishes lunch for my good RI friends, so i prepared the stock 1 day before hand using chicken & veg. a very tasty stock! 🙂

basically i added cut chilli padi, chopped garlic & fried, then added the cabbage, oyster sauce, fish sauce (or light soy sauce), then add stock, cover & reduce.

“reduce” is the key, so flavours are more intense, too much water will dilute the taste. make sure cabbage not overcooked & still retain the crunchy bite.

& my friends all loved the stewed cabbage! ^^

it was so sweet & tasty with the reduced stock & still crunchy not overcooked.
