Simplified Stir Fry Cabbage with Bacon

I beg for your understanding. It's gonna be a rather short recipe post today.
Maybe partly caused by my OCD personality,
I just can't fall asleep soundly if this blog entry is not finished,
So for the sake of preventing my dark eye circles from showing up in the morning,
I am on a mission to type out this "simplified" recipe before my brain stops functioning.

Stir fry cabbage with bacon-


1 small Chinese cabbage (chop into smaller pieces)
5 strips of bacon (chop into bite sizes)
1 tablespoon of dashi
Some salt
Some freshly ground black pepper


Toss the chopped bacon in the pan, turn to high heat,
Brown the bacon till the fat starts to render,
Sprinkle some salt and black pepper, give it a quick stir.

Add the chopped cabbage into the pan, toss well so that every piece is coated with bacon grease.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of dashi, mix well.
The cabbage will start to wilt after a while, taste and see if more salts are needed.

That's it, simple and delicious,
Afterall, everything tastes great with bacon.
Sometimes I'll use Chinese cooking wine, chicken stock, and garlic cloves for this dish,
But since it's the "simplified" version, 1 tablespoon of dashi will do.

    One question,
    Do you get a lot of spam comments?
    Before I never used comment modification thing but I got more spam comments now....

  3. This is really, really simple! Only five ingredients. Nice!

    I do get spam comments, but not a lot this month. Maybe it is because my blog rating is dropping according to Alexa (but not on my stats)? Usually correlates to the rating for me.
