In the Kitchen will be the category where I will post some of the recipes I cook for my family. I promise you these are super-duper easy recipes because I’m really not an expert in the kitchen plus the fact that I don’t want recipes with so many steps/how-tos. Just 4-6 instructions, anything more than that, I skip the page of my recipe book and look for simpler recipes. So newbies in the kitchen, I hope you’ll try my recipes or suggestions and let’s share kitchen secrets!
If I can’t think of something to cook or we got tired of eating meat, I always cook Ginisang Repolyo. It’s the easiest (and cheapest too!) vegetable recipe that one can cook. You may throw in whatever meat you like, I use ground pork or beef or bits of chicken breast, whatever’s available in the freezer.
Ginisang Repolyo or Sauteed Cabbage with Chicken recipe
1 small cabbage, shredded
1 small carrot, cut into strips
chicken fillet, cut into small pieces (or 1/4 ground pork/beef)
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
How to cook:
- Saute garlic and onions in oil.
- Add chicken and 1 or 2 tablespoons oyster sauce. Let it cook for a few minutes.
- Add just a small amount of water, just enough to coat the chicken (about 1/4 cup). Bring to a boil.
- Add carrots in the boiling water. Cover and wait for the carrots to cook.
- Season the broth with salt and pepper.
- Add in the shredded cabbage. Toss until cabbage is cooked. Taste the broth again if it needs salt/pepper.
- After the cabbage is cooked, add 1 or 2 slices of butter.
The butter gives a “linamnam” factor and we always add it in any vegetable dish just for added sweetness.
