Stir-fried Napa Cabbage Recipe

Stir-fried Napa Cabbage Recipe – A simple and delightful dish–stir-fried napa cabbage with dried shrimp (and straw mushrooms).

Ingredients:

3 cups chopped napa cabbage
6 straw mushrooms (cut into halves) – optional
3 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
2 tablespoons dried shrimp (soaked in warm water for 10 minutes, drained and set aside)
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon cooking oil

Method:

Add in the straw mushrooms and do a quick stir, then follow by the chopped napa cabbage. Stir fry for 1 minute and then add in the oyster sauce. Stir well and dish out the napa cabbage when it’s still somewhat “crunchy” and not over-cooked. Top the stir-fried napa cabbage with the remaining half of garlic oil. Serve immediately.
