It’s really worth trying!
This simple speedy dish is perfect for busy people. All you need to do is to stir-fry the ingredients with some salted konbu. Got your apron ready?

➡  Ingredients (for four people)

  • 5-6 cabbage leaves (depending on the size, of-course)
  • One packet of shimeji mushrooms
  • 150 grams of thinly sliced pork belly (butabara)
  • 10 grams of julienned salted konbu
  • Some salt
  • Some pepper
  • Some oil

➡ Recipe

  1. Wash the cabbage and cut off the stalk. Cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Cut the pork belly into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Put some oil in the frying pan and stir-fry the pork.
  4. Add the shimeji mushrooms and the cabbage to the frying pan and sir-fry them. Add the salted konbu, sprinkle some pepper and keep stir-frying.
  5. Adjust the taste by adding more salt.

💡 Tips

  1. If you have a non-stick frying pan, you don’t have to use oil. Pork fat does the same job!
  2. You can use shiitake or eringi mushrooms instead of shimeji mushrooms. Even if you don’t have any mushrooms, no worries!
