Braised Napa cabbage with Egg floss 蛋酥滷白菜~~欢喜过马年

 The braised Napa cabbage is a popular and common dish in Taiwan, they called it as 滷白菜.
The other day I saw this dish in a Taiwan cook show (by Taiwan's celebrity chef  阿基師), and I know this dish must be good, because use Napa cabbage to braise it, sure taste very refreshing sweet.

This egg floss is similar like our usual egg floss butter prawns, crispy and full of egg aroma. One tip shared by chef is add a bit of cooking oil into the egg, so it will not retain oil when deep frying.

I added one additional item which is not in the original recipe, Jinhua ham 金華火腿( I got this at the Non-Halal section at Tesco).
As I know it will give extra flavour to this dish.

Let see the ingredients used

This dish can be perfectly serve during CNY..Presentable and very delicious!

Hi Sonia, this looks really good. My mum used to make something similar, but just using the napa cabbage and then top with some shredded egg.

Where do I find 金华火腿 in Ipoh?

summicron said...

Oooh nvm, found it at Tesco. Exactly like yours in the photo.

I read elsewhere 金华火腿 need to be steamed in water with a slice of ginger, about 45mins to 1 hours, before use. Do you prepare it this way?
