This recipe always brings back memories of a long weekend spent alone in the home of some family friends. I was living with them temporarily and the whole family went out of state for a family emergency. I fried up some cabbage (although I’m not sure it was this recipe exactly), baked some whole wheat French bread, and feasted on them while devouring the short stories of Arthur Conan Doyle and Tolstoy. Delicious!
The recipe comes from the More-with-Less cookbook, and while I don’t know how authentically “Formosan” it is, it makes for an easy supper.
- 4 slices bacon (more or less) 😉
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 head of cabbage, thinly sliced
- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
- Brown the onion and bacon together in a skillet and drain of some of the fat.
- Stir in the cabbage and stir fry over low heat until crisp-tender.
- Add the soy sauce and toss to coat.
- Serve with rice and season with salt, pepper, and soy sauce to taste.
