This is a very simple dish and, after prepping your ingredients, it takes about 3 minutes to make. No step takes longer than two minutes and most take about 30 seconds. There are very few ingredients: Napa cabbage, garlic, salt and pepper, and an egg. An egg? Yes, an egg. At the end of the stir fry, you toss in an egg and stir the whole thing for about 30 seconds.
This is a very simple side dish to accompany a main course and some rice. We served it with mahogany chicken and rice. I am so glad to be cooking along with Wok Wednesdays, because this is something I never would have tried on my own… the flavor is difficult to describe, I guess sort of earthy. It is really tasty. Napa cabbage is becoming one of my new favorite ingredients.
