Intro: Steamed Pork Meatballs Over Napa Cabbage
This easy-to-cook bowl of yummy goodness came about one evening when I did not have the time to spend too long in the kitchen. I had some minced pork and a head of napa cabbage on hand. After some very easy marinating and steaming, the result was a lovely marriage of savoury meat and sweet veg, all covered in a delicious broth with a hint of chilli that you can drink like a soup or enjoy ladled over plain rice. Nourishing, warming, and healthy—and perfect for a chilly, rainy day. I hope you'll enjoy this as much as my husband and friends do!
