Taiwanese Braised Cabbage with Shrimp, Chilies, and Shiitake Mushrooms is a dish of cabbage braised with shrimps, chillies and dried shiitake mushrooms.
If you think vegetables are boring then you haven’t tried this dish yet, it’s one of the tastiest vegetable dishes you will ever try, just imagine dried chillies, shrimps, powdered dried shrimps and dried shiitake mushrooms, this flavour combination is very potent which livens up the usual boring cabbage. Great as a side dish with rice and other meat dishes, we paired it with dried adobo and it felt like it’s a match made in heaven.
Usually big flat head cabbage is used on this dish, other variants can also be used if you cannot find big flat head. So, varieties like Cannonball, Napa or Savoy cabbage can be used. Though I heavily suggest flat head due to its mild tasting, very sweet, tender texture and short core.
