Simmered Cabbage and Aburaage

This flavour-soaked cabbage dish is easy, but everyone from children to seniors will love it.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Cabbage
1/4
Aburaage
1
Dashi stock
1/2 cup (100 ml)
☆Usukuchi soy sauce
1 tablespoon
(or soy sauce and salt)
(2/3 tablespoon and a pinch)
☆Mirin
1 and 1/2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Remove the stem from the cabbage and slice it into bite-sized pieces. (See Helpful Hint #1.)
2. Remove the excess grease from the aburaage by pouring boiling water over it, then cut it into bite-sized pieces. (See Helpful Hint #2)
3. Put the dashi stock in a sauce pan and set over high heat. Once it has come to the boil, add the cabbage and the seasonings marked ☆, and let simmer for 1 minute.
4. Add the aburaage, reduce the heat to low-medium, and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover with a lid, and it's done when the cabbage becomes tender!
