Original Recipe from Cookpad
Serves 2 (In my picture, I basically doubled everything for 4 people)


Bacon 250 g
Cabbage 1/2
Salt 1/3 teaspoon
Pepper 1/2 teaspoon
Soup stock cube 1/2 cube
**Water 50 ml
**Cooking sake 70 ml


  1. Cut the cabbage half in half again and take out the core.
  2. Peel off the leaves one by one and flatten out out. Don’t worry about the edges getting ripped.
  3. Wash the leaves and drain.
  4. Cut the bacon into 3 pieces.
  5. Use a deep frying pan or a pot. Layer the ingredients in this order: 1. cabbage, 2. bacon (about 2 slices per layer), 3. pepper. Repeat the layers.
  6. Finish off with a layer of cabbage.
  7. Chop up the soup stock cube.
  8. Add the salt, chopped up soup stock cube, and the ** ingredients.
  9. Put on a lid and cook over medium heat for 3 minute. After the liquid comes to a boil, cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
  10. Transfer to a serving plate. (It will be more colorful with some parsley sprinkled on top. I didn’t add any though.)

I very much love this dish and have cooked it quite a few times as we know how important it is to always have a vegetable dish during meals.  It’s easy and fast to make.  I don’t eat bacon, but the flavor it gives to the cabbage is amazing.  It gives the whole dish a strong bold taste.  You don’t really have to use the exact measurements after giving this recipe a try.  And also you can minus the stock cube if you don’t have any, and just lightly salt your dish.
