Napa cabbage and pork

Yet again, a classic Chinese dish. Just a tip, unless you are making kimchi, napa cabbage tastes awful without meat. Always add in a little bit of meat if you are cooking with it, and please don’t ever cook it with oyster sauce. I tried that once and ended up with fishy water, literally! The napa has a high water content so if you want to reduce this then you can salt it just like you would an eggplant to draw out some of that moisture.
