Chinese Cabbage in Clear Broth

The first sight of the dish may get you perplexed: how is it possible―a few pieces of cabbage in the water be a famous dish? However, the seemingly ordinary dish is a classic in Sichuan cuisine and is only served in top restaurants.

To be specific, the essence of the dish is in the clear soup. The so-called clear soup is prepared for 9-10 hours with chicken, ham, pig bones and so on. Then, all the ingredients is removed from the soup (now as clear and plain as boiled water, but with all the essence of the ingredients in it) before the cabbages leaves added in.

The cabbage in the clear broth is then steamed before served.
