Braised Chinese Cabbage With Dried Scallops II

This is another dish that we looooove ! Braised Chinese Cabbage With Dried Scallops....a dish I would normally cook for Chinese New Year for our reunion dinner but I can't wait till CNY :p When the Piggies were back for the year end holidays I took the opportunity to cook it :))) braised with lots of dried scallops and dried chinese mushrooms. It is even more tasty when a piece of dried cuttle fish is added to the pot while braising the chinese cabbage. Mmmm the aroma wafting out from the pot will make you think you are at the back portion of a chinese restaurant :)) This is one dish that you may want to add to your CNY reunion dinner menu ; )))

dried scallops and dried chinese mushrooms
are the best ingredients for braising
