Quick Stewed Napa Cabbage

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes

  • Cuisine: Japanese


  • 1 head of Napa cabbage, chop of the bottom end and then chop roughly into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons chicken broth (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • coconut oil to cook with


  1. Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to a large pot (one big enough to fit the entire cabbage).
  2. Add in the cabbage, tomatoes, and bell pepper, and cook on a medium-high heat. The cabbage will release a lot of water and will decrease in size.
  3. Add in the chicken broth after 10 minutes (optional).
  4. Cook for around 20 minutes until the cabbage is very soft and some of the water has evaporated.
  5. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Drain and serve.
