– drain water from tofu (i left it in the fridge overnight for this purpose), then crush. stir ground meat with chopsticks in one direction till it turns into a paste. add in seasoning to all of the ingredients from (1). mix well

– divide meat paste into 5 portions, and shape into balls. fry the meat balls till it turns golden brown. remove and allow to drain. set aside

– wash cabbage thoroughly and cut into big chunks. lay the “riper” portions of the cabbage on the bottom of a big pot and place the fried meat balls on top of the cabbage. then place the “younger” portions of cabbage on top of the meat balls

– pour in all ingredients (2) into the pot (except salt), and stew meat balls and cabbage for 1 hour. finally, add in salt according to personal preference and serve hot

    i am making a trip there in Aug and was wondering if i should schedule some time there

      Hi Huilin, no it\’s not worth visiting. Maybe a better way of saying, is that you will not find any shops specifically selling baking supplies. Bare supplies are found only in supermarkets. In china, the way to go is via taobao. One of my pal bloggers asked the same question as you and she ended up taobao-ing, and then having the supplier deliver to her hotel during her stay. Try out the TB route 🙂
