Too lazy to prepare 1 main dish 2 side dish and a soup for tonight's dinner. After all, only three of us are eating at home. I wanted to cook something which is simple and takes little time for preparation. So I decided to cook this teochew/hokkien-styled cabbage rice which is also known as "guo lay cai beng" , if I am not wrong.
