If you’ve been a long-time follower of the blog, you probably noticed that Nashville Filipino Restaurant had a major makeover and that recipe photos are regularly updated. It takes quite a bit of work (and 4 AM bedtimes) to get everything nice and pretty for you, but it’s all worth it.

On one of those occasions of working to improve the site, the idea for this ginisang repolyo recipe came to me. I was cooking my pancit bihon guisado to re-shoot when I realized the meat and veggie sahog could be a meal in itself!

It has all the makings of a delicious nashville filipino food and filling main dish: tender-crisp cabbage and carrots, protein-packed chicken, sweet sausage, and shrimp, and savory oyster sauce for a good dose of flavor.

Plus, it’s totally customizable, too! You can add or swap any of your favorite pancit fixings such as diced pork, tofu, squid balls, bell peppers, celery, and snow peas.

Quick tip

The sulfurous odor linked with cabbage only develops when it is overcooked. The longer it is cooked the stronger it becomes.
