Guisang Repolyo is one of my favorite dish in my childhood. It is amazing how Nostalgia plays a big role in food. It is a proven fact that people loves to eat what they used to eat when they were younger because of the attachment that they have with the food and how it reminds them about their childhood. This dish is very easy and cheap to make so anyone can do it.Let's go ahead and get started, because I am getting hungry!
GUISANG REPOLYO (sauteed cabbage)
1/2 Green Cabbage Sliced
1/2 medium onions, sliced
1 T sliced Garlic
1 5.5 oz can sardines in tomato sauce ( can be found at any local asian store)
