If you’ve been a long-time follower of the blog, you probably noticed that Kawaling Pinoy had a major makeover and that recipe photos are being updated regularly. 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 the times I was revamping old content, the idea for this ginisang repolyo recipe came to me. I was cooking my pancit bihon guisado to re-shoot it when I realized the meat and veggie sahog could be a meal in itself!

It has all the makings of a delicious 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.
