Super easy stir-fried cabbage

    15 min

    A very simple stir-fry dish. The reason for using only soya sauce for stir-frying cabbage is that it brings out the natural sweetness in the cabbage itself.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 450g shredded cabbage
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine (Shaoxing wine)

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a few seconds until it begins to brown. Stir in the cabbage until it is coated in oil; cover the wok, and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the soy sauce, and cook and stir for another minute. Increase the heat to high, and stir in the Chinese cooking wine. Cook and stir until the cabbage is tender, about 2 minutes more.

    Something else. Added a chilli.  -  25 Jan 2011


    This was great! Very tasty. I added chopped up sausages which I fried first. Also, instead of cooking wine, I just used water. And I added approx. 2 tsp of Chinese 5 Spice Powder. Served with basmati rice. Yum.  -  11 Sep 2013


    Okay, I was a little wierded out by the thought of eating straight cabbage, but this dish is amazing! I also tried it with apple cider vinegar in place of the wine, and it's great either way.  -  24 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
