Whether you boil, stuff or braise it, cabbage is a canvas. We chew into eternity as we become Cabbage Heads and discover that this beloved of brassicas will one day save us all. Get ready to ooh and ahh.
Vegetable or peanut oil
This is more of a method than a recipe. Cut green cabbage into rough one-inch squares. (A quarter-head of cabbage makes a good side dish for two people.) Prepare a teaspoon or two of minced ginger. Pour one tablespoon each of soy sauce and rice wine into a small bowl.
Heat a wok or skillet over high heat. Add the oil and heat until you see a wisp of smoke. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until well browned and a bit charred in places, reducing the heat slightly if necessary. Add the ginger and stir to combine. Drizzle in the soy sauce mixture, reserving a little and tasting for a good level of salt. Cook until the soy sauce and rice wine has evaporated. Stir in 1 teaspoon rice wine and serve
