I love cabbage dishes, but I tend toward using it raw rather than cooked--this recipe is a departure from that norm. It is fast and simple and surprisingly delicious. The cabbage gets that silky quality that it gets from long time braising in just a few minutes.
- 2 teaspoons oil
- 1 small onion, sliced
In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, add the canola oil and heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and sauté, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the cabbage and cook until just starting to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and rice vinegar and stir well and cook just until cabbage is wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle with the sesame oil and red pepper flakes if using them.
