Ginger Braised Red Cabbage

By far, one of the simplest dishes I make yet still impressive, delicious, and satisfying.

RECIPE: Ginger Braised Cabbage

1 tsp sesame oil (or cooking oil)
1" chunk fresh ginger, minced
1/2 head of red cabbage, sliced thinly
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar (or white wine vinegar)

> in a skillet over medium heat, sauté the ginger in the sesame oil
> when the ginger starts browning, add the cabbage, vinegar, and about 1/2 a cup of water
> cover with a lid and let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the cabbage is tender

Serve with broiled fish and rice. Garnish with basil and sesame seeds. I have also used 3 cloves of garlic in place of the ginger or with the ginger with raging success.


  1. I love the cabbage!

  2. Me too!! I can hardly wait to make it again in the next few days. Surprisingly delicious, simple, quick, AND cheap!
