I am of Vietnamese descent, but my language skills are dismal. This is a Vietnamese dish that we used to eat at dinner, I cannot recall the name so I made up a name for it. My kids love this dish.
- 1 small onion, peeled, cut in half and thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 head cabbage, shredded
- 3 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
- 1 -2 tablespoon canola oil
- Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat.
- Add oil to skillet and heat, do not burn.
- Add onions to hot oil and saute until well cooked but not yet browned, about 7 minutes.
- Add cabbage to skillet and saute, stirring constantly until cooked and takes on a translucent appearance. Onions should be starting to brown when cabbage is cooked. About 5 to 7 minutes.
- Stir in salt and pepper.
- Pour beaten eggs over cabbage/onion mixture and mix into vegetables, cook until eggs are cooked. About 3 minutes.
- Serve as a side dish with a main meat course or as a main dish with steamed jasmine white rice.
It is awesome to see taste has no boundaries. I have been making this in sorts for years using a variety of greens I have, sometimes using pgk. coleslaw mix. Serving with soy sauce; hoisin sauce and sometimes left over gravy. Thanks for sharing Nado2003
This was a nice surprise, as we needed a quick breakfast & I had half a head of purple cabbage to use up. Well, in the future I won't be using the purple, as the end result looks like something Dr. Seuss would dream up! :) The taste, however, was still wonderful. I think this would be a great side with some added seasonings and maybe even some peppers but today it made a quick and easy breakfast for DH & I. Thanks for posting, Nado! Made & enjoyed for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag Game.
Very different tasty, satisfying omelet. I had it for dinner with a small side salad. I added some caraway seeds to the cabbage. Lovely flavor. Will make this again
