Indonesian Style Stir-Fried Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

This makes a good vegetable dish to serve with grilled steak, chops or a mixed grill as well as with a satay. Even those who don't like cabbage may well enjoy this.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 12 cabbage, sliced and chopped (more to your taste)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red chili pepper, seeded and then cut into very fline slices
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat oil in the frying pan, then add the onion, chilli and garlic.
  2. Cook until soft.
  3. Break chicken stock cube into the pan and stir to spread throughout the mixture.
  4. Add all of the chopped cabbage and salt and pepper, then stir to coat the mixture.
  5. Place lid on the pan and cook over a low heat for a further 10-15 minutes (the cabbage should be soft by this time).

Very good. Got home from work late and didn't feel like a big production. This fit the bill.

To make it more attractive to my kids, I added some shrimps which gave it a little colour. Also, Indonesians use a lot of shallots, so I used that instead of the onions for a more authentic and fragrant taste. Very tasty recipe. Thank you for posting.

Good stuff!!! Prefect mount of heat! With the egg that helps cool it! I did use olve oil but peanut would have been better along with a garnish of chopped peanuts! Thanks for a healthy spicy side.
