Made this tonight, so delicious! For those wanting the cabbage to be truly Fiery, add 1 Tbs of Sriracha sauce.
"Fiery Cabbage" .... sadly, it was not. We added extra crushed red pepper to the meat marinade and a generous amount to the cabbage and found the cabbage to still be overwhelmingly bland. The marinade was quite tasty, though, and we'll most likely be using that part of the recipe again. :)
I had all the ingredients on hand except the cabbage. I sent hubby to the store. Our local store didn't have it, so he went to the gourmet market. Nine dollars later, I had the cabbage!! I thought "this better be some darn good cabbage". Well, it is!!! We both loved it. I will certainly make it again, but next time I won't be sending DH to the store. Thanks for something different and delicious.
I really liked this but I never tire of cabbage. It wasn't that fiery so I think I will spice it up a bit next time. Maybe use your suggestion of serrano peppers. Made for PAC spring 2010
Loved the Cabbage! Will forsure cook this part again - great flavor and the flank steak turned out wonderful,too. I used Mrs. Dash Steak Grilling Spice and my cast iron grill on top of the stove to cook it and it turned out just right.
I am a little torn about this recipe. Despite "boiling" the meat turned out tender, even after only one hour of marinating. It was definitely easy. However, it was extremely salty. I also thought there was not enough cabbage (I didn't weigh my cabbage, though, just eyeballed the amount I had left from another day.) Perhaps, though, this is because I chose not to serve rice. The cabbage was not "fiery" at all, but the meat was a bit spicy. The reason I am torn, though, is that both of my picky kids liked it and the 3 of us ate all 4 servings.
This would have been a 5 easily if the preparation on the beef had been different. Because the marinade and beef went into the pan at the same time, the meat actually steam/boiled instead of sauteed. This caused the meat to be quite tough and chewy. I think it would have been better to saute the meat first in a little oil and add the marinade to the cabbage mixture. Otherwise the taste was excellent. This was also an easy dish to prepare.
There aren't enough stars in the world to rate this recipe!!!!! Thank you for posting this!!! I didn't get the "fiery" part, but that was OK by me. I did cut back the red pepper flakes, but next time, I will do the full amount. I marinated the meat for 4 hours. I didn't have rice vinegar, or chicken broth, so I subbed white wine and it was perfect. I sometimes prefer white wine to broth anyway, it gives it a little richer taste. I am already thinking of the leftovers sitting in the fridge. HHMMMMM, I wonder if they will make it through the night. So, KPD, it goes without saying that I truly loved this recipe!!!!!!!!!
AWESOME!!!!! So, so good. I wish I could give you more stars. My husband and I LOVE this recipe!!!! So tasty!!! Thanks!
Outstanding, easy meal. My husband and I both loved this and will make it often-thanks for posting!
