This was good but not great. The recipe calls for grated or finely chopped cabbage. I grated mine but it definitely needs to be finely chopped instead, especially if you want any kind of texture to it.

Parsley, this is wonderful! I used a combination of regular cabbage and savoy. Served this sidedish with Hey Jude's Chinese Stirfried Potatoes and KiwiDutch's Roasted Chinese Chicken. A good combo! Thanks for sharing a delicious cabbage recipe. Loved the caramelized pears! Do not overcook the cabbage!
