This is my boyfriend's new "favourite" way to have cooked cabbage. I followed the recipe except I added an extra garlic clove and substituted about 1 tablespoon of melted butter in place of the oil. Next time I will just try some cooking spray to cut the fat a little. Thanks for posting something I have been told that I should be making often!

We really liked this stir fry. I think I ended up halving the oil and doubling the garlic and ginger. I had to make some last minute substitutions for part of the cabbage though, since I didn't have what I thought I did. So I added a red pepper and some green onions. Actually, it worked out well, and also gave it a beautiful color. Thanks Wendy, love your recipes, as usual.

Yummy. I used vincotto in place of balsamic vinegar (similar in flavour but richer, somehow), but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks for posting.
