I recently cut this out of the NYTimes food section, made it last night and it turned out great. BF really liked it too. I omitted the fish sauce, but if you want to add it go ahead. Also I reduced the peanut oil from 4 tablespoons to 2 tablespoons. You could probably get away with less than that. A 14 ounce bag of cole slaw mix can be substituted for the 6 cups cabbage and 1 large carrot. I served this with rice.
