Easy to make, this side dish adds a colorful green vegetable to a meal and is a bit spicy and tangy. My DH loves it. If you choose to substitute fresh garlic and/or gingerroot, cook them in the hot oil before adding the cabbage. This side dish goes well with most Asian-spiced meats and poulty. Fried garlic (in jars) can be found at most Asian grocers, and imparts a bit of a roasted flavor to this dish.
