Hot and Sour Stir-Fried Cabbage (Vegetables)

Hot and Sour Stir-Fried Cabbage (Vegetables)

Hot and sour cabbage is a classic stir-fry that’s ready in minutes. Napa cabbage is cooked hot and fast with aromatics until tender-crisp and lightly charred. Sauced with a mixture of soy, vinegar and just a touch of sugar, the flavors are spicy, salty and tangy. Chinese black vinegar is made with rice and has a lightly smoky, subtly malty flavor. If not available, 1 tablespoon each of unseasoned rice vinegar and balsamic vinegar is a reasonably good substitute. For extra heat, drizzle with chili oil before serving.

Tip

Don’t forget to turn the heat to high before adding the cabbage. The vegetables should char hot and fast so they don’t leach moisture that would dilute the flavors and make the stir-fry soggy. Also, be sure to stir the soy mixture before adding it to the skillet, as the cornstarch will settle to the bottom upon standing.
