Hot and Sour Cabbage

This Month's Film: Farewell My Concubine
Cuisine: Chinese

This easy dish made a nice complement to my Fiery Ginger Fish. It's a quick and simple stir-fry of finely shredded cabbage seasoned with ginger, rice vinegar, rice wine, soy sauce, dried chili flakes, and Szechuan peppercorns. It's important that the cooking time be kept to a minimum to maintain the texture of the cabbage. Once done, it makes a perfect plate liner for the main course.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month along with the 'Farewell My Concubine' film review.
