"This is a nice basic Stir-Fry that opens the door for lots of possibilities. I added several extra ingredients which really bumped up the cabbage quite a bit. Its clean tasting and super easy to make.

"This was surprisingly good. I'm not a huge cabbage fan, but this is really good. It was so fast to prepare and delicious with the pork chops I served for dinner! Will make again."

"My family enjoyed this side dish. We thought next time we might add noodles and serve as a meal rather than a side dish. Very good and very easy to make."
