Stir-Fried Ginger Pork and Cabbage

I love cabbage because it is cheap and healthy!

This recipe is the absolute best use of cabbage. The cabbage blends together well with the pork and adds volume to the dish! A hint of ginger makes it more healthy and appetizing.

It goes perfect with white rice :D

  1. Ochi,

    Do you always mix foods with sake?I never drink sake does it taste?Like a wine??

    Can i use other beer or wine for this dish??

    This dish so Chinese to me..because Chinese cook dishes in this way too.

  2. Hi jose,

    Sake is made of rice, and sake for cooking tastes almost nothing.

    You know 紹興酒, right? It works almost the same as that. Removes the meat of its smell and brings up the flavor. As for this dish, you may substitute it with 紹興酒 or white wine but not beer. hehe

  3. Ochi,

    O..i knew.Thanks for the info...I learnt a lots.

    I guess I knew beer is for drinking,not cooking.Haha

  4. Hi jose,

    I have to learn more how to use 紹興酒! hehe

  5. Ginger pork is one of my favorite food in japan.but,with cabbage...i think best balance.
