Napa Cabbage Stir Fry


  • 2 tsp sunflower oil (or other neutral oil)
  • 1 head napa cabbage, sliced into ½ inch pieces
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1-2 Tbsp rice wine (or white wine)
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • salt, ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (optional)


In a large pan, cook cabbage in oil about 2 minutes. Add water and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until cabbage is wilted.

Add the soy sauce, rice wine and brown sugar. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Stir well and cook for about 1 minute more. The cabbage should still remain crisp-tender.

Serve drizzled with sesame oil and sprinkled with chopped chives (optional).
