Hot and Sour Cabbage Recipe

Ingredients :

700 g White cabbage

10 Szechwan peppercorns

5 small Dried red chili peppers

3 tablespoons Oil

2 tablespoons Soy sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons Vinegar

1 1/2 tablespoons Sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons Salt

1 teaspoon Sesame seed oil

Method :

Choose a round, pale green cabbage with a firm heart. Never use loose leafed cabbage. Wash in cold water and cut the leaves into small pieces the size of a matchbox. Cut the chilies into small bits. Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and salt to make the sauce. Heat the oil in a preheated wok until it starts to smoke. Add the peppercorns and the red chilies and a few seconds later the cabbage. Stir for about 1 1/2 minutes until it starts to go limp. Pour in the prepared sauce and continue stirring for a short while to allow the sauce to blend in. Add the sesame seed oil just before serving. This dish is delicious both hot and cold.
