Cabbage is far from boring – it’s actually one of my favourite vegetables. This simple side dish recipe gets things nice and charry but also braised with a little bite. It’s one tasty way to embrace greens, plus pairs exceptionally well with a spicy meat dish.

Notes:

– Otherwise known as Chinkiang vinegar, you can find this from an Asian grocer. However, if you are unable to find it, substitute it with half balsamic and half white vinegar.
