Can you make fried cabbage with chicken or meat?

Absolutely! Using chicken, pork, or beef can help make fried cabbage more hearty but making it totally meatless will be just as good! Here is a Sauteed Cabbage recipe with chicken from Cooktoria.

How do you cook cabbage?

Cabbage can be prepped or cooked in many different ways. Wilting cabbage is a great way to soften the cabbage leaves (a popular technique in cabbage roll making.) Baking, frying, braising or sauteeing are also known as some ways to cook cabbage. Cabbage does not always need to be cooked in order to be eaten but how you prepare your cabbage can vary in taste and texture so choose accordingly to what you are trying to achieve. A caramelized texture in cabbage is best if prepared by sautéing or frying.

What is a good way to shred or julienne cabbage?

Using the side of a box grater, knife or a Japenese mandoline are ways to shred cabbage. It is best to cut the cabbage in half or even fourths to get a good grip when shredding. This is the exact mandoline that I own and it comes with three interchangable blades, making a great tool for scalloped potatoes, carrot salad and so much more. I’ve owned mine for so many years and its very handy.
