Sweet and Sour Chinese Cabbage

I won't be participating in my usual Monday blog hops. I'm off to work this morning. This is a really super easy recipe that is SO good. I have tried it with different types of vinegar and the favorites so far have been red wine vinegar and balsamic. 

I managed to chop/slice and freeze two large crates of onions like I mentioned in this blog post. I regret to inform you that I did not have the requisite pearls to do my best "Julia", but the voice rocks!

Have a good week!

We planted Chinese Cabbage for our customers and the farmers' market.

It grew and grew and grew!

They are quite large.

Four of them max out a large plastic tub!

I have used them in stir frys and for making egg rolls. Our new intern gave me a great idea for fixing them, so I'll share it with you.

Sweet and Sour Chinese Cabbage

You'll need:
1 Chinese Cabbage
2 Tablespoons of butter or olive oil
2 heaping Tablespoons of red pepper jelly (peach works too)
red wine vinegar or rice vinegar

Pull the larger(tougher) leaves off the outside of the cabbage. Rinse the remaining head of cabbage and turn upside down to drain. Cut the cabbage in to ribbons.

Warm the butter or oil in a skillet over medium/ med-high. Toss in the cabbage strips and turn them with tongs just until they begin to wilt. Add the jelly to the pan and continue to turn the cabbage while the jelly melts. Remove from heat and add the vinegar (about 1/4 cup). Serve warm or cold

Thanks to our intern for this recipe!


  1. I can't cook cabbage because Hubs HATES to smell it. Does this cabbage have the same strong odor? Because, if not, I'm all over some of that!

  2. It sounds wonderful. I will look for some next time I go to the store. I love the way the recipe sounds. I have lots of pepper jelly so that would be great. Have a great day.

  3. Never heard of chinese cabbage.. The leaves look like a cross between a light romaine and butter lettuce...

  4. That sounds very much like what mom does with red cabbage, tastie
    Have a good week
    See Yea George xxx

  5. This does sound like a great blend of flavors.

  6. Would you believe I've never heard of Chinese cabbage?!? I must have been living under a rock most of my life!
