You many wonder why it should be hand tearing? Not cutting? Hand shredding can help to remove the tough part of the cabbage and keep the natural grains of the cabbage leaves.

Cook’s Note

  1. Heat your wok or pan at first before adding the oil. Since we are doing a quick frying, we need enough hot kept by the wok. Take full usage of the wok heating by moving the cabbage around the wok.
  2. The cabbage should be completely drain before frying. Only water on the leaves can spoil the dish by turning quick frying process into steaming or poaching.

  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 inch root ginger, minced
  • 3 to 6 dried chili peppers
  • ½ teaspoon Sichuan peppercorn seeds

  • ½ tablespoon black vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable cooking oil


Hand tear the cabbage, keep the tender green leaves only. Discard the hard white pate. Wash gently and drain completely. This is the key step to guarantee the success of the dish.
