On a Chinese dinner table, there are always a few vegetable dishes along with the main. A quick stir fry is one of the best ways to create a healthy and delicious side dish for dinner.

This 4-ingredient fried cabbage is a family recipe. My mom cooks it all the time because it requires minimum preparation and chopping but it yields a very flavorful dish. She kept telling me, right before I moved to the US, that this is the kind of recipe I need to learn. And putting green vegetables on the dinner table is one of the most important tasks, more important than cooking with meat!

So here is it, the 4-ingredient fried cabbage that only requires 3 minutes to prepare and 5 minutes to cook.

Secret ingredients for the best fried cabbage

The secret ingredients of making addictive fried cabbage are Sichuan peppercorns and dried chili peppers.

Sichuan peppercorns

Sichuan peppercorn (花椒, Huā Jiāo) is also known as Szechuan pepper, a key ingredient in Sichuan cuisine. Sichuan peppercorn has a pungent aroma, slightly lemony overtones, and numbing properties. If you bite into one of these small peppercorns, you’ll immediately feel the tongue-tingling, buzzing, party-in-your-mouth sensation otherwise known as ‘málà’ – numbing spice. In Northern Chinese cooking, we usually use the ingredients to infuse oil or sauces, to add extra savory aroma to a dish.

Chinese dried chili peppers

Not only is it a key ingredient in authentic Sichuan food, it’s commonly used in braising and stir-frying to infuse fragrance into the oil. There are a few types of commonly used Chinese chili peppers and I highly recommend to at least have Facing Heaven Chili (medium-hot and very fragrant) in your pantry.

Facing Heaven Chili

Use Sichuan peppercorns and dried chili pepper to infuse the hot oil with smokiness and adds a numbing spicy hint to the sweet fried cabbage. The cabbage will be seared with high heat and lightly charred, tender and meaty in texture without losing its crunchiness. Finish up with just a drizzle of soy sauce, you’d be surprised how flavorful the result is. I can finish eating half a head of cabbage in 2 minutes.

Cooking process

  • Cut the cabbage to bite-size pieces. (See the video below my recipe to learn how I cut the cabbage)
  • Fry the Sichuan peppercorns in the hot oil until turning dark.
  • Scoop out the Sichuan peppercorns.
  • Add the dried chili pepper and cabbage. Cook until turning tender but still crunchy.
  • Drizzle with soy sauce.

That’s it! Use this quick and easy fried cabbage recipe to add nutrition to your dinner table.
