Serves 4 (serving size: 1/2 cup)

We love the Chinese takeout feel of this speedy side, with meaty shiitakes, soy sauce, sesame, and crisp-tender stir-fried cabbage.

How to Make It

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil; swirl to coat. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 4 minutes or until browned. Add cabbage; cook 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, soy sauce, and pepper; toss. Top with cilantro and sesame seeds.

Just ok

This works well as a side dish to Asian-inspired main dishes but is somewhat lacking in flavor.  I served it next to CL's Sesame-Soy Meatballs along with steamed jasmine rice and it was fine.  But I probably won't make again.

Cabbage tends to be so boring when I sauté it in olive oil, so this recipe was a great way to mix it up!  Will make this again.

Missing something...

The combination of mushrooms, sesame oil and sesame seeds results in "savory" being the over dominant flavor. The dish needs something else to create better balance.
