Notes

Preparing the cabbage
Hand tearing makes it easier to remove the stem of each cabbage leaf.
Since this is a quick stir-fry, the hard, thick stems wouldn’t cook through when tender, thin leaves are ready to be dished out.
When cut by a knife, several layers of the cabbage tend to stay together. Hand tearing will make sure each piece is separated.
