Cabbage 'Chow Mein'

Cabbage 'Chow Mein'

Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 400 g coleslaw mix OR 2 carrots and 1/4 large cabbage
  • 450 g ground minced pork or other meat
  • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce OR 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 50 g roast peanuts or cashews
  • 1 bunch coriander cilantro or mint leaves picked


  1. Heat a large wok or frying pan on a high heat. Add a splash of oil then add the cabbage mix. Cook covered for a minute, Then stir and recover. Keep stirring and recovering every minute until the cabbage is no longer crunchy. IT will only take a few minutes total. Remove the cabbage and keep warm in a clean bowl.
  2. Return the pan to the heat and add a little more oil. Cook meat uncovered, stirring to break it up for a few minutes or until the meat is no longer pink.
  3. Quickly return the veg to the pan and add the oyster (or soy) sauce. Stir over the heat just to warm everything through. Remove from the heat. Taste and add a little salt or more sauce if needed. Generally I find the oyster sauce is all I need.
  4. Serve your delicious cabbage and meat topped with the herbs and nuts. Enjoy asap.
