Helpful Recipe Tips
Don't overcook cabbage, you are looking for cabbage to wither just a little. You want to cook them but maintain the natural crunch it has.
High heat, stir fry is made to be cooked hot and fast. Keep heat high but depending on the pan you're using look to make adjustments if the heat climbs too high and starts to burn the pan. This is why a wok is recommended but not everyone has one, including me.
