1 large garlic clove
2 green onions
2 Tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil, for frying
1 Tablespoon Chinese rice wine, dry sherry, or white wine
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1-2 teaspoons soy sauce, optional
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water

(Optional:  Slice fresh chicken breast fingers into bit size pieces, stir fry, and add to finished cabbage dish)

PREPARATION:
  1. Rinse cabbage and pat dry.  Remove the leaves and cut diagonally into 1-inch wide pieces.  Finely chop the garlic.  Rinse green onion and cut into 1-inch lengths.
  2. Heat wok or heavy skillet and add 2 Tablespoons oil.  When oil is hot, add garlic and stir-fry a few seconds until fragrant, then add cabbage.
  3. Stir-fry cabbage for 1 minute, splashing with the rice wine and stirring salt.
