For a vibrant green dish, add a handful of spinach leaves and some sliced Asian greens to the pan with the shredded cabbage.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1/4 cup sake
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
1 teaspoon sesame oil
500g beef, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon rice bran oil
1/4 chinese cabbage, thickly sliced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
udon noodles, cooked according to packet instructions, to serve

Method

  1. Combine the sake, soy, sugar, ginger and sesame oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the beef and toss well. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan on high. Remove the beef from the marinade and reserve the marinade.
  3. Stir-fry the beef for 4–5 minutes, then add the cabbage, reserved marinade and sesame seeds. Stir-fry for 2–3 minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt. Serve straight away with udon noodles.

Variation

  • Use minced steak in place of beef strips. Omit the marinating step and simply stir-fry the mince in all the marinade ingredients before adding cabbage and sesame seeds.

Super ingredient: Cabbage

  • Kids turn their noses up at it, but studies show that those of us who eat large helpings of cabbage (and its fellow brassicas, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts) show a reduced risk of several cancers. Their active ingredients – sulphur compounds known as indoles and isothiocyanates – activate cancer-fighting enzymes. As well, they rate tops for fibre (hence their reputation for flatulence), beta-carotene, vitamin C and folate – and have very few kilojoules.
