Porque vinagre se puede sustituir ya que no conozco este vinagre, godos los demás ingredientes, gracias quiero probar
Its hard to get a replacement for the Chinkiang vinegar but the closest one if you dont have choice is try to combine rice or wine vinegar with soy sauce, 2:1 ratio, vinegar:soy sauce.
This looks excellent — totally my kind of dish. And I do have some Chinkiang vinegar in my pantry, so I’m good to go. 🙂 Thanks!
Yes, the chilis would spice up some bland cabbage!
I tried a few cabbage stir fries, and this one’s quite a bit different! The vinegar sauce seems to really make it. Definitely one we will try, Raymund.
I don’t think I’ve ever tried a cabbage stir fry – putting this on the list for sure! I often end up with leftover cabbage and this is a great way to use it!
