Here's a great recipe for cabbage I think I've never posted before. It's really good. The original veg specified was kang-kong, but included alternate suggestion of cabbage turned out to be much better than either kang-kong or regular spinach in this recipe.
(The Burmese Kitchen, Copeland Marks and Aung Thein, 1987) Heat the oil and stir-fry the onion and garlic over moderate heat for 2 minutes; they will be golden-brown. Add shrimp powder and fry a bit, until shrimp gets a little browned. Add fish sauce and fry a bit, until dried.
Add cabbage/spinach/kang-kong/whatever and chile and stir-fry until done.
With cabbage, after the first 3 minutes or so of stir-frying, we just let it finish cooking covered and unattended.
