Cabbage may help protect against radiation, prevent cancer, and reduce heart disease risk according to The Health Benefits of Cabbage in MedicalNewsToday.

- 2-3 teaspoons sesame oil
- 3/4 lb bulk pork sausage
- 1 medium sweet onion cut in half and thinly sliced in half moon
- 2 large carrots cut in thin matchsticks
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger or ginger paste
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8-1/4 Chinese five spice
- 1 medium head green cabbage finely shredded
- Add sesame oil over medium heat to large heavy skillet or wok. Cook pork sausage until almost completely browned. Add onion, carrots, ginger, garlic powder and Chinese five spice (see notes) the last 2 minutes of cooking. Remove from skillet and plate.
- If necessary add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil to skillet. Add the cabbage and cook until just starting to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the sausage mixture back to the skillet. Stir and heat for 30-60 seconds. Serve immediately.
Chinese Five Spice is delicious but I suggest that you add a little at a time till your taste buds say it is just right. You can add a little soy sauce to this recipe but I find it more delicious and flavorful without it.
