Delicious; I've made it twice so far and my family loves it.  I like to follow the suggestion uner "Notes" and grate a carrot in with the cabbage for color.  You can also snip green onions diagonally with a pair of scissors over the top when it's done for a little fresh burst of flavor.  But even plain it's a good reliable dish that tastes appealing. I like to use fresh garlic and ginger in my cooking, but for people who don't normally stock those items in their pantry, the dried spices are quite respectable.

Tried it for the first time tonight. It turned out great. Easy, and quick. I think I will add cashews next time.
