    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.
