Chinese Spicy and Sour Stir-Fried Cabbage With Bacon

Hunanese food is famous for its fiery, chili-spiked dishes, and this quick and easy one with hand-torn cabbage, fresh red chilies, garlic, scallions, and bacon, is no exception. In fact, by Hunan standards, this dish is fairly tame. Slightly sour, thanks to the addition of black rice vinegar, the dish is great as part of a multi-course meal where the other dishes are even more intensely flavored and spicy. More

Trevisano May Be the Best Vegetable You've Never Grilled

You've never grilled trevisano or radicchio? I don't blame you. I pity you, but I don't blame you. They're both hearty bitter lettuces, and they both become remarkably sweet and succulent when charred over a live fire. Served with a drizzle of good olive oil and saba—a sweet wine-based condiment—along with a sprinkle of gorgonzola cheese, it's the best vegetable you've never grilled. More

Quick Curtido (Mexican Cabbage Slaw)

What sauerkraut is to a dog and kimchi is to a Korean pancake, curtido is to a variety of Latin American dishes. This funky, vinegary cabbage, onion and carrot slaw brings crunch and a hit of acid to a host of rich, long-cooked dishes that call out for brightness and texture. Traditional curtido is prepared days in advance of when it'll be eaten, enabling it to develop a fermented tang, but this shortcut version—ready in only an hour—is a nice fallback when you don't have time to think ahead. Try it spooned atop braises or sandwiched into Mexican gorditas. More
