Stir-Fried Cabbage with an Egg Marinade

Posted Jan 27 2009 8:20pm

A few days ago, I was absent-mindedly flipping through a cookbook, in much the following fashion:

"Hmmm... Hmmm... Egg marinade... Hmmm... What??! Egg Marinade?? What on God's green earth is an egg marinade??"

Having thus read about an egg marinade and been jolted awake by the concept, I of course had to make one...

It turned out to be a true marinade, with all the poignancy of marinade flavor, along with the buoyancy of a bit of egg white to keep the marinade clinging to it's more substantial food partner - crisp-tender stir fried cabbage, in this case...

Stir-Fried Cabbage with an Egg Marinade

2 egg whites, beaten
4 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup water
6 T oyster sauce
6 cups shredded cabbage
2 T canola oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

~ In a small bowl, whisk together the beaten egg whites, cornstarch, water, and oyster sauce.
~ Fold the cabbage into the egg marinade, and set aside.
~ In a preheated wok over high heat, add the canola oil and garlic, and stir fry for 30 seconds.
~ Add the cabbage, reduce the heat to medium-high, and stir fry until the cabbage is crisp tender.
~ Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve warm!

*For the Vegan Version, (aka an eggless egg marinade :-) replace the oyster sauce with soy sauce, and replace the egg by increasing the cornstarch to 2T!
