How to prepare other ingredients
Cabbage - julienned
Separate the leaves and remove the core. Cut the leaves in half lengthwise to make it easier to julienne, then stack, roll up, and slice very thinly from end to end.
Cabbage - bite-size pieces
Separate the leaves, remove the core, cut the leaves in half lengthwise, and then stack. Cut into 3 cm (1.2 in.) wide strips, then cut into 3 cm (1.2 in.) wide squares.
Cabbage - wedge cut
Cut in half lengthwise, place the knife at the center of the cut surface, and cut into equal halves. This cutting method is used for simmered dishes such as pot-au-feu and when making grilled cabbage.
Cabbage - roughly chopped
Separate the leaves, place the knife diagonally along the core to remove. Cut the leaves in half lengthwise, stack, and then cut into 3 - 4 cm (1.2 to 1.6 in.) wide strips.
