Easy and delicious ramen noodle cabbage stir fry recipe with carrots, stir fry sauce, and fresh garlic and onion. Serve topped with sweet chili sauce for the perfect bite!
It’s no secret that I have a love for homemade stir fry recipes.
This recipe that I am sharing today is just 10 ingredients and so easy to make!
how to make cabbage stir fry
First, remove the core from a green cabbage and thinly slice the cabbage until you measure 5 cups worth.
Try to slice it as thinly as possible for best texture.
Grate the carrots and finely mince the ginger and garlic.
Dice up a yellow onion.
In a large skillet or jumbo cooker combine the cabbage, ginger, garlic, carrots, onion, and 2 tablespoons of sesame oil.
Turn the heat to medium high and stir often, until cabbage is wilted and onion is soft as pictured below.
This will take around 15 – 20 minutes.
When the veggies are close to being done cooking, prepare the ramen noodles.
Once the noodles are cooked, add them to the cabbage stir fry along with the homemade stir fry sauce.
Cook for an additional 3 – 5 minutes, stirring well, until sauce coats the entire stir fry.
From here you can taste and add more soy sauce (if you like a saltier stir fry), or you’re ready to eat!
I love using ramen noodles in stir fry and they’re perfect in this one.
For this cabbage noodle stir fry, you absolutely MUST top it with sweet chili sauce!
The salty nutty flavor of the stir fry pairs perfectly with the sweet slightly spicy sweet chili sauce.
The sweetness also balances out the natural slight bitterness that cabbage can sometimes have.
Just pour a little on top of your bowl and stir it all in!
Literally heaven in every bite and so fast to throw together.
This makes a very large amount (yay for leftovers!)

1. I used organic ramen noodles, so it was a total of 8.4 oz. If using regular ramen most are 3 oz each so you would need 3 blocks.
This stir fry is intended to be topped with sweet chili sauce. It's the perfect slightly sweet and spicy contrast to the mild bitterness of the cabbage. Don't skip this!
