|Stir-fired Bagel with Cabbage and Bacon|
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar (we used Chinese black vinegar)
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 dried red chili pepper, snipped at one end
2 slices fresh ginger, smashed
1/2 teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
5 slices bacon, cut cross-wise into half-inch cubes
1 Tablespoon coarsely chopped garlic
6 cups cubed green cabbage (about a pound)
2 large plain bagels, cut into half-inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Combine soy sauce and vinegar in a small bowl.
2. Heat 14-inch flat bottomed wok over high heat until a bead of water vaporized in one to two seconds, then swirl in the oil, and add the chili, ginger, and peppercorns, and stir-fry ten seconds or until aromatic, then add the bacon, reduce the heat to medium, and stir-fry three minutes or until the bacon is slightly crispy on its edges; and then add the garlic and stir-fry for ten seconds until just fragrant.
3. Add the cabbage leaves and stir until they wilt, then swirl in the soy sauce mixture and the bagel cubes and stir-fry for one minute or until well-combined.
4. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook one minute or until the bagel cubes have softened. Then uncover, sprinkle on the salt, and stir-fry just until well-combined, then serve.
