Cabbage is often cooked with canned tuna. It's a quick dish to make.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1/2 cabbage, cut into 1 inch wide strips
  • 1 small onion, or 1/2 large onion, cut into 1/2 inch wedges
  • 1 can (6-7 oz.) tuna, drained
  • 1-2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • vegetable oil for frying


Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet and saute onion on medium-high heat until softened. Add cabbage and stir fry until softened. Add tuna and stir well with vegetables. Season with soy sauce to your preference.

surprisingly good, Member graynod

I was excited about trying this, but got a little nervous after some friends said it didn't sound so good! But even with my bad cooking (I burnt the onions) I was really surprised at how tasty this was. I will definitely make it again, but I think I will use less cabbage, my albacore tuna is in 5 ounce cans by the way. I had one of the big flat cabbages and I think 1/2 of that was too much. Then again, I just ate nearly every bit I cooked! I think I would cook it in my wok too, so I have room to work. Dishes like this make me happy; it cost little, has a lot of good stuff I want to eat, was easy to make, and I enjoyed eating it. Thanks for the recipe.
