Something different to do with Napa Cabbage?

I got a beautiful napa cabbage at the farmer's market this morning and I am looking for something to do with it that's different than the usual.

Make kimchi! Homemade kimchi is the BEST!

Homemade kimchi is great (I make it myself), but that suggestion is neither original nor unusual.

It would have been more helpful had MartiC mentioned what he/she normally made with Napa cabbage, so people here wouldn't suggest previously executed dishes. Alas, that information was not provided.

It might not be unusual to you, but maybe it is to MartiC? Anyhow, let's try to be helpful and kind here and keep the snark to a minimum?

Cut into bite sized pieces. Saute with an onion, some ham, some chopped sundried tomatoes (or whatever tasty bits you have in the fridge). Serve over spaghetti with lots of parm cheese.

This Vietnamese Crab "Coleslaw" is very good (I've subbed shrimp): http://cooking.nytimes... Shredded Napa cabbage is also good in Asian noodle salads.

My mother use to make a simple soup by simmering a cut of top round (sometimes called "london broil") until tender, then simmering the napa cabbage (halved), until it was tender as well. The broth was seasoned with only salt and black pepper. Cut up the beef and returned to the broth, but leave the napa intact. You picked off the leaves as you ate (family-style). Serve with rice and a main 'entree'. Nothing too exotic, but comforting and filling on a wintry evening.
