I have a question about step 2 on the recipe "Suspiciously Delicious Cabbage" from fiveandspice. It says:

"Stir in the ginger and cook for about a minute. Then, add in the cabbage, stirring well to coat it with the butter and other flavors. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 15-20 minutes, until the cabbage has softened and caramelized."

Medium heat -- you may want to increase it toward the end to help with the caramelization.

If you start off too hot, you'll start to burn the sugars in the dish, rather than caramelize them. and no, I wouldn't cover it.

Yeah, no cover with medium heat. The higher heat is trying to cook it carmelized and crisp, not stewed and soft like low heat with a cover would do. But do keep an eye on it, all stoves, and all pans, and combinations thereof, are different.
