Glut of chinese cabbage in our veggie garden. Looking for ways to use them in entrees, rather than a side dish. Thanks!

I once had soup prepared by a Russian lady which had shredded cabbage and pasta in it. You could also juice some.

Cabbage is great stir fried into fried rice (as is kimchi!)

Dumplings (Asian style or pierogies); stir-fry; stuffed with meat/veggies. Pickle it and make kim chee or Japanese/Chinese style condiments. Braise it with corned beef (pretend it's St. Patty's Day). Braise it with olive oil and thinly sliced leftover meat.

you can also use them as wrappers/parcels and stuff them with whatever filling you like- meat, mushrooms, etc..

drop individual leaves of the cabbage into boiling water for up to 30 seconds or until pliant, then shock in ice water.

once stuffed, they can be steamed or pan-fried. if baking or roasting, i would recommend some sort of basting liquid to keep it from looking dry and ugly :(

How about making dumplings? http://www.food52.com/recipes/10880_chinese_dumplings

Also, this week's contest finalist would make a nice main course that's a little different: http://www.food52.com/recipes/12352_okonomiyaki
