Salt and pepper to americans is STIR FRY and SOY SAUCE to asians.
What i would do is
1. Chop some garlic
2. Fry garlic till slightly brown
3. Add cabbage(chopped and washed obviously)
4. soy sauce/salt/oyster sauce
as for the potato, make mash potato and OM NOM NOM NOM
And so a miracle has occured.
