Clean, core, and slice cabbage. In a large bowl, sprinkle cabbage with salt and let stand for 30 minutes. Squeeze cabbage, handfuls at a time, and discard the juice. Heat oil in a large saucepan and stir-fry cabbage over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and add pepper to taste. Prepare noodles. Place drained noodles in large saucepan with cabbage. Toss to coat evenly.

Looking for the sweetened version? Dust it with a little sugar!
