Cabbage and pulled Pork - Kalua Hawaii

It is a hommage to a Hawaiian dish- Kalua Pork. I have still pulled pork sitting in my fridge and saw a video from TabiEats on YT with Kalua Cabbage - Hawaiian style.
My way of preparing the dish is a bit more on the ingredients side- but not so much that it is a lot of work.

I am a huge fan of the Japanese TabiEats channel, they show food hauls from Japanese conveniant stores and supermarkets. They cook and travel and it is fun to watch.
One of the 2 presenters lived a long time since childhood in Hawaii and so many dishes from there found their way into the videos. I already prepared some of them, they all tasted great.

180 g cold pulled pork
200 g cabbage
1/2 tsp Hawaiian salt
2 spring onions
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp Bourbon ( optional)
1 tbsp dark sesame oil
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup rice

Heat up the sesame and veg oil in a wide pan and drop in the chopped onions and garlic and sauté a while.  Add the cabbage and let it wilt.
Add the pulled pork and let it crisp up.
To make a bit of steam, add the Bourbon.
Season well.
Cook some rice and enjoy
