In a large pot set over medium-high heat, combine the cabbage, carrots, sherry and rice vinegar. Bring to a boil.
Add the mussels and pour plum sauce over top. Cover with a lid, Turn the heat to high and cook until steam pours out from under the lid and the shells are open, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 1 minute. Discard any mussels that do not open.
Stir mussels well to coat with sauce. For a complete meal, serve with steamed rice.
