Haluski (Cabbage and Noodles)
Haluski is a Polish dish of cabbage and noodles that is so simple yet so delicious (and it's budget-friendly too!). It's a must-try that is sure to become a favorite!
Servings: 8 main dish servings
- 1 (12-ounce) package egg noodles, I use extra-wide
- 8 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 (3-pound) head green cabbage, cored and roughly chopped into 1" to 2" pieces
- 1 large onion, sliced about ¼ inch thick (about 2 cups total)
- salt and pepper, to taste
Cook the egg noodles according to the package directions; drain. Be sure not to overcook them so they are not mushy. Note: To use your time most efficiently, move on the the next steps while you are waiting for the water to boil and the noodles to cook.
In a 7 or 8-quart pot (I use a 7-quart Dutch oven), melt 6 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat.
Add the cabbage and onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage is tender (about 15 to 20 minutes).
Add the cooked noodles and the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir to combine until the butter is melted and the noodles are heated through. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
- If you'd like to add some meat to your meal, kielbasa goes great with haluski! Ham and bacon are also good choices. Cook them first, then either mix them in with the noodles or serve them on the side.
