From More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Recipe courtesy of Guy Fieri. "One of the most amazing things on Tripe D is getting inspired by people and bringing that inspiration into my own life. Kelly O introduced me to haluski and I will tell you this: ever since then I've made haluski gone wild, with jalapenos, shrimp, and chicken; for fine dining and for lunch." Guy Fieri
- 2 ounces unsalted butter, divided
- 1⁄2 lb pancetta, thin-sliced, diced
- 2 onions, large, sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 1 green cabbage, medium head, cored, sliced 1/2 inch thick
- 1 cup carrot, cut in 1/4 inch julienne
- 1 tablespoon thyme leaves, fresh chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt, kosher
- 2 teaspoons black pepper, ground, divided
- 8 ounces egg noodles, wide
- 3 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed, and drained
- 1 cup green peas, preferalby fresh shelled, but frozen can be substituted
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 tablespoons Italian parsley (flat -leaf)
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the noodles.
- In a large Dutch oven, melt 1 T of the butter over medium heat and add the pancetta. Cook, stirring, until crisp, 12 to 14 minutes.Remove the pancetta to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Reserve.
- Strain the fat from the pancetta from the pot, wipe the pot clean, add back in 2 T of the pancetta fat, and melt the remaining butter along with it in the pot. Reserve the remaining pancetta fat for another use or discard.
- Add the onions, cabbage, carrots, and thyme.Season with the salt and half of the pepper. Stir to coat the vegetables with the butter. Cover and cook until the cabbage is wilted and almost tender, about 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer until the cabbage is very tender, about 10 minutes more.
- While the cabbage cooks, add the noodles to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions.
- Increase the heat under the Dutch oven to high and cook, stirring, until the cabbage and onions are golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add in the minced garlic and capers. Cook for 1 minute and add the peas, then deglaze the pan with the white wine and add the lemon juice. Add three quarters of the pancetta, combine well, and remove from the heat.
- Drain the noodles and add to the pot with the cabbage. Toss well to coat the noodles with the cabbage and onion mixture. Sprinkle with the parsley and the remaining reserved pancetta.Serve immediately.
We enjoyed this, but didn't think it was something exceptional. DH and I both thought that the ingredients were just a bit much. Don't get me wrong...we enjoy lots of flavor but for some reason this was a bit overpowering for our taste buds. I made as posted (yes, with the pancetta). thanks for posting :)
HOLY Haluski! Guy Fieri's not kidding. This dish completely, utterly rocked. Naturally, I didn't follow the recipe exactly (apparently no one ever does)--I subbed bacon for pancetta cause that's what we had, and I omitted the capers because we don't like them. Everything else I did as specified, including cutting myself with my harvesting knife out in the snow to get fresh thyme. I will make this again. And again. And again. And then my cabbage will be ready to harvest and I may never stop making it!
