This is a Hungarian dish. Not easy on the arteries, but mighty tasty!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter
  • 1 large onion, peeled and cut in strips
  • 1 small cabbage or 12 large cabbage, cut into strips
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (16 ounce) box wide egg noodles, cooked and drained (I use a little less noodles)
  • 1 pint sour cream


  1. Melt the butter in a large pan or pot, large enough to hold the chopped cabbage.
  2. Sauté the cabbage and the onion in the butter until glossy and tender.
  3. Add the salt and pepper.
  4. Cover and let the cabbage mixture simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes.
  5. Add cooked drained egg noodles and mix.
  6. Serve with a bowl of sour cream.
  7. Add salt to taste.

The recipe I have for this uses bacon fat instead of butter for a little more flavor; I usually just start with cut up bacon and leave it in for a little texture. I also add smoked sausage and it's a great meal!

This is very similar to how my Mom made cabbage and noodles except that she always served it with cottage cheese! I like it like this!

I'd never had this dish before seeing it on a buffet in PA at Easter. Decided to try it at home. This recipe was the perfect starter. I used half butter/half olive oil. I cooked my egg noodles in turkey broth and combined it all for a very satisfying meal. I will try with sour cream next time.
