Haluski is a pan fried dish that both of my grandmothers used to make of butter, onion, cabbage and noodles. It makes a delicious main or side dish, whatever you're in the mood for. I personally like to let my cabbage get a little brown, but adjust your cooktime as necessary to your preference. The serving sizes will depend on how you are serving it.
- 4 cups wide egg noodles
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 2 cups sliced sweet onions, about 1/8 inch thick
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 6 cups cabbage, sliced thin
- 1 teaspoon caraway seed (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Cook egg noodles according to package directions, then drizzle with a bit of oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together and set aside.
- While noodles are cooking, melt butter in large deep skillet over medium-low heat.
- Add onion, sprinkle with brown sugar and saute, stirring occasionally for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until softened and just beginning to turn golden.
- Add cabbage to skillet, stirring well to incorporate with onion, and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in caraway seeds if using, then cover, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Turn heat back to medium, add cooked noodles, salt and pepper, and stir well until noodles are heated though.
- Adjust seasoning if necessary and serve hot.
I've made this a few times, and the only change I made is to use about 2 tblspoons of bacon grease, in place of all the butter. It adds that extra something, and it's a big hit with my family.
Yummy, quick, and easy. The caraway seeds and brown sugar add a lot of "authenticity" to this dish. The only thing I did differently was to cut back to 3 Tablespoons of butter, use Kluski noodles, and sprinkle some garlic salt on the noodles before I topped them with the cabbage-onion mixture. I will make this again. Thank you so much for sharing a treasured family recipe.
This was wonderfully different and extremely tasty. I did add some Polish sausage so that we could have it as a main. Many thanks
