Haluski (Pan-Fried Cabbage and Noodles)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook egg noodles according to package directions, then drizzle with a bit of oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together and set aside.
  2. While noodles are cooking, melt butter in large deep skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. 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.
  4. Add cabbage to skillet, stirring well to incorporate with onion, and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Stir in caraway seeds if using, then cover, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Turn heat back to medium, add cooked noodles, salt and pepper, and stir well until noodles are heated though.
  7. 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
