Who knew something so simple could be so good! I scaled this down for two, and I added a little bacon, frying with the onions and then adding the cabbage. I also used the garlic. It was so ggod I could very easily make this again tonight :) We don't eat cabbage often because I'm the only one who really likes it, but prepared like this, everyone likes it :) A real keeper.

Very, very good. My DH who doesn't like cooked cabbage even said it was good. Next time, though I don't think I will mix the salt and cabbage as it got a little salty. I maybe didn't get it drained well enough. Will make again. Oh and I added crumbled cooked bacon just before eating - yum.

My Austrian grandmother made this when I was a child, it was my favorite food.
Grandma used lard rather than butter and a generous amount of black pepper with fresh homemade noodles, sometimes made with duck eggs, which were about twice as thick as lasagna pasta and cut in paralellagrams 1 1/2" long. The thick noodles must be cooked 20-25 minutes "al dente".

I like it best made with the addition of leftover roast pork loin cut in small cubes, one teaspoon of minced, fresh garlic and 1 - 2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper. (slightly on the hot or "scharf" side)

I've made Kosher style for my Jewish friends with butter or "schmalz" (chicken or goose fat) rather than lard and leftover roast chicken or goose. The goose is superb

Sehr geschmeckt!

This was good and easy to make. I had a bag of coleslaw mix so I used that instead of the cabbage. I did skip the step of adding the salt to the cabbage and letting it sit. I just added some salt to the finished meal. I added more butter then the recipe called for as the noodles didn't have much of a taste once I mixed them with the cabbage mixture. Once I added the extra butter, we enjoyed it more. Hubby still thought it needed something so he added some soy sauce but everyone else ate it as is.

Very good and filling meal. I wanted to make this as more of an entree than a side dish so I added some sliced kielbasa to the recipe. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. I really enjoyed this dish and it paired really well with the pierogis that I had with it.

I made this without the bacon and garlic and we loved it! I think the only thing I will do differently next time is use more cabbage and less noodles. Edited to add: I have made this MANY times now. I always leave out the bacon and garlic and add more cabbage. It's a terrific and satisfying dish!

SO GOOD!!! I followed the recipe, but next time will try it with the bacon and garlic. The name intrigued me and I was so happy I tried it. Served it with German sausage and it was perfect together. This will be made in our house over and over again.

This is a wonderful dish. The onions and cabbage caramelize together with just the right sweetness. After reading your intro, I decided to fry a slice of bacon and added some garlic as you suggested. I skipped the butter and not having sour cream topped it with plain yogurt. This was served with some grilled sausage and whole grain bread for a comforting meal.
