My Cabbage and Noodles

My version of a well loved combination. Caramelising the sugar gives it the special something. The flavoring with vinegar, butter and caraway is typically German. The flavor of egg noodles is essential for this dish I think, so best don't use pasta.

ingredients

directions

  • FOR THE NOODLES.
  • While preparing the cabbage cook noodels according to package directions and when drained, cut crosswise with a knife to get 1-2 inch sized pieces. OR break noodles into pieces before cooking.
  • FOR CABBAGE.
  • Have all ingredients ready before you start cooking the cabbage. Heat oil over medium high heat in a wide pot that will hold cabbage and noodles.
  • Add sugar and let caramelize without stirring until golden to light brown. Immediately add onion and butter and stir until soft, 30-60 seconds.
  • Add vinegar and cook until almost all has cooked off.
  • Add cabbage, caraway and salt. Mix until cabbage has wilted and looks glazed, 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water, cover and reduce heat to medium low.
  • Braise cabbage in as little water as possible until desired softness, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally and add more water if necessary. Cabbage should be rather dry when done.
  • Taste with salt, pepper, and sugar or vinegar.
  • TO ASSEMLE.
  • Mix drained noodles into cabbage. Cover and let flavors blend for 2 minutes. Serve with a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper on top for a nicer look.

    This dish was well received at my table. We enjoyed the contrast of the soft noodles and the slight crunch of the cabbage. We are also fans of German food so loved the wonderful vinegar, butter and caraway combination. I prepared everything ahead as you suggested and it came together very quickly and easily. It went well with garlic sausage and green beans for a perfect meal. We will make this again. Thanks Inge 1505.
