Haluski (Cabbage and Noodles)

Amanda Shauger, Tucson CSA

Haluski is a  Polish dish consisting of noodles and cabbage that I learned from a roommate from central Pennsylvania.  When I saw those cabbages in my share, I knew I needed to make this recipe again.  It’s extremely simple and delicious as it is, but can also be varied.  It’s great comfort food for a recession.

1 csa cabbage, cut into ribbons
1 onion chopped
1 stick butter (4 ounces or 8 tablespoons)  I know, it sounds like a lot on paper, but it’s really yummy.
Salt to taste.  Try ½ teaspoon.
1 pound noodles, cooked and drained.  I prefer to use fettucine, but egg noodles or home made noodles are traditional.

Saute the chopped onion in butter in a large skillet.  I prefer to use cast iron.
When the onion is translucent, add the cabbage ribbons and continue to saute until the cabbage is soft.
When the cabbage-onion mixture is soft, toss it in with the already cooked noodles and serve.
Serving Suggestion:  I enjoyed my haluski with some powdered chitpotle.

Variation:
After the onion is sauteed, add one pound of ground beef from the csa and brown until cooked.  Then add cabbage and continue as above.
