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.

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.
