I was surprised that although simple, this dish was also very delicious, haertwarming and satisfying. I live in Nova Scotia, and we are having the worst winter in years here, and I havn't been making it to the grocery store as regularly as usual on account of all the snow storms. Therefor I've been on the hunt for recipes that have ingredients in them that I have on hand. I halved this recipe and added quite a bit of onion and garlic powder and s&p. I also added a few dashes of vinegar when I deglazed the pan. I cooked this according to taste as the recipe indicates, and the finished product was very delicious. This type of dish is very different from my usual style of cooking, but my husband devoured two heaping platefuls, and my 4 year old ate her portion too (no small miracle!)My husband said to give this 5 stars, and I heartily second that! Thanks Kris for a nice change.
This is not the "Czech" version of Huluski. This is cabbage noodles. And if done correctly it is very flavorful. The cabbage should be sauteed in the pan until lightly browned along with chopped onion and garlic. Sprinkle salt and pepper and paprika on it. When cabbage is soft mix in with egg noodles and serve. Haluski is totally different dish
Terrific recipe! I've made this, or variations thereof, many times since first finding the recipe. It's best with pork chops and egg noodles but I've also used leftover pork loin, chicken breast, bacon; angel hair or any other pasta I've had on hand. Good quick meal-in-a-pot and my young kids love it.
A suggestion is to use browned butter, it gives a better taste and more eye appealing. Wayyyy too much noodles for the other ingredients make this a dry dish and I hesitate to call it a Polish dish. This isn't a real Polish heritage recipe, as my Polish parents' cooking and authentic cookbooks NEVER use garlic, garlic salt, in their cooking. I think Kris may have doctored this herself, it's a tasty dish the way she makes it but there are better out there. Two stars only for the effort.
What a wonderful recipe! My husband is from eastern Europe and his mother grows, preserves and cooks nearly all of the food his family eats. When he came to the US and lived with me, I knew he missed his country and the home cooking he got there. When I prepared this dish for him he gobbled it up and actually requested it again. Thanks for this recipe!
I like to serve it with a little sour cream, it balances the dish nicely.
This was an interesting change from our usual fare. I used pre-shredded coleslaw mix instead of chopping up a head of cabbage. It needs just a bit more flavor... some chopped bacon with the chops and onion maybe? More (real) garlic?
I have eaten a variation of this dish once a month for 47 years. It is ok as is but will be bland. Fresh or Smoked Kielbasi is a cheaper more flavorful choice or small cubes of Pork butt. Garlic powder is a last resort, fresh is best. Slice the cabbage the same width as the noodles being used for faster cooking and easier eating, Bowties work well too. Increase butter to 1 stick, don't worry you are not eating this every day!, and IF really big flavor is desired, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of CARAWAY SEED, very traditional. Cook all until golden brown for depth of flavor and Enjoy!
Fantastic! I have always been a fan of cabbage & noodles and this version is now my favorite. This dish is great for those cooking on a budget. The next time I make this, I think I'll add a little vinegar as the cabbage cooks down. Thanks for sharing Kris. Will make this again and again.
