So! I thought I'd surprise my girlfriend and make a recipe from her childhood. I made this recipe, which is quite good, and then found out that what she remembers is Halupki, not Halushki. I guess I should listen better. One thing about this recipe that's a mystery to me is the "Ready in 50 minutes" statement. It took me two hours to cook. Perhaps I approached the recipe too cautiously by cooking with low temperatures... By that, I mean medium low with the cabbage and medium high with the onions and pork. Regarding the pork, I cut it up before cooking it. For those of you who say the recipe is bland, well, maybe that's the way it's supposed to be? I added some cumin (about a teaspoonful) and was liberal with the pepper. I was going to add green chiles but was warned not to. I still believe they would taste good in this. Of course, then it might not be Halushki. Two hours later and no one is hungry anymore because they've all been snacking. Dinner is ready for tomorrow though!
