If anyone out there doesn’t know, Pittsburgh is a melting pot of cultures - I grew up eating a lot of Italian since my family is Italian-American, but I ate a lot of Greek, Lebanese, German, and Polish, too. One of my absolute favorite Polish dishes is Haluski, which is a delicious mix of cabbage, onion, egg noodles, and butter, and it’s probably the easiest thing to ever make. We love it so much, my husband and I had it at our wedding! You can also catch me at the fridge with a fork, eating the cold leftovers. No shame.
This recipe probably serves 4-6 depending on how big your portions are. This is the recipe my mom always made!
1 stick of salted butter
8 oz egg noodles (if we’re trying to be healthy and watch carbs I’ll use less!)
1 small head of cabbage
1 white onion
Salt & Pepper to taste
Melt the stick of butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Slice the head of cabbage in half, then cut around the core and thinly slice each section.
Some people will dice the onion - I like cutting it in half, flipping it onto the flat side, then slicing it into long, thin strips. Either way is delicious!
Add the cabbage and onion into the melted butter and cover, stirring occasionally until cooked down and tender, probably around 15ish minutes.
Boil the egg noodles in salted water until al dente, then strain and add to the vegetables.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
I’ll usually serve with kielbasi or chicken - it’s delicious! Enjoy!!! <3
