That's comfort food for me. I think it's very similar to the Hungarian cabbage and noodles.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir cabbage and onion until cabbage is lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook noodles uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender but still slightly firm, about 5 minutes. Drain well.

This recipe came out quite well. I made the following changes. First, I steamed a large head of cabbage for about 20 minutes. I used half of the cabbage leaves for stuffed cabbage. I shredded the remaining half of the cabbage and used it in this recipe. I used margarine rather than vegetable oil to saute the onions and cabbage. Finally, I mixed in 8 ounces of cooked noodles into the cabbage and onions and added a little more margarine. I served this to my mother-in-law, who, due to infirmities, hasn't been able to make this dish in over 12 years. My mother-in-law agreed that it was identical to the classical slovak version of cabbage and noodles. The final test was serving this to my wife (who hates cabbage and noodles) and she devoured it and said I could make it again. This is a great recipes. Thanks for posting it. Read More

There are many variations to Hungarian Cabbage & Noodles. This one is the closest to the one my Hungarian Grandma & mother used to make. Sweating the cabbage is the key along with real butter. Served it along with smoked Kolbasz (sausage) & Hurka (liver& rice sausage). All gone!!!' Read More

I tweaked the recipe by adding finely diced ham and used Sweet Hungarian Paprika instead of caraway seed. This dish was so savory it could almost stand alone as an entree. Read More

Fairly easy and hard to mess up, so that's great! Only things I'd note: like others have said, use butter or margarine instead of oil, and cover the cabbage while it's cooking to let it steam. I don't care for caraway seeds, so to spice the dish up I used paprika, white pepper, and tossed in some kielbasa. Read More
