Every once in a while, I just get a hankering for halushka/haluski/cabbage and noodles (you say tomato – I say tomahto). This old-fashioned Polish peasant comfort food makes a great side dish to pork. Our favorite is a lemon-garlic-herb marinated pork tenderloin on the grill.
This past weekend, Marty grilled the tenderloin while I whipped up this haluski and a nice beet salad, and voila! – Yummy deliciousness on a plate and in my mouth!
It is SOOOO easy and SOOO inexpensive to make.
You start out with a stick of butter, a head of cabbage, a large sweet (Vidalia) onion, a bag of Halushka noodles, and garlic, salt, and pepper to taste. (What’s that cost? About a total of maybe $5?!)
In a large skillet, melt the butter and sauté the garlic.
And the sliced sweet onion.
Coarsely chop the cabbage.
And add to the buttery garlic and onion yumminess with a nice dash of salt
And coarsely ground pepper to taste (which I am L O V I N G on everything lately)!
Then you sauté and reduce it down for about 10 minutes. I starts out looking like a lot of cabbage
while that is working its wonderfulness, add the bag of noodles to a large pot of salted boiling water
and boil for about 8 minutes.
I like to make it a little ahead of time, put a lid on it and let it “soak” and marinade. When ready to serve, sauté for a couple more minutes to get some of those noodles crispy brown, and ENJOY….
