Halushki
« on: Mar 15, 09, 08:27:03 am CDT »

It's a Polish cabbage and noodle dish pronounced almost like it is spelled:  Hall-u-sh-kee.  There are no really accurate cook times or temps as this is my husband's grandmothers receipe, so there was alot of 'cook until it looks like this' which does not translate well here.   :) 

Ingredients:

1 medium cabbage
1 pound of bacon - roughly chopped
2 large onions, chopped
1 package of egg noodles
salt and pepper to taste.

Cook egg noodles as directed and set aside.  Core cabbage and boil until you can pierce it with a knife.  Cool a bit and then chop.  Set aside.  It's important to not cook these until mushy.  Cook until just done or a wee bit under done.

In a large skillet, fry the bacon.  Add onions and cook until soft.  Add chopped cooked cabbage and drained egg noodles.  Stir to combine.  Add at least a teaspoon of kosher salt and pepper the hell out of it. 

Cook in pan stirring every now and again making sure you scrape down to the bottom.  Cook for about 10 min. when all the flavors have combined and it's getting little burn-y bits on the bottom.

"1 medium cabbage"

I'm out.  Nothing turns me into the Hindenburg faster than cabbage.

Methanius Brassicae - (me thĀn ē us   Bra sik kay) - n, a horrible, yet common, disease of internal gaseous generation and the requisite discharges caused by the consumption of cabbages, usually resulting in larger methane production, disgusting foul odors and loud, wet flatulent noises in males. The imbibing of alcohol accelerates and enhances this condition; n, the title of the man whose job is to fill up the dirigibles and zeplins with his odiforous ass breath; commonly called cabbage gas.

I guess the colorized version of the Hindenberg disaster should have depicted blue flames?


Maggie, the dish sounds good. The end result has texture right? Al dente? Not just cabbage mush?

Correct.  That's why it's important to not over cook the noodles and cabbage when you first boil them.

Otherwise it will be mush.
