Noodles and Cabbage.
I know I’ve neglected this blog for a long time. But over the weekend I saw a segment of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives on the Food Network and this one place was making Kluski. She was carmalizing the onions and cabbage – that hooked me.
So here’s my version of what I saw —
1 small head of cabbage sliced (about 3 cups)
1 medium onion
1/2 lb of bacon – crisped in a large frying pan – reserved a little of the bacon grease in the pan
3 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup Chicken Stock
Salt and pepper
8oz. of wide egg noodles (or noodles of your choice – try whole wheat) cooked to al-dente per package directions and drained.
After frying the bacon to well done crispness, leave a little of the bacon grease and add the butter. In the same pan fry the cut-up cabbage and onion to almost brown (carmalized). Salt and pepper as needed. Add the chicken stock and let that reduce just a bit. Add in the cooked egg noodles and mix into the cabbage and onions then add crumbled bacon. Blend together, re-season and serve.
