Author Notes

Last week's "sexy cabbage round-up" and this week's genius recipe (Madhur Jaffrey's stir-fried cabbage) have gotten me in high cabbage mode. I love cabbage, and this is probably my favorite cabbage recipe. It's based on a recipe of a friend, who got it from her mother-in-law, who came from the former Czechoslavakia. —louisez

What You'll Need
  • 1 head green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter, oil, or chicken fat
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 12 ounces egg noodles or bow ties
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper to taste
  1. Melt fat or heat oil. Add onion and saute till translucent. Add cabbage. Saute, over low heat, till lightly browned. Stir occasionally. This may take 20-30 minutes.
  2. Cook noodles while cabbage is cooking. Noodles should be undercooked a few minutes (they'll cook more with cabbage). Drain well.
  3. When cabbage is lightly browned, add cooked noodles. Add sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook about 10 more minutes over low heat.
  4. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and serve.
