Fried Cabbage and Noodles (also called Haluski), pan-fried with onions in butter is pure comfort food. Serve it as a side dish or as a full meal.


  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon canola or other neutral-flavored cooking oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 small head of cabbage, cored and sliced or shredded
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 8 ounces egg noodles, cooked al dente
  • Salt and pepper
  • Dash of sweet or smoked paprika


  1. Heat a large, deep pan over medium heat. To the pan, add 3 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil. Add onions and cook for 8-10 minutes or until they begin to soften and become lightly golden brown.
  2. Add shredded cabbage to the onions and toss to combine. Add 3 tablespoons of water to the pan, reduce to medium low, and cover with a lid. Allow mixture to simmer for 15 minutes (or until cabbage is tender). stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove lid from pan, stir in remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, then toss cooked egg noodles with onions and cabbage. Turn heat up to medium and allow everything to cook together for 8-10 minutes, giving everything a toss frequently. Be sure to adjust the heat so that the cabbage and noodles get slightly crispy in places, but so that it does not burn. If the pan seems a bit dry, you can add a few more tablespoons of butter, or a little bit of water or reserved cooking liquid.
  4. Remove pan from the heat and season to your taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
