Krautfleckerl- Hungarian Cabbage and Noodles

Marsha Gardner


This dish has its roots in Hungary but is also popular in Austria and Germany. My German grandmother made this using square pieces of pasta, I like to use dumpling noodles when I can find them. I like to fry some chopped bacon and garlic together with the onions and cabbage. This a cheap but very good meal. Edit to say, and hope this helps for others who will try this recipe, the step of letting the cabbage sit in the salt is important, it does add a better flavor to the recipe and the texture.
