Pan Fried Cabbage and Noodles

Growing up in Indiana, each summer, my dad would pick fresh cabbage out of the garden for this dish. It’s still a favorite for my parents, and I keep this dinner going with my family. Hopefully, one day my kids will be serving this for their family dinners.

Easy to make Cabbage and Noodles 

  • Author: Melissa
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. of butter – The original recipe is 1 full stick o(8 oz.) tter. It’s totally up to you whether or not you use 1/2 or 1 full stick
  • 1 head of cabbage – sliced
  • 1 (12 oz.) package of egg noodles – cooked to package directions and drained
  • 1 medium/hot pepper – I like to use a Jalapeno pepper without veins or seeds
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp. of salt – divided
  • 1/4 tsp. of ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large (12 inch preferred) non-stick frying pan over med-high heat 
  • Add cabbage and cook down for about 10 minutes – stirring occasionally, and turning cabbage over so the top layer gets some time at the bottom – until cabbage is tender and translucent
  • Add more butter or olive oil – if needed
  • Add jalapeno, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. of the salt salt and pepper – stir in
  • Add cooked and drained noodles 
  • Cook a few more minutes to distribute the flavor
  • Add the additional 1/4 tsp. of salt – if needed 
  • Serve with warm bread

Notes

*removing the veins and seeds from the jalapeno will take some of the heat away from the pepper 

*If you don’t like spicy food, you can make the recipe without the hot pepper 

  • My mom used to cook this recipe with one whole stick (8 oz.) of butter. While I think butter makes everything better, I cut the amount in half. It’s up to you whether or not you want to increase the amount to the original recipe
