My spe-ci-al-i-ty. :) YUMMO!

The smell of fried cabbage and onions
lingers in the air, so thick I can
t a s t e the goodness long after the meal's
been eaten ...
I recall the kluski kapusta
po my Mom used to make; passed down through
the generations, she taught me how
to cook it
(too bad I wasn't as good as her).
But I knew I was loved when she served
kluski kapusta po ... food that sticks
to your ribs
and embraces me in memory.
We are connected through tradition
and good food.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

This is the way Mom cooked KLUSKI KAPUSTA PO:


1 medium to large cabbage

1 small to medium yellow onion

1 bag egg noodles (I prefer extra wide)

margerine or butter to sautee

salt and pepper to taste

You can add keilbasa or ham to the recipe; to me, its good either way.  :)

Cooking instructions:

Put margerine in frying pan, melt over medium heat

Slice up cabbage into thin strips, put in frying pan, saute until it cooks down over medium to high heat, stirring occasionally

Dice up yellow onion and put in with cabbage about 5 minutes before cabbage is ready

Follow instructions on keilbasa package, if adding, set aside

Follow cooking instructions on bag of egg noodles, drain, set aside

Drain cabbage/onion mixture, pour over egg noodles

Add keilbasa or ham if including in recipe

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix well, and....

Eat up!  :)

Serves:  4, depending on how large the cabbage, or how hungry you are.  LOL 

Enjoy.  :)

You've just returned me to my grandmother's marvelous kitchen - her kluski noodles were to die for, and her kapusta - out of this world! And now, I am starving; and yearning for the delectable past.

Sorry I cannot agree with the rest,
But cabbage you can keep, giving me the rest,
Butter I love, keilbasa and ham together for me,
Guess though without the cabbage this meal is not for anyone else, dressed...Ed

Okay Karla, now you got me going! My mom made this dish too. It is also a slovak dish and she made it exactly the same way. I too make it, but not too often anymore because of the butter;-)I have to have it in "real" butter and enough of it to enjoy! I do love it and you have my mouth watering for it now. will have to pick up some cabbage and onions this week! I like it best without the meat.;-)

Ummmm, boy! You just made me drool with this delicious treat of a write! Very well done; brava!

Dear Readers: trust me on this: when she says it is her spe-ci-al-i-ty, it IS that--and so much more! It's YUMMALICIOUS! LOL Mom was one hell of a cook, there was nothing she couldn't prepare that did not taste good(with the exception of her rhubarb pie, which karla loved--but i canNOT stand; i HATE rhubarb!!)! ANYway, karla and i did not inherit mom's talent for cooking. however, thank God, thank God, thank GOD karla knows how to make kluski kapusta po; it is almost as good as mom's was!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin sister, karen lynn. :P *drooling* LOL

Now this is a verse to digest. I happen to love cabbage and anything with it. I had to cook Irish sometimes and this is a staple of the Irish. I can't wait to try this Karla. Yummy11
