Hungarian Krautflecker



1 tablespoon of salt
4 cups of finely shredded (or grated)
1 cup finely sliced onion
4 tablespoons butter (vegetable oil or other fat)
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups cooked broad egg noodles, drained


Mix the salt and cabbage together and let stand for 30 minutes.
Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Heat the butter in a deep skillet, add the onions, cabbage, sugar, and pepper.
Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until cabbage is browned, for about 25/30 minutes.
Add the noodles and toss to blend thoroughly.
Note: To reduce fat, you can use just one tablespoon of butter and saute the cabbage for a few minutes, then finish with a little chicken stock, stirring frequently.
