Pulled Pork Haluski


2 tablespoons butter

1 small cabbage, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced into half-moons
10 oz wide egg noodles
2 cups pulled pork (I suggest using a slightly sweet pulled pork like this apple pulled pork)
freshly ground black pepper


Heat the butter in a large skillet. Add the onions, cabbage, salt, pepper and saute until the onions and cabbage are quite soft and just starting to brown. Add the pulled pork and continue to saute until heated through.

Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and add to the pork mixture. Stir and saute 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately.

My thoughts:

Halušky is an Eastern European dumpling somewhat similar to spaetzle but in the US, haluski (or haluska) is a cabbage and buttered noodle dish that is sometimes made with kielbasa or bacon. I always like to get at the Polish festival but never made it at home. I had a bag of egg noodles I got for free with a coupon and a cabbage so I thought today is the day! I love cabbage so much it sounded like the perfect dish. I didn’t have any bacon or sausage but I did have some leftover pulled pork so why not use that? I’m always looking for a way to repurpose leftovers! This was a fun way to use the pulled pork without making hash (which I do love) or just having another sandwich. It was filling enough to have as its own meal yet didn’t seem like I was eating the same thing I did the night before. Totally worth moving into the rotation.
