Fried noodles and cabbage is delicious comfort food! If you love simple buttered noodles with pepper and salt, Add caramelized onions and sauteed kale to the mixture. In addition to the fact that these two ingredients give the dish flavor and texture, it provides a bit of balance, thanks to adding a bit of vegetable matter. This dish is straightforward and inexpensive. It makes a beautiful appetizer or a base dish for a more extensive dinner.


The butter is the culprit—the butter and the onions that have been caramelized. The slight sweetness of caramel, combined with the creamy butter and specks of salt pepper splattered on top of these noodles, is fantastic. The soft cabbage and delicate egg noodles aren’t to be missed either. This dish is so simple and full of taste and texture. You only need to taste for yourself.


Two tablespoons of cooking oil ($0.08)

One yellow onion ($0.32)

Eight oz. wide egg noodles ($0.90)

1/2 head cabbage (4-5 cups sliced) ($1.28)

Two tablespoons butter ($0.20)

Salt and pepper according to your preference ($0.05)


Cut the onion into 1/4-inch wide strips. Add the onion along with cooking oil to the pot. Cook over medium-high heat until onions soften and are browned around the edges.

While the onions cook, Remove the cabbage’s core, then cut into strips of 1/2-inch width.

After the onions have begun to caramelize some around the edges, add the chopped cabbage into the pot with salt, a pinch, and around 1/4 cup water. Continue to cook the cabbage until tender, around 15 minutes. You can use the water to wash any brown bits accumulated in the middle of the dish.

While the cabbage is cooking, bring a pot of water to a boil to cook egg noodles. After boiling the water, you can add the noodles and cook until the noodles become tender (about 7 mins). Rinse the noodles using a colander.

When the cabbage is cooked, and the cabbage is cooked, turn off the heat. Add the cooked, drained noodles, butter, and a good amount of spice and salt to the pan. Stir until the noodles are well-coated, and let the remaining warmth melt butter. Taste the noodles and cabbage and add salt and pepper according to your preference. Serve hot.
