    I also have been making this recipe for years. The only other thing I do is after I saute the cabbage I add chicken broth to the cabbage to steam. This way you can cut the butter down and give the cabbage more flavor. We love it!  -  13 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was good, but didn't taste like my mother's! I called her and asked her what she did with hers. She chops up the cabbage, salts it, lets it sit for about 10-15 minutes, then rings the water out of it and sautees it in butter or margarine. And she DOESN'T use onions! I think the onions ruined it for me. It still tasted pretty good, but not as yummy as my mom's! Next onions. 9/23/10 I made this recipe again using my mother's tips (see above) and OH.MY.WORD.!!!! It was PERFECT! Definitely (in my opinion) NO ONIONS! The cabbage gets a sweet taste when you cook it and, combined with the salt and butter, it's mouth-watering. Brings me back to my childhood! With no onions and salting the cabbage before you cook it, I give it FIVE STARS!  -  14 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I too have been making this dish for years -coming from the German/PA Dutch area of Pennsylvania, this is quite a hit. I began serving this up at our Little League games, where I run the concession stand and it just flies out of there. I too, like to saute' the cooked cabbage and noodles together for a bit to mingle the flavors, and I never use onion - I like the cabbage flavor way too much. To finish it off, I sprinkle it with a liberal dose of paprika and mix it all up while I finish sauteing. Its often requested when I have to bring a covered dish. I'm getting hungry for it, just thinking about it.  -  13 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
