Krautfleckerl is actually hungarian cabbage and noodles. I am sure I will get hate email for blending Thai flavors with a traditional Hungarian meal, but I could not help myself. At the end of each week, I go through my fridge and cupboards and see what needs to be used, in an effort not to waste. I had cabbage left over from some fish taco's I had made. So I started looking up cabbage recipes. Honestly, I could not even begin to tell you which site I found a cabbage and noodle recipe. The pictures inspired me, but I did not use any part of a recipe, mostly because a lot of them had meat and egg noodles and sour cream and such. I just figured, cabbage, noodles... thai noodles, and spice... well that works for me! This is a very spicy dish. Perfect for a Spring or Summer picnic. Because we live in California, it is perfect for every day!
