Caramelized Austrian Krautfleckerl Red Cabbage Pasta with Raspberries

3040 Min

Krautfleckerl is the Austrian version of fast food: extremely popular and extremely quick to make. We use red cabbage instead of white cabbage here, which not only gives the dish a great color but also provides a slightly fruity flavor. Finally, fresh raspberries are added for a sweet-and-sour touch.

Ingredients 4 Portions


  1. 1

    Remove the outer leaves of the red cabbage, then remove the stalk and cut into roughly bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice the onion.

  2. 2

    Caramelize the sugar in a deep pan or pot — but don't let it burn! Add the butter and dissolve the sugar in it. Reduce the heat a little, add the cabbage and onion and cook until al dente while stirring constantly (around 20–30 minutes.)

  3. 3

    Add salt, pepper and caraway seeds and continue to sweat.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, cook the Fleckerl pasta until al dente and add to the cabbage.

  5. 5

    Meanwhile, melt 1 tbsp. of butter in a pan, add the nuts and breadcrumbs and fry for 2–3 minutes.

  6. 6

    Before serving, mix the raspberries in with the Fleckerl pasta and garnish with the breadcrumbs and fresh pepper.
