Placinte – Cabbage Filling

Average Rating:

Typically, Moldovans make this recipe using homemade pickled cabbage, but since not everybody always has that laying around the house, here’s an alternative, using a combination of fresh cabbage and sauerkraut, to create the same taste.


3/4 cup diced onions
3/4 cup oil
1 small cabbage, or about 5 cups shredded fresh cabbage
2 cups sauerkraut
1 egg



Heat oil in a frying pan. Add onions and saute until lightly brown.


Add the fresh cabbage and fry until it starts to soften, then add the sauerkraut and continue cooking until lightly brown.


Add the egg to the pan and mix well. Continue cooking until the egg is fully cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.


This recipe is to be used for the Placinte recipe found in the Breads category.
