Ingredients (15)

Kugel

Pastrami Mixture

Start Cooking

Prepare the Pastrami Mixture

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and salt; cook for about five minutes, until translucent.

  2. Add garlic and cabbage, and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until softened.

  3. Add pastrami, brown sugar, mustard, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Stir to combine.

  4. Cook over low heat for at least 20 minutes, preferably 40–60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is golden brown and fragrant. Set aside to cool completely.

Prepare the Kugelettes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line muffin pans with three dozen paper liners. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, eggs, and salt. Add cooled pastrami mixture and noodles. Stir to combine.

  3. Divide mixture among the prepared muffin pans. Top each kugelette with crispy fried onions. Bake for about 25–30 minutes, until firm.

Note:

These freeze nicely in an airtight container. For best results, freeze between layers of Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper.

    Change sauce

    Would it work if I change up the sauces, do teriyaki or maple syrup for hot sauce and soy?

    Sure, you can play around with this recipe however you'd like. As long as you like the flavor combination that you are adding then it should still be delicious.

    I would substitute it with caramelized onions and maybe mix with some breadcrumbs if you want a crunch. Yes- just make sure to grease your pan enough so that they don't get stuck.

    Pastrami Lukshen Kugelettes

    Good, but revise the salt

    This recipe is like a deli roll, but in kugel form. Very clever! However, because of the salt content in the pastrami (at least here in Israel), if my family would request this again, it might be a good experiment to leave out the salt both in the pan fry part and also in the final assembly (because it is my habit already to salt the pasta water). Plus, amounts being what they are here, both the package of noodles and the container of meat are slightly higher than what the recipe calls for. Therefore, it would also be a good idea to increase the dark brown sugar and mustard. Thank you!
