Save time using frozen potato pierogi, then pair them with an easy, quick side of sautéed cabbage and apples. This delicious side dish recipe is perfect for a fast weeknight dinner. In less than 30 minutes, you can cook fresh cabbage, apples, and onion for a savory and sweet companion to your preferred entree—we suggest roasted pork chops. Or eat as-is for a filling vegetarian meal.


  • 1 16.9-ounce box frozen potato-and-onion pierogi

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into rings

  • 1 crisp apple (such as Braeburn or Gala), cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • ¼ small head green cabbage, shredded

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • cup sour cream


  1. Cook the pierogi according to the package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 6 minutes.

  3. Add the apple and cook for 1 minute.

  4. Add the cabbage, vinegar, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring, until the cabbage is slightly wilted but still crunchy, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Divide the cabbage mixture among plates. Serve with the pierogi and sour cream on the side.
