A plate of Polish BigosHearty heart-warming comfort food. Can be cooked on the stove or in a slow-cooker. Serve with good rye bread. The secret of Bigos is that it gets better as it's reheated. The more it is heated the better it gets. Also a great make-ahead meal.

Ingredients:

  • 4 lbs. sauerkraut
  • 1 lb. smoked pork bones
  • 1 lb. spareribs
  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and black pepper
  • 4 lbs. cabbage heads
  • 1 lb. smoked polish sausage
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. caraway seeds (optional)
  • 16 oz. fresh mushrooms
  • 8 oz. dried mushroom, soaked in a little hot water
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. flour

Directions:

Brown pork bones and spareribs in a large heavy pot and simmer in water 1 hour.

Add the sauerkraut (washed and drained). Chop the cabbage finely and add to sauerkraut with bay leaves. Add pepper and salt cover and simmer for 1 hour more. Remove lid and keep pot on a very low simmer.

In a pan, fry bacon until crisp, then crumble into sauerkraut mixture. Drain most of the bacon fat and fry sliced onions and mushrooms and flour until they just brown. Add into sauerkraut mixture with caraway seeds (if used). Cut sausage into slices and add to sauerkraut mixture with the tomatoes.

Bring to a boil, simmer 30 minutes and serve hot with rye or crusty bread and/or mashed potatoes.

Servings: 10-12
Time:40-45 Minutes Preparation Time
2-2-1/2 Hours Cooking Time

If you like sauerkraut, you'll love this salad. One of my sister in-law's favorites!

I'm not usually a fan of sauerkraut, but this is really very good! I like the combination of other ingredients. They blend well and make the taste of the sauerkraut not seem quite so strong.

Brown sausage slightly. Combine other ingredients, except cheese. Bake 2 hours or in crock pot 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. The last 15 minutes add the cheese.
