Bigos (Poland)


Recipe Description
I worked in a Polish bakery last summer and I learned about fabulously flavorful bigos (or Hunter's stew) I put a lot less meat than the original recipe calls for which brings the price down to about 5$ for 4 to 6 servings...not bad! This is the crock pot version.​

put everything in the crockpot and mix well. Cook on Low for about 8 hours.​

1 14-16 oz can saurkraut
2 rounded cups shredded cabbage
1lb kielbasa, sliced
1/3 lbs bacon into chunks
2 carrots, sliced
3-4 cups beef stock
1 apple, diced
1 onion, chopped
1-2 bay leaves
2 tablespoon peppercorns
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup red wine (optional)
1 tsp paprika
4-5 mushrooms, chopped​

Oh that sounds so good right now! It is FREEZING here in FL tonight. I wish I had the ingredients, but I am running out to the Polish Deli on Saturday to pick up some real kielbasi YUM! I alsp prefer the bagged kraut to the canned. Much fresher taste, (to me anyway).

Thanks OP! :stir:

yeah, I too prefer the bagged one but on a super tight budget, Aldi's 80 cent can sure does sound interresting lol
