Reply with quote

Magda,
I wonder if you would be willing to share a favorite kielbasa recipe , that you use for dinner . Sometimes I am able to buy fresh , homemade kielbasa, (instead of the more readily available pre-packaged, factory made )and other than some simple ways my Mom prepared it , or a good sandwich, I would like to try a traditional dish.
I have found many on-line , but wanted one that I know is traditional.

Sauerkraut is not a favorite of mine, so if you have one without, that would be great Confused

Thanks!

james

Hi James,
If you want to be sure that you eat polish kiełbasa according to our tradition you need:
1. nice company
2. kiełbasa
3. good polish vodka

If you have all this first drink then eat Very Happy

It is the easiest way I know to prepare it and really very popular. But I have also found something more complicated for you. It is not at all healthy, there is a lot of meat in it, so most of men like it. It is żur – version from polish mountains.
First of all you need to prepare zakwas, so:
1. pour 3-4 glasses of boiled and cooled water into any kind of stone pottery
2. add one glass of rye meal
3. add 2-4 cloves of garlic
4. add a bit of salt and sugar and a crust of whole wheat bread
5. mix it
6. cover it up with a piece of linen or gauze
7. put it for 3-4 days in a warm place

To prepare żur you need:
1. 3 glasses of zakwas
2. 2 liters of water
3. knuckle of pork
4. 30 dag (it is about 2/3 pound) of smoked bacon
5. 30 dag (it is about 2/3 pound) of kiełbasa
6. 5 eggs
7. 1-2 dried mushrooms
8. salt, sugar, pepper

If you have all of this:
1. put knuckle of pork into a pot
2. add 2 liters of hot boiled water
3. add salt, pepper and mushrooms
4. boil it till the meat will be soft (? Is it a good word in this place?)
5. cut bacon into pieces and fry it
6. cut also meat of knuckle of pork and kiełbasa (but not fry)
7. add zakwas
8. add rubbed (together with a bit of salt) garlic
9. add all the meat you have cut
10. add sugar pepper and salt if needed
Żur in this version should be eaten with hard boiled eggs and potatoes.

If you like cooking try it. In Poland we eat a kind of żur during Easter breakfast.
Bonne appetite!!!

I just can't keep myself from writing this here Very Happy

Found in today's sport news - Brazilian soccer player Roger Guerreiro playing in Polish club Legia Warszawa (quotation):

"What I like in Poland? The feeling of being liked here and żurek, the best soup in the world."

Reply with quote

Magda,
I'm just back from a get together with about 20 friends, where I showed my photos from my trip to Poland, and we all enjoyed some traditional Polish cuisine. You will be glad to know that the Zur was a big hit !! Very Happy
So many went back for second helpings, that there is barely a bowl full left over. Crying or Very sad About half of my friends wanted the reciepe so they could make it themselves. I think they were more suprised at how good it was, then the fact that I was the one who made it.
The only change I made was to use pork shank, instead of knuckle, because I could not locate any, but I don't really think that it changed it at all. It was wonderful !!!
The aroma, ? , from the zakwas got very strong after 3 days, and I was afraid that something might be wrong, but once I added it to the soup, it was perfect.
Thank you so much for sharing with me, it is something I will be making quite often in the future.

James,
I am really proud of you and of polish cuisine. I could not feel more happy even if it was me who prepared the soup. My congratulations. Very Happy

I want to try this! Do you stir the zakwas each day? The 5 eggs in the recipe -- they are to be hard-boiled and served alongside -- don't go "in" the soup?

You don't need to stir zakwas. It is enough when you do it first time when you prepare it and the second one when you want to use it.
Of course, we put eggs "into" the soup.

Bonne chance! Razz

Thank you for replying, Magda, but I still don't understand where the eggs come in. It doesn't show in your recipe. Do you stir raw eggs into the soup while it's simmering? Or do you hard-boil the eggs and sprinkle them (chopped up?) over the soup when serving? I don't want to make a mistake!

I mentioned this recipe to mom when I visited her on Easter. She doesn't know it but said my dad's mom used to make some kind of soup or stew that used a "starter" that she made days ahead of time, left on the counter to "ripen" before making the soup. She didn't like it so never asked for the recipe but my dad did and missed it after his mother passed away.

Just cut the hard-boiled eggs into pieces (2, 4, 8 - it depends on your preferences Smile ) and put them into bowls before pouring the soup. That's it Exclamation

Reply with quote

Just boil the fresh kielbasi, brown under the broiler, or on grill and serve with buttered boiled potatoes and horseradish or (red beet horseradish) at Easter. This is how my grandparents ate it, poor people style, I guess. Smile

We get Inglehoffer cream horseradish. Recipe from the Art of Polish Cooking for red beet horseradish is:
2 pounds of drained canned red beets finely chopped, 5 oz prepared horseradish, 2 teaspoons of sugar.

My father makes it with horseradish, vinegar, sugar, and ground up beets.

If you can find it already made, choose the better tasting brand of Horseradish with Beets, like Fishers, pure horseradish with beets from 2 Lakeview Drive, Newburg, PA 17240.

You can also boil the kielbasi and brown it with cabbage fried in butter with salt and a pinch of sugar. Mix all of that together with cooked kluski noodles.
My husband hates cabbage and he loves the fried cabbage and noodles with or without the kielbasi.
