Here’s a recipe we cook every week or two. It includes some of my father’s favourite ingredients, Cabbage, Potato, Sausage and Beer!
2 tablespoons olive oil
500 grams of smoked sausages
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 onion, diced
100 ml chicken or vegetable stock
1/2 cabbage, sliced
6 potatoes, cut into chunks
A can of Polish beer
salt and black pepper (to taste)
- Cut the smoked sausage into rough chunks. Add to a large pan and gently fry the sausage, garlic and onions for 5 minutes, or until browned.
- Add the stock, cabbage and potatoes to the pan. Cook for a further 10 minutes. Stirring now and again.
- Add the beer and salt and pepper. Cook for around 20 minutes more or until the potatoes are soft.
This is a quick and easy Polish recipe and a dish that all I’ve cooked it for have enjoyed.
Note: I substitute the fresh cabbage for sauerkraut now and again. This works equally well. Just be sure to rinse the sauerkraut in water before using.
