Polish Wild Mushroom Sauce

polish traditional recipe

Something eaten by many Poles on a regular basis is wild mushroom sauce. Here is one of two recipes we use to make our sauce. A link to the other recipe can be found at the bottom of the page. Both go extremely well with many Polish dishes.

Polish Mushroom Sauce

Ingredients needed:

  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 100g Podgrzybek or Borowik mushrooms
  • 50ml double cream


  • Melt the butter in a pan and add the garlic and onion (if you are including it). Fry gently until soft.
  • Add the wild mushrooms and double cream and gently simmer for around five minutes.
  • Serve warm over any meat or vegetables.

We generally use dried mushrooms for the recipe but during the autumn mushroom picking season fresh Podgrzybek or Borowik mushrooms are used.
