Recipe Cards BIGOS Ingredients One 33 ounce jar of Sauerkraut One Savoy Cabbage Two pounds beef Two pounds pork One pound of “breakfast” sausage links ½ pound smoked bacon One pound Kielbasa One onion One SMALL can of Tomato paste or sauce 3 to 5 Bay Leaves salt, pepper, oil, sugar, allspice 1). First, get a jar of Polonaise Sauerkraut and a pound of kielbasa (don’t use watered down sauerkraut that comes in a plastic sack with lots of water and vinegar). 2). Then, get the best beef and pork with a minimum of fat. Cut off all that you can before cook- ing. 3). Get a half pound of thick sliced bacon. 4). If you cannot find a Savoy cabbage a regular cabbage works just fine. 5). Start by getting a large pot of water boiling. Add the sauerkraut. Let it bubble away. 6). Cut up the beef and pork into little fork size squares and brown. Generally this takes two fry- ing pans (one each for beef and one each for pork). Season with herbs and spices. 7). Grate the cabbage. Throw it into the boiling pot. 8). Chop up the onion and in it goes too. 9). When the beef and pork is browned. Pour both in the pot. Drippings and all. 10). Cut the kielbasa into short pieces and sear in one of the frying pans. The searing keeps kielbasa from mushing up when it spends a lot of time in hot water. When seared, into the pot it goes. 11). Cut all the bacon, except one slice, into half inch long pieces and fry. Drain off the extra fat as necessary. When the bacon is done eat the single strip and throw the pieces in the pot. It’s ok to cook the sausage in the same frying pan with the bacon. Little chunks, any size. 12). Add a little (teaspoon full) of salt, a half teaspoon of pepper (go light on this), one eighth cup sugar, and the bay leaves to the pot. 13). And here’s the final touch. Dump in a SMALL can of tomato paste or tomato sauce. Stir. Add water as necessary. Cook at low heat. They call this simmer. The longer it simmers, the better it gets.
