Well tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and that probably means CORNED BEEF and Cabbage. WRONG!! I am going to celebrate my Irish roots Polish style with Gołąbki. I can’t get Corned Beef here (I have looked!) but cabbage is everywhere so I am going to make this recipe instead.
We will however have some green sugar cookies shaped in shamrocks for some Irish good luck!
I know I shared this recipe a few weeks ago but this is too good not to share again in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!
A few weeks ago, I spent the day learning to cook this AMAZING polish dish Gołąbki with my dear friends Ewa and Kornilia. They remember cooking these with their grandma’s. So what are Gołąbki’s? They remind me of stuffed cabbage that my grandmother made just she didn’t cook the meat ahead of time she but the casserole dish in the oven to cook. Just that these polish version has a sweet tomato sauce on top. It took about 3 hours for us to make them.
So off we go to make them!
- Ingredients: 4 cabbage heads, 1/2 kg of bacon, 2 kg ground pork, 2 onions, 2 bag of instant rice (not in the picture).
- Combine all the ingredients and add spices. (Marjome, salt, pepper, no measurements just to your tasting)
So what special thing are you going to do for St. Patricks Day?
