Warsaw Stew

It’s cold outside in Indiana. And that makes for perfect stew weather. And Warsaw stew is a little twist that will keep your  warm and keep  your stomach full.

Here’s what you need

1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
¼ cup water
½ lb  cubed pork
1 tablespoon bacon drippings
1 pound sauerkraut
1 bouillon cube
1 cup diced polish sausage
1 pound sliced cabbage
¾ cup diced bacon
1 large onion
2 tablespoons floor
3 tablespoons tomato paste
Salt and pepper
Potatoes or rye bread

Brown the pork and add it to a stew pot. Add mushrooms, sauerkraut bouillon, and sausage and simmer for a couple of hours. In a separate pan cook the cabbage for 20 minutes in bacon drippings. Take out the cabbage and drain. Fry the bacon and onions until golden. Mix the flour and water and add it to the bacon and onion mixture. Add the cabbage, bacon and onion mixture, tomato paste, salt and pepper to the stew. Serve with potatoes or rye bread. Keep in mind the stew gets better with age. So it’s great if you can prepare the stew a day ahead of time, and reheat it.


  1. It's cold here too and hearty stew fits the bill and then some! Thank you for linking to Super Sunday Sync. :)

  2. that stew looks so good! it doesn't look heavy either. i love dishes like that this time of year.

  3. This looks wonderful! My mom makes a very similar soup (mostly around Christmastime)! I'm from the Czech Republic, and it's one of our traditional soups! This makes me want to make some!!! Especially on a cold, snowy day like today! :)

  4. Pork and bacon drippings and sausage?! Yes, please! This stew sounds fantastic & warming & comforting! I followed you here from the Dream to Reality link party, btw. And I just wanted to invite you to come link up with me at Tasty Tuesdays, where every post gets pinned: Hope to see you there!
