Looking for a soup recipe containing cabbage, kielbasa and sauerkraut

25 Apr 2007 /  #1
My mother-in-law had a boyfriend that worked in a nursing home where my mother-in-law volunteers. He used to make a Polish soup for some of the elderly when they were having trouble going to the bathroom that would make things happen. He recently passed away and some of the people have been asking her for the soup and she can't find his recipe. She knows it contains cabbage, kielbasa and sauerkraut. Can anyone help me?

I think the soup is called "Kapusniak" in Polish.

Drain 1/2 quart sauerkraut, reserving liquid. Rinse in cold water, drain in colander, squeeze out excess moisture, and slice quite fine. If the sauerkraut is very sour, scald with boiling water in pot, bring to a boil, and simmer 5 minutes, then drain. up).html

Try googling 'kwasnica'. It's similar to Kapusniak, but from the South of Poland. The recipe above is OK, but this mught be closer.

1 pound fresh cabbage
1/2 pound beef or pork
8 cups cold water
1 medium onion, cut and browned
1 celery root
1 parsely root
1 parsnip
2 carrots
1-2 celery stalks
4-6 dried mushrooms
1 bay leaf
6 peppercorns
2 strips bacon, diced
1 tablespoon of browned flour
1-2 franfurters or salami, diced
1 tablespoon vinegar

Cover cabbage and meat with cold water. Boil and skim. Add browned onion, soup greens, mushrooms and let simmer, skimming as necessary, for 2 hours. In heavy skillet brown bacon and add browned flour, adding some stock to dissolve lumps. Add this to soup and bring to boil. Season to taste, add some sugar if soup is too sharp. Add diced sausage if desired. Serves 8.
