Polish TV interviews with foreign viistors in and aroundPoland's stadiums and fan zones during Euro 2012 listed such foods that caught their fancy as: ruskie, pierogi, zurek, golonka (pork hocks), szaszłyk (not exactly Polish!), zrazy (roulades), kiełbasa and bigos. Many said: 'Nice! Delicious! Tasty! I loved everything!'

'Nice! Delicious! Tasty

The pierogi, zurek, kielbasa and bigos all have my vote. Didn't kapusta make the list?

It's a delicious Hunter's Stew. I'll be sure to have a bowl at the upcoming Polish Festivals in Southern Cali. We got em in Yorba Linda, Los Angeles and San Diego :)

Yuck! I suppose it could be prepared that way. My mom would use a combo, of what ever meat's avail or leftover in the fridge. Kinda everything but the kitchen sink can go into bigos. It's also referred to as a Poorman's Stew.

Do you know how to make it?

Pgtx has provided a recipe:)

Yes, venison and other game (boar, pheasant, hare, etc.) make for a superior bigos. But there should also be lots of kiełbasa, pork, and also beef, veal, even duck and turkey. But it's not a Mulligan stew that contianing all the fridge's leftovers.. You don't find peas, carrots, potatoes, green beans, etc. in bigos. The basic veggies are sauerkraut and (optional) fresh cabbage. Onions, prunes and apples plus a splash of wine are often added.
