OP serbandpolish
3 Nov 2006 #3
Kopytka, kopski is what we called it........Take 5 med. potatoes, cube and boil to mash........1 large egg....... flour ..........Mix potatoes withthe egg and add flour until you get a dough that is loose and does not stick. Roll the dough out on board that is coated with flour and cut into narrow noodle strips. Bring salted water to a boil in a big pot and drop the noodles in gently. when they are done they will float up.

It sounds like you are trying to describe " Tokochaky " or chocolate pinwheel cake and it is very good. I am sorry I do not have a recipe for that.

I've got one for you serbandpolish...but I don't know the name of it. It's rolled up beef, stuffed with mushrooms and some type of cheese on a toothpick with mushroom gravy.

How do you make snake steak?

OP serbandpolish
6 Nov 2006 #9
I don't know the polish name for it but it translate to a Beef Roll.....2 lbs. of flank steak.....olive oil.....3 gloves of garlic diced fine.....3 ounces of mozzarella cheese.....1 small onion diced fine......1 small red pepper thinly sliced......2 cups of mushrooms diced fine.....Take the flank steak and put on cheese, onions, garlic and red pepper. Roll it up and tie with cooking string and place in a trevit. Add enough water under rack so it does not dry out the meat. surrond with potatoes like a roast and coat with olive oil. Sprinkle parsely, salt and pepper to taste. Set oven at 425 and cook for 1 hour. After cooking take the juices and add flour, mix well until it thickens and add mushrooms with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Slice meat into 1/2 inch slices and pour gravy over it and serve with the potatoes.

I think you are making fun of me but I used to live in the southern part of the U.S. I heard of this recipe while down there and it is pretty good...... First you field dress the rattle snake. Rattle is the best. Slice the meat into strips. Take the meat and coat it with flour and brown it in a saucepan with butter. Remove the meat and add salt and pepper with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Put in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour. Fry 1 pound of bacon and pour the grease into the previous pan add the snake and coat well. Drain the snake meat add diced bacon and put back into the oven for another 1/2 hour. Serve with baked potatoes and cole slaw.

Have you tried it? I can't even imagine what Elephant tastes like

6 Nov 2006 #15
I have lots of Polish and Serbian Recipes.

No have not I think it is illegal...1 med. size elephant.....2 rabbits, optional.....salt and pepper......8 gallons of brown gravy.....Cut medium size elephant into bite size pieces, this will take about two months. Add enough brown gravy to cover. cook over an open fire for about 4 weeks at 465 degrees. this will serve 3,800 people. If more are expected, 2 rabbits may be added, but do this pnly in an emergency as some people object to finding a hare in their stew.

That recipe is in my Serbian cookbook. I think they put in in there as a joke and that is the only one. And what Serbians have to do with elephants I do not know. I don't get it. I think they are saying we will eat anything roasted over a fire.

I hope you can help me. My granddaughter has a project at school about Polish Heritage. She is supposed to bake something. Would you have any ideas what an 11 year old girl can make to share with her class? My Polish mother-in-law is deceased and her recipes are lost. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

Polish Vegetable Salad.
Easy and good.

6 potatoes peeled an boiled and diced
8 carrots peeled and boiled and diced
1 cup of peas(canned or thawed)
2 dill pickles finely diced
1 cup mayonaise
dash of salt and pepper

Mix it all up.
You can also add 2 diced up cellery sticks if you wish.

My recipe is about the same as Krysia's, but without peas and carrots. We do use celery. Also use a dash of season salt. What ever you prefer. Good luck ( dobro dosli )

Thank you krysia and serbandpolish for the recipe. It will be easy for her to make. Do you have any Polish cookie or dessert recipes that aren't too difficult to make? I would like to make some cookies for Christmas. My mother has Alzheimer's and lives with us. I'd like to have her help me. It may bring back some special memories.

Dziekuje Ci - thank you

I was looking for a couple of recipes for cookies I used to get at my Serbian relatives houses.
One is a Serbian variation of bugia (anise flovered, cut into strips, deep fried until puffed, coated with powdered sugar)
The other is (and I know how bad this is for your health) also fried and is spongy, shaped in balls with raisins in it.

And if any one wants bread recipes I have collected hundreds.

Why are you called dead duck? Did someone try making czarnina out of you?
Dead Duck
22 Nov 2006 #25
It was more of a istarska minestra :)
And I can't spell it but my Teta called the one the was like bugia "crustula"
and the other "pusrata"
If I never find the exact recipe I will play around with bugia until it gets closer

I am stage managing a play here in Chicago.
The playwright makes mention of a Polish dish a character's mother used to make.
The playwright refers to this dish as "Tochinel."
We have been trying to find out if this is a real dish or perhaps a regional name for a known dish. In the play the recipe is given as peeled and grated potatoes scrambled with eggs, wheat flour and then sauteed like an omlette.

If you have any information on a dish like this, or the meaning of the word "tochinel" we would be super grateful!

Can it be kluski śląskie? These are made of mashed potatoes, an egg and potato flour, but I think with gravy. Tłuczone Ziemniaki maybe, but that can be just mashed potatoes
krysia 23 | 3,058

Those are potato pancakes. In Polish: Placki Ziemniaczane.
Never heard the name tochinel though.
