Food Fare: Recipes for LeftoversHunter's Stew

Bigos Mysliwski

In a large cooking pot, soak mushrooms in 1/4 C water for about two hours. Then bring to a boil and simmer for thirty minutes. Remove mushrooms from water; slice and return to water in cooking pot. Wash the sauerkraut; squeeze out excess moisture. Add sauerkraut to cooking pot with mushrooms and water. Stir. Then add apples, tomatoes, peppercorns, and the bay leaf. Cover and simmer for about one hour. Add the meat and the bacon; simmer for another hour. Suggestion: Serve with rye bread or steamed potatoes.


Note: Bigos Mysliwski is one of the oldest traditional Polish dishes, and yet one of the most simple. It is also delicious when reheated as a leftover.
