Beef Cutlets with Buckwheat

Bitki wołowe z kaszą gryczaną

Let me introduce you another staple set in Poland for dinner. Beef cutlets simmer in sauce, served with buckwheat and pickled cucumber – what can be possibly better? Maybe Kotlet Schabowy or Bigos:)

For Kotlet Schabowy recipe check: Breaded pork cutlets. For Bigos check: Polish Hunter’s Stew.

Beef Cutlets with Buckwheat served with pickle cucumber on the plate.


  • beef cutlets
  • flour for tossing
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 5 seeds allspice

Cut beef into cutlets, gently thin them by pounding, season with salt and pepper.

Toss cutlets in flour and saute in the frying pan for few seconds on each side. Place them in the pot.

Fry chopped onions, season with salt, add to the pot.

Pour water to the pot, so that cutlets were covered, add bay leaves and allspice and simmer for 2 hours.

Onion and flour will make a sauce thick. Check every several minutes so that the dish did not get burn.

Enjoy Beef cutlets with buckwheat served with pickled cucumber, they are delicious! Smacznego:)

    1. For one cup of buckwheat I add 2 cups of water. Salt. Bring to boil and set aside covered so that the water soak in the buckwheat.
      In Poland you can get it in each grocery store, you probably can get it in Polish stores or online.
