Byczki Sweet Sauerkraut Soup is not a popular soup in Poland nowadays, but this is a soup my Grandma was cooking years ago. Her roots were in Eastern Poland, she was born on the area, which after a II Worlds War has become a Belarus territory.

The taste is sweet and sour, one of my favorites.

Byczki Sweet Sauerkraut Soup served in a plate.


  • 1 l/ 4 cups chicken stock
  • 3 potatoes
  • 0,45 kg/ 1 lb sauerkraut
  • 0,5 cup sweet cream
  • salt, pepper

How to prepare a chicken stock you can check here:

Chicken stock is a concentrated flavor, for soup add another 4 cups of water and boil it.

Add peeled and cut potatoes and cook for half an hour, until they are almost cooked.

Add chopped carelessly sauerkraut, boil for another 20 minutes. If you add sauerkraut too early, potatoes would not get cooked, as sour cabbage sauce makes cooking stop.

At the end add sweet cream, first toughen cream in a plate of a soup, then pour it back to the pot.

Byczki Sweet Sauerkraut Soup is ready to enjoy by the whole family. Smacznego! 🙂

    This was wonderful and easy! I added a few mashed garlic cloves to the pot while simmering the potatoes and sprinkled some spicy smoked paprika on top at the end.
