Young Cabbage Slaw

New Spring cabbage is a deliciousness that I use for many dishes in Spring. I make it stewed, I make soup and lately I made young cabbage slaw in a different way than usual. I loved it, so I decided to share it with you. Recipe is so easy and there is only few ingredients needed to have this fresh and crispy side dish. I served it with kotlety mielone (minced meat patties, by some people called Polish hamburgers) and boiled potatoes. A lot of dill on the top and you get a perfect Spring dish.

Gołąbki – Polish cabbage rolls

Pigs in the blankets

I think that Gołąbki – Polish cabbage rolls are one of most popular and most liked Polish dish. Exactly as is in my family home. When my mum asks my children what to cook for our visit, they say: Gołąbki:)

There are many ways to prepare gołąbki, my Mum boils, while many people bake them. Many people cook them in tomato sauce, I prefer to cook gołąbki in a light broth and make a tomato sauce for serving.

Young Cabbage Soup on Pork Bones

Young cabbage is sweet and delicate, it is cooking fast. It is not likely to give a stomach problems as may an old cabbage, stewed for hours. In case of young cabbage soup I minimize the seasoning, just to keep the taste natural. Try Young Cabbage Soup cooked on pork bones. So good with new potatoes!

For broth I used pork bones, which are really cheap. You can also buy pork chop with bone, use pork chop for Breaded pork cutlets and use bones for the soup. I remember my Grandma was using bones for soups, the reason were savings and her approach- not to throw away any food and have respect for food.

Traditionally ‘Zasmażka’ can be added to the soup to make it thicker and reach.
