With the influx of food threads lately, I've noticed there have been recipes from all different nationalities, yet there has not been one thread about Polish food. This makes this 100% polack very sad Frown.gif So here's some good old fashioned stick-to-your-ribs Polish grub.

Golubki (Polish Cabbage Rolls)


  • 2 medium Cabbages (or 1 large head if you don't like much cabbage)
  • 1 1/4 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (diced)
  • 1/3 stick Butter
  • 1/2 cup rice (uncooked)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp Tarragon
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme
  • 3 dashes of Worschester Sauce
  • 2 dashses of Soy Sauce
  • 2 #1 cans of tomato soup
  • 4-5 Roma Tomatoes (1/4in diced)
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Basil
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • salt
  • pepper



Cut each cabbage in half, and take out the triangular core. Place in boiling salted water until leaves are limp (about 1/2 hour). Or, if you have a pressure cooker (like I do) you can cook the cabbage for 3 minutes in 1/2 cup of salted water (after the regulator starts rocking).


After three minutes:


Cook off the rice according to the package directions and saute the onion and garlic off in the butter until soft. Mix the rice and onions into the ground beef along with the tarragon, thyme, egg, soy sauce, worschester sauce, and some pepper.


Lay a large cabbage leaf down flat and place a scoop of the filling in it.


Fold the leaf around the filling and give a good squeeze to drain the excess water out.


Place in a pan lined with cabbage leaves. Repeat this until the filling is gone. If you like cabbage, take whats leftover and place it on top of the rolls.


Mix the soup with the tomatoes, basil, sugar, oregano, and 1/2 can of water. Pour over the top of the golubkis.


Cook for an 1 1/2 to 2 hours on 325.

GodsMullet's Garlic Mashed Potatoes


  • 3 Large Russet Potatoes
  • 4 cloves Garlic (diced)
  • Milk
  • 1/3 stick Butter
  • 1/8 cup Half-and-half
  • Parmesean Cheese
  • 3 Tbsp Chives (chopped)
  • Salt


Peel and cut the potatoes into large chunks. Boil in salted water until thoroughly soft (about 25 min) and then drain well. Add the garlic and using a large spoon, mash the potatoes up until there's just a few small chunks left in them. Add the 1/2 & 1/2 and slowly add milk until potatoes are like a very thick liquid. Add the parmesean cheese, chives, and salt to flavor.

Money Shot


Finally a fair warning: If this is the first time you are trying cabbage rolls and garlic mashed potatoes, be aware that the next day you are going to be shitting something fierce.
