Pork stuffed cabbage

Den:2012-03-06 Kl: 15:22:28 / Cooking time / Kommentarer: 1

  • Long grain rice
  • 1 Cabbage (preferably big in size)
  • 1 egg
  • 500g pork mince
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Marjoram
  • 1 stock cube
  • Tomato passata
  • Double cream
  • Arrowroot or sauce flour
  • Vinegar


  1. Half cook the rice so it's a little cooked but still a bit hard.
  2. Put the pork mince, and egg into a big mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper and marjoram to taste. (You do need quite a bit)
  3. Add some rice and mix using your hands. (The amount of rice varies so just put in bit by bit and mix until it's about equal amounts - you don't want too much rice)
  4. Keep mixing with your hands until everything is completely mixed together.
  5. Boil some water with a bit of salt and vinegar in a pan.
  6. Carefully peel off the cabbage leaves, taking care not to tear them, and cut off the hard part on the outside (see picture below)
  7. Place the leaves in the pan. Leave in for a few seconds and then take out.
  8. Take a small amount of the meat mixture and put it in the middle of the leaf.
  9. Carefully fold the leaf over so that the meat is inside and the leaf doesn't fall open (you may need to remove some meat) You can look at the photos to see how this should look.
  10. Place carefully into a pan, on top of some left over cabbage leaves. (Place each one next to each other and ontop of each other as you go along, just make sure they don't fall apart)
  11. Once you are done, cover with water and bring to the boil.
  12. Mix the stock cube into some hot water and then pour into the pan.
  13. Add the tomato passata, cover and let it cook on a low heat for about an hour.

14. Finally, take a cup of the sauce out of the pan, and mix with some double cream. Add back into the pan.
Repeat but this time with the arrowroot or flour, to thicken the sauce.

Serve with some lovely freshly cooked potatoes, mashed with butter and cream:D

Camembert cheese & cranberry sauce

You can get some breaded camembert cheese portions, and cook them in the oven until they're lovely and soft and gooey on the inside! Add a spoon or two of cranberry sauce, to add some sweet flavour!
It's a really delicious snack, and actually fills you up quite a bit too! :)

Camembert is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese

Quick snacks

Polish Custard & Kisiel

These little snacks are really amazing when you're short on time and money! They're about £0.70 each (give or take) and they take like 5-10 minutes to make!
My parents got us loads of these when we first moved and then got us more when they came over last time, so we've had lots of them, but we get through them pretty quick!
Here's some tips of how to make them (since the instructions are in Polish!)

1. Measure out 500ml of milk.
2. Take out half a cup, and put the rest in a pan and bring to the boil.
3. Pour the contents of the sachet into the half cup of milk and stir until completely smooth
4. Pour the contents of the mug into the pan of boiling milk and stir slowly until it thickens
5. Eat :D

For the instant mug version
Boil some water
2. Pour boiling water into a mug
3. Pour contents of satchet into mug and stir quickly until smooth
3. Eat :D

I seriously recommend these :)

Polish meatballs dinner

Den:2011-08-17 Kl: 07:20:00 / Cooking time / Kommentarer: 1

Finished meal! The quality of the picture came out a lot worse for some reason :( Probably because the lighting in that part of the kitchen was quite dim, but it still looks delicious :)

  • 2 packs of Minced Pork Meat
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • 1 pack of Double cream
  • Potatoes
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Marjoram**
  • Breadcrumbs**
  • 1 or 2 Raw Eggs
  • Hardened Crusty roll (leave for a day or 2)
  • Sunflower oil
  • Arrowroot
  • Sugar
**Note: These ingredients with a * are better to be purchased from a Polish shop, as they will have a different taste than if you make it from English ones as they are made in a slightly different way. To get the full effect of this recipe, I suggest purchasing them from a Polish shop :)

  • Big mixing bowl
  • Your hands :)
  • Frying pan
  • 3 Regular pans
  • Vegetable peeler / knife
  1. Peel and chop up the onions.
  2. Take the mince meat out of the packs and put into mixing bowl.
  3. Add 1 raw egg, followed by salt, pepper and marjoram to taste. (Slightly more marjoram will make it taste better).
  4. Take the hardened crusty roll, soak it in water, then squeeze all the water out and add to the mixing bowl.
  5. Using your hands, mix everything together well until it is completely mixed. This should take about 5 minutes. -- If the mix feels too dry, add 2nd raw egg.
  6. Once this is done, take a desired amount of the mix and curl up into a ball shape. It shouldn't be too big, as this would make it harder to cook, and you should make one side of it a little flatter. -- They should all be roughly the same size, so they cook thoroughly.
  7. Roll the balls in the breadcrumbs.
  8. Heat up the frying pan with oil, and gently place the meatballs onto the frying pan on a small flame. Once it turns a brownish colour underneath, flip over so the other side can get fried too :)
  9. Once they are fried to a goldeny brown colour on both sides, place carefully into a normal cooking pan.
  10. Using the oil that's already in the pan, add the chopped onions into the frying pan. Increase the flame size. Once they are a bit see through, turn the flame down, and simmer for about 1 minute.
  11. Add to the cooking pan, and add some water. Cover up and cook on a gentle flame for about 10 minutes, to make sure the meat is cooked throughout.

RECIPE-potatoes and carrots
  1. Peel the potatoes, and chop them into even cubes.
  2. Put into a cooking pan, and cover completely with water.
  3. Add salt.
  4. Bring to the boil, and then cook for a further 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are completely soft throughout. (You can use a fork to check this)
  5. Pour the water out, and mash the potatoes with your fork, and add butter if you wish.
  6. Peel and chop the carrots, and put into a cooking pan. Add double cream, sugar and arrowroot. (A small amount)
  7. Cook until the carrots are soft :)

  • The arrowroot may be quite tricky to master, as you need to add the right amount straight away, seeing as you cannot add a little bit and then add more, as this will cause it to go lumpy. If you aren't brave enough to try, go with a simple salad :)
  • You can also make the polish style breadcrumbs yourself - you can buy more crusty rolls and let them go hard, and then you can use a grater to grate them into a jar and keep it until you need it :)
PRICES; (based on Sainsburys prices-guide only)
Note - I do not include basics in my price calculations
2 packs of Minced Pork Meat; £2 each - Onions; £0.12 each - Carrots; £1 per kg - Double cream; £0.82 per 300ml - Potatoes; £0.97 per kg - Marjoram; £0.40 (average polish shop price) - Breadcrumbs; £1.00 (average polish shop price) - Eggs; £1.68 per pack of 6 (so £0.56 for the value of 2 eggs) - Crusty roll; £0.80 per pack of 6 - Arrowroot varies in price, and I have not seen any in the major supermarkets, although people claim it is in the cake making sections! It should be around £2.


Try slicing the meatballs and having them on a sandwich, with some ketchup and pickled cucumbers to taste :) They are a very nice sandwich filler!
