So after looking on a few websites, it seemed that most traditional main courses were a stew-like dishes of some sort. I found the 'best' bigos recipe and decided to use that one.
The 'Best' recipe can be found here
Cooks notes - as the recipe was for 8 servings, I reduced the recipe by 50% however I still have enough to feed us for several meals. Having just purchased my new slow cooker, I decided to use that to make this dish so I popped all the ingredients into th slow cooked before doing the morning school run and our bigos was ready without intervention (except a couple of stirs) by tea-time.
I served ours with simple boiled potatos served with lashings of butter - yum!
Harrison - 7/10 - he loved the potatoes and the stew was OK but he didn't like the texture of the slow cooked pork.
April - 2/10 - didn't like the stew - it tasted weird.
Paul - 8.5/10 - the stew had a nice flavour and the meats were good together.
Danie 8/10 - liked the flavours and will make this dish again.
With lots left, we'll be having it again later this week. According to the recipe, it's better a few days old so we'll let you know on our facebook page.
