Help with Polish hunter's stew (Bigos)
Hello all! My first post her :). Awesome forum, been looking for something like this for ages!
Anyone I am from the UK and my girlfriend is Polish and always moaning on about how she can never find proper home made polish food in the UK and how much she misses it! Her favourite dish is Bigos so as I am in love with cooking I thought I would give it a shot and make it for her as a surprise. I know the general idea of how to make it so I didn't follow a recipe as such.
Pork shoulder, belly pork, lots of varieties of mushrooms, smoked polish sausage, bacon, prunes, sauerkraut marjoram, peppercorns, cabbage, onions and a beer among other things, however. I just checked on it while it is simmering away, and the liquid of the stew looks very greasy, I am not sure if this is right!
Could someone with some experience with polish cuisine give me some help and or advice? I would really appreciate it :).
Thanks in advance!
