Zach should really be writing this because this is a recipe that he and Lauren, a native Pittsburgh Polish friend, created. Come on Yinz guys, with the prep it takes to get this recipe off the ground, you would think you could write this post too! The recipe and interest in Polish food at large was inspired by Lauren’s grandmothers cooking of Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, Halushki noodles, and Perogies. When asked if Zach and Lauren ever ventured out to any Polish restaurants in Pittsburgh they remarked that Polish food isn’t really the kind of food you rush out to eat at a restaurant because it is often quite bland. Considering that Zach is also an expert in the bland food category, being from the Midwest and all where you eat stews, casseroles, and hot dishes all the time, it is a bit amazing that these two came up with such a killer recipe. Only kidding, these two are whizzes in the kitchen. The secret ingredients in this recipe is the combination of veal and and pork and the use of tomato soup for the sauce.
This Cabbage Roll Recipe even feels a bit classy served on top of their silky smooth, Creamy Mashed Potatoes (recipe below). It will brighten up any dreary fall or winter Sunday evening and feed you all week long.
