Having spent a week in Gdynia on a work trip last year, I couldn't resist putting a jar of Golabki in my trolley when I spotted it in Tesco's. It's imported from Poland so I was hoping it would be quite authentic.
Despite the large jar, there are actually only three Golabki - rice and pork stuffed cabbage parcels - in the jar.
The instructions say to heat them on the hob but I poured the contents of the jar into a dish and put them in the oven to warm up. The sauce is actually quite sweet - it reminded me of the sauce from tinned meatballs (as I remember from my student days, but I haven't actually eaten them for years so I could be wrong !).
I definitely need to make these myself and see how they taste homemade so I've had a quick search online. I love the look of this recipe on Zagleft because it looks truly authentic and traditional (it's based on a Polish grandmother's recipe so it's the real deal) but I also love this slow cooker version. I'll come back and show you how I get on once I've had a go.

If you want some more Polish dishes, how about giving Bigos a go ?
