Braised Cabbage and Mushroom Piroshki

Good morning! For today’s Tasty Tuesday, we will explore a piece of Tatyana’s cookbook, Beyond Borscht!

My boyfriend has an endless fascination with Russia and Ukraine and bought this book with a gift card he received for Christmas. I must have learned much about Poland from him.

And… I LOVE to cook! He picked two recipes and asked me to pick one to try out this weekend. I settled on the Piroshki instead of the Pilaf (which I will one day try)! This is my first Russian dish I made from home!

Most of the ingredients were easy to find in the store, but I had a difficult time looking for the sauerkraut! I’ve never eaten it before. I spent perhaps half an hour looking for it being misdirected by all the workers I asked along the way. I guess they don’t eat it either.

I was about to give up, but I remembered that Tatyana said that her grandmother said sauerkraut was her secret ingredient! I couldn’t give up. Of course, it was on the top shelf not at eye level. I looked at the can of Bavarian style sauerkraut in awe.

I was hungry and decided to improvise the recipe. I didn’t feel all too confident in making the bread to deep fry in the time my stomach was growling, so I bought some bakery-made bolillo rolls.

I got to work and asked my boyfriend to help! Now that he’s Covid-free, he couldn’t wait to try out this recipe! We chopped all the ingredients up and sautéed them in a frying pan for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Everyone was curious and asked a lot of questions!

Oh! It was delicious!!! 😍I added a bit of white wine vinegar in there. We saved a ton of money too. The Ukranian restaurant takes pride in being one of the few in town, so the owner naturally charges a bit more than what I’m willing to pay for. Only for special occasions. 😋
