Barszcz Meets Pot Roast

I found a recipe online called "Polish Pot Roast" from the 1970's. 

I decided to make it for dinner last night. I figured I could get a couple of days without having to stress over making dinner while I prepare for Wigilia.


I think next time, I will cook the cabbage in water seperately for about a half hour before adding to the dish, since the flour from the meat will have by then made a thick sauce that doesn't really help to soften the cabbage well enough for my personal preference.

Also, I think the beets could then be added to the cabbage for another 1/2 hour to get the flavors to blend together more.

It did turn out to have the flavor of Barszcz in the form of a Pot Roast.  It was a hit in our house.  I hope you enjoy this recipe I found.

Today, I am making a list for the local Polish store.  Included on the list are Oplatki, Dried Polish mushrooms, Kielbasa (for Christmas Day and Bigos), Sauerkraut.  We are also starting to make cookies, such as Bezy, Pierniczki and Kolaczki.

How are your Wigilia and Christmas preparations going?
