Polish Żur

I’m glad for that I can present you recipe of really tasty Polish Żur.

On the beginning I want to point one thing: Żur is very delicious, so giant pot will be enough only for 24 hours ;-) I can tell it with all surely that this is so effective!

Ok, let’s go to the point! Prepare the spoons ;-)


Step # 1

Boil 3 liter of water. Add the vegetable additive to the boiling water. I’m using “Kucharek” spice but I’m not except that you will find it in your country, so use your local analogue. I have in mind spice with dried and chopped vegetables with salt.



Step # 2

Shuck some potatoes and chop it into little dices. Add concocted potatoes to the boiling water and left them for 10 minutes.


Meat- unchopped
Meat- unchopped

Step # 3

Take luncheon meat and chop it like potatoes.

Step # 4

Are you ready? Add meat to the pot with the potatoes and boiling water.

Step # 5 (optional)

Do you like garlic? It is good idea to throw some garlic inside. But remember that garlic overdosing can change taste of Żur.


Step # 6

Take a glass of water and flow it into another small pot. Pour some flour inside and mix it by – for example – spoon. Do it until there will be homogenous and even.

It is Even? Fine, so it is time to add big cream. Mix it again. Contents of small potato pour into big pot (with boiling water, potatoes and luncheon meat). Turn of the gas jet.

You can add some parsley if you want ;-) Buon apetite!

Sounds very tasty! Now, can you describe what Kucherek is? Is it a spice? Maybe how it looks, tastes or how it is sold would help. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
