Golonka and Kielbasa

Golonka and Kielbasa. The Poles love their pork. A traditional Polish dish called golonka is actually the ankle of the pig baked in the oven until they become crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It is served with sauerkraut, potatoes and mustard. The pork knuckle is cooked with the bone & it must literally melt in your mouth.

It is sometimes served with honey sauce which is especially delicious. A renowned pork delicacy is the so-called Krakowska sausage (Kielbasa) made from cuts of lean pork seasoned with pepper, coriander & garlic. Kabanosy is a thin air-dried pork sausage filled with caraway seed & myśliwska a smoked dried pork sausage.
