Need a recipe for this awesome Polish soup
April 27, 2014 7:48 AM Subscribe
I've searched for this soup on Google, recipe sites like Allrecipes, and in Polish cookbooks, with no luck. It must be pretty obscure, but in the Polish neighborhood where I grew up (in Indiana), both my grandmother and my neighbor - who didn't know each other - made this soup. And it's great. So it must be "a thing" at least in some circles, and hopefully someone out there has a recipe.
The soup: it's sweet and sour, with probably a pork broth, vinegar, and sugar. Chunks of pork. Onions, carrots, potatoes, and wax beans.

The aforementioned Polish grandmother and neighbor are long gone, so I can't consult them, and my mom has never made the soup. Through trial and error I've worked out a good approximation of it, but it's not as good as the real thing.
