    Rita~'s Note:

    Hearty Heart warming comfort food. Serve with good rye bread. The secret of Bigos is that it gets better as it's reheated. The more it heated the better it gets. I like cooking it most the day.This is a great make ahead meal. I posted this recipe using all pork but go ahead and add venison, veal, beef.... I also do add juniper which I love! Then throw in fresh Parsley and marjoram.

      A taste of home during the holidays. Priceless. Thank you so much for sharing this outstanding recipe. I totally agree with another reviewer that it is impossible to just have one serving.

      Made this recipe today and it is certainly a 5 star dish. I used smoked ham hocks in place of the smoked butt. I cut the whole thing in half, substituted some breakfast sausage for the spare ribs and used some chicken broth instead of water. It turned out great. I'm looking forward to trying the recipe just as its written. I have made alot of bigos and this one is a winner.
