From Polish Country House Kitchen's Hunter's Stew (Bigos)

Bigos, or traditional Polish Hunter's Stew, is one of those homey recipes that changes from home to home. In fact, in From A Polish Country House Kitchen, Anne Applebaum and Danielle Crittenden describe the stew as Poland's version of chili—long stewed meat with a suggestion of vegetable served with thick rustic bread. Their take blends pork, venison, beef, veal, and sausage with cabbage, sauerkraut, and mushrooms for a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners, hearty meal for the meatiest of meat lovers. In other words, it's an awesome addition to your late winter repertoire. More

The Food Lab: The Best Way To Grill Sausages

Haven't you ever wished that your juicy pork chops were perfectly seasoned all the way to the center? Or that your tender pork tenderloin were just a bit juicier and fattier? Or maybe that your flavorful, smoky ribs had a decisive snap to their bite?

I know the combination doesn't sound all that appealing at first, but in this case it really works. A custardy mix of eggs and cream are mixed with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, and caraway seeds, all poured into a pie crust that's been brushed with Dijon mustard. On top of that goes chopped country ham and a bit of chopped parsley—it does wonders to lend a lightness to what's otherwise a very serious pie. More
