I made a few alterations to the recipe. First, I added tomato paste to the mixture (the tomato soup seemed rather bland by itself, the paste made it more hearty), also I added diced carrots to the stew. (Most Polish dishes have carrots - I was surprised this recipe did not call for them.) Finally, the recipe made no mention of any side-dish, I chose to pair this stew with another traditional Polish staple - mashed potatoes. I skipped the sour cream this time around - but will give it a try next time. Overall, this dish was quite simple to make, certainly got rave reviews from my husband. I will make this stew again.
