  6. skivster says:

    You dont know whats good untill you taste this shit! Also it can’t be _JUST_ plain lard.
    It needs to be with onions, garlic and marjorine

    Polish national dish? πŸ˜€

  8. ioni2005 says:

    Actually it was quite popular in Eastern Europe… And not so bad either. It was eaten also by people that use to move around a lot (peasants) and not by people sitting in the front of the screen. πŸ™‚

    bread, lard, paprika and salt

    This is traditional food in Poland and it came from very poor part of polish society, Many people likes it, because during the time of socialism (1945-1989) when people didn’t have much good food, unless they lived in a village and grow it by themself. This simple pice of bread with lard was something to enjoy, something tasty. We are talking about war game and polish soldiers did not have much food so this was much much better than just piece of old bread. For me and many people from outside this food might souds disgusting and it probably is (I’m vegeterian living in Poland) but still this is a part of polish tradition. Same like pizza in Italy and Tortilla in Mexico this is poor people food (pizza and tortilla is of course much better). We have other traditional food in Poland like dumplings, but can you image soldiers making dough for dumplings (four + warm water),then stuffing (potatoes, cottage cheese, salt, pepper,optional with fried onion) in a tank? With such a poor society? I dont think so. Bread with lard was much simple thing to make, to enjoy and to convert it into energy to fight for their contry.
    Like the sound of it or not – if you will be in Poland try it. Unless you are a vegetarian like me, then try dumplings (called in Poland – russian dumplings).

    I was hoping for pierogies =/

  12. Soreh says:

    As a Pole I think it’s very fitting Polish dish. I know it appears as poor-man choice, and not as subtle like pierogi for example, but it’s exactly exactly what I imagine eating while sitting atop my faithful tank. Heck, I would eat that and then eat bread with butter and sugar sprinkled atop of it for dessert!

  13. Me says:

    Polish food consumable should be horse-meat.

    • SJ says:

      Horse is a friend, not a food for Poles, no one will ever eat a horse meat if it’s not a great hunger, siege, or some other extreme situation.

    And a pickled cucumber.

    In fact in semi-cold or cold climate, a shot of easy to digest fat is a great thing to warm the body.

    Thick slice of traditional bread with crispy crust covered with lard prepared with pork skin and onions is one of the best things in the world to eat. Yet, it has to be well prepared and served in right temperature – 15-20 degrees would be best i think, before it starts melting and it becomes just an oil.
    It’s quice nourishing and, according to wikipedia, not as bad for your health as one could think πŸ™‚
    In restaurants it is served as a starter for soups (Ε»urek!) and main dish. I guess you could compare it to bread with olive oil served in italy and spain

    Doesn’t sound very different from bread and dripping which I grew up eating in the UK.

  17. Aslain says:

    it’s far from Eww…. Rita πŸ™‚ as a Polish I eat that a lot in 80’s, it is actualy tasting good, add some salt and chive and you are good.

  18. mike t says:

    Seems fair enough on the face of it after all Russian tanks get ‘extra rations’ as most Russians were poor peasants without any food and in the army at least they got fed something better – so all in all its probably pretty accurate for back in the bad old days

  19. Rita, every country have a dish that is completly inedible for other nations, and this is one from poland πŸ˜€ we have quite a lot of these, for example “chopped cabbage that has been pickled in brine” XD

    My father is of Hungarian/Slovak descent and he ate stuff like this. He and brothers also ate potato chips with butter! It’s no wonder he had quad bypass back in ’84; and I give thanks that I still have him in my life.

  22. exocet6951 says:

    Better than having food ration tickets :v

    Like the old joke goes (when the USSR still existed, and is a poignant joke at the expense of the Soviet Union, not Poles themselves) : “How do you make a Polish sandwich? You put a ham ration ticket between two bread ration tickets.”

  23. Homer_J says:

    Nowt wrong wi’ a bit a’ lard.

  24. drwycior says:

    Om nom nom. Screw the vege.

  25. fighting_falcon93 says:

    Really WG? Other nations get stuff like chocolate, buchty, pudding, croissant, and then you give Poland a piece of bread? Why not give Poland Makowiec, it’s also very popular?

  26. BattleBudgie says:

    What? Hungarians eat it for hundreds of years as well, and it’s great. A bit of salt on it, onions and/or tomatoe slices, and there you go. You should try it sometime πŸ˜‰

  27. S the K says:

    And I thought the Soviet crews had it rough. The Soviets’ performance-enhancing consumable is an extra C-ration. The Japanese have the right idea in that their performance-enhancing consumable is sushi.

  28. theolice says:

    You have no idea how good it tastes, especially with some salt and onions or something

  29. Ew, really? Next time you gonna be like ‘oh I’m too good for horse sausages’ and ‘liver is disgusting’, like mericans are :v Lard is great with salt, paprika, and onions, as others said. I still love it, it’s definitely not a poor man’s food either, beats margarine any day of the week πŸ˜›

  30. marshal89 says:

    Tastes not as bad as it sounds. My grandpa likes it really much.

    and dont forget:
    “Fettbemme fressen verboden! Mach die Glotzen off” (Its a german thing)

    Rita why do i have this impression that you dont like Poles?

    • Rita Sobral says:

      The frack? People get banned on my twitch channel when they try to make lame jokes about the Polish, I hate no nation/country.

      • Dowbor says:

        Ok my mistake. Sorry. I was confused also by this SilentStalker abbreviation, and also by many malicious comments under the “polish” topics, like “create server only for polish players” or “LoL! That’s why I love WG! Trolling siemkas at it’s finest! GG WG!”. I know that many polish tomatoes are morons without personal manners but that kind of hateful comments unfortunately are very popular here.

        My apologize Rita.

    • Istvan Toth says:

      buddy, she doesn’t dislike polish people, she just finds the proposed consumable wierd. She is from Portugal, and grew up on a different cussine than others ( like us, east europeans). Give her the bennefit of a doubt and a biiig slice of freshly baked bread, still steaming , with lard, paprika an salt sprinkled on top, topped with sliced onion and I am sure she’ll love it after the 2nd bite πŸ˜› . As a blogger and community contributor she is one of the most balanced people I know, second maybe only to QBB. What she could be frustrated of, are bad players with over 10k games no mater the nationality , but I bet we were all there once or twice.

  34. Ivan Dimitrov says:

    I think WG is taking the piss on the Polish. They could have used “pierogi” or “schabowy” or anything else. But no they chose the most peasant food available which will be disgusting for the people who have not tried it.

  35. HmanSA says:

    I’m from South Africa and I used to eat this at my granny’s house. She baked fresh bread then we spread the lard on and sprinkle BBQ spice on it and it was delicious. Haven’t eaten it in many years.

  36. Xavier Moavero says:

    Why not pirogi? Or kolachkes? Literally anything but that!

  37. unable2pwn says:

    Interesting how this would be an insult for some countries and a delicacy in others. I still have to wonder if it wasn’t meant as a sly insult to Poland tho

  38. Milan Donic says:

    With some fine chopped garlic and ground paprika mmmm nom nom

  40. Xeno says:

    poland why u do dis

  41. mike says:

    i had this when I was a lad..

  42. That sounds delicious? I mean, being American I’ll take my case of cola first but this doesn’t sound to bad. It’d certainly be a decent breakfast with some salt, and that’d get you through the day!

  43. ammarmar says:

    This is a very strange choice for PL food. The most popular “military” dish in Poland is “grochΓ³wka” – pea soup. Whenever soldiers show up on some kind of event, parade or show, they often bring one of their field kitches and serve “the true military pea soup” to the crowd πŸ™‚

  44. BlackPaw says:

    American willl just put ketchup on it….. fine.

  45. dominikkost says:

    As much as loaf of bread with some spiced-up lard is certainly a kind of Polish food, there are more iconic dishes- pea soup mentioned above, but also the pierogis or kielbasa (sausage) praised by the Tenacious D in one their songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LBxr5ZScqE

    There was another english song about Polish food which made me laugh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yh5RauFb0LQ

    • Anonymous says:

      Well, most of the premium foods are easy to make “snacks”, rations or sweets. So grochowka as full dish isn’t optimal choice. Take into account that canned pork fat is used even now as one of the crisis rations in polish army, besides the “modern” MRE-like shit

  46. iceshapedgod says:

    Mhew? You haven’t eat the real traditional Polish lard then Rita. Althou I’d prefer to have kielbasa as in-game consumable πŸ˜›
