Homemade Polish Boy (A Cleveland Classic)

The Polish Boy (not to be confused with a Po' Boy) is an indulgent mess rarely served outside of restaurants and stands — but we decided to try our hands at making one from scratch anyway. We were in no way disappointed.
If you've never heard of a Polish Boy, that's because you're not from Cleveland. If you ARE from Cleveland and haven't, consider yourself shunned.  
It's our signature sandwich here: Kielbasa, coleslaw, hot sauce, and shoestring fries (yes, fries) served on a hoagie roll. How could that NOT be good?

serves four

- Ingredients - 
Homemade Kielbasa (our Elk Kielbasa recipe is to die for)

one head cabbage
3 cloves fresh garlic
1/4 oz fresh oregano leaves
1/4 oz Italian parsley
1/4 oz fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice

French Fries
1 Russet potato
1/4 teaspoon salt

48 oz peanut oil

Homemade Hot Sauce

Pretzel Sausage Rolls (if you can find them - we get them from Whole Foods; if not, a regular hoagie roll will do)

 - Tools -
Weston Cabbage Shredder
Weston 3-in-1 Grater
Weston French Fry Cutter (preferably with a 1/4 inch plate for shoestring fries)
Weston Deep Fryer (coming soon)

1. Prepare Coleslaw

Use your Cabbage Shredder for perfect cabbage shreds.

Use your Grater to mince garlic, oregano, parsley and basil into the cabbage. Add in remaining coleslaw ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble the sandwich.

2. Make French Fries

Use the French Fry Cutter to slice shoestring fries. Soak the raw French fries in cold water for 30 minutes. In the meantime preheat oil to 375.

After 30 minutes, lower the fresh cut potatoes into the Deep Fryer. Fry for 10 minutes or until they're golden and floating. Once done, remove from the fryer and flip into a bowl lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and toss.

3. Warm Kielbasa

While the potatoes fry, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the kielbasa 5 minutes on each side, or until warmed through the center. Pour just enough hot sauce over the kielbasa to coat.

4. Assemble

Place a kielbasa on a pretzel roll, top with coleslaw, then fresh fries. Drizzle with more hot sauce if you're a hot sauce lover. Bring a paper towel roll to the table with you - this thing is messy, but sooo sooo good.
