Szegediner Goulash Recipe
(Pork Stew w/ Sauerkraut)

This Szegediner Goulash recipe is another example of the strong Hungarian influence on German cuisine. The flavors of the pork, sauerkraut, paprika, and caraway compliment each other wonderfully, while the cream softens it all out to perfection.

Back in the days of the Kaisers, favorite dishes would move back and forth between cultures within the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Even after the empire was long gone, many of those favorite recipes stuck around. It is no wonder why this simple pork stew recipe has withstood the test of time. Not only is it very easy to prepare, but it also tastes great reheated day after day.
