Transylvanian Goulash
(Szekely Gulyas)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound sauerkraut, fresh, canned or packaged
  • 2 tablespoons lard
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • ¼ teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 3 cups chicken stock or water
  • 2 pounds boneless shoulder of pork, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • teaspoons caraway seeds
  • ¼ cup tomato puree
  • Salt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • How To Cook:
    1. Wash the sauerkraut thoroughly under cold running water, then soak it in cold water for 10 to 20 minutes to reduce its sourness.

    2. Melt the lard in a 5-quart casserole and add the onions. Cook them over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until they are lightly colored, then add the garlic and cook a minute or 2 longer.

    3. Off the heat, stir in the paprika, continuing to stir until the onions are well coated. Pour in ½ cup of the stock or water and bring it to a boil, then add the pork cubes.

    4. Now spread the sauerkraut over the pork and sprinkle it with the caraway seeds. In a small bowl, combine the tomato puree and the rest of the stock or water, and pour the mixture over the sauerkraut.

    5. Bring the liquid to a boil once more, then reduce the heat to its lowest point, cover the casserole tightly and simmer for 1 hour. Check every now and then to make sure the liquid has not cooked away. Add a little stock or water if it has; the sauerkraut should be moist.

    6. When the pork is tender, combine the sour cream and heavy cream in a mixing bowl. Beat the flour into the cream with a wire whisk, then carefully stir this mixture into the casserole. Simmer for 10 minutes longer.

    7. Taste for seasoning. Serve "Transylvanian goulash" in deep individual plates, accompanied by a bowl of sour cream.

    To Serve: 4 to 6
