I showed you how to make steamed dumplings in the previous recipe. In this post, I show you how to prepare a great meal to go with them. The dish is called Segedin goulash (Segedinský guláš) and it’s a stew consisting of pork and sauerkraut. You will find it offered in most Slovak restaurants.

Chop up one medium onion (cibuľa), and brown it on butter (maslo).

Add cubed pork (bravčovina), along with 1 teaspoon of paprika, half a teaspoon of caraway seeds (rasca), few dashes of black pepper (čierne korenie) and some salt. Fry stirring until pork is cooked on all sides. This will take about 20 minutes.

Now add 1 lb of sauerkraut (kyslá kapusta) and enough water to cover the concoction. Cover, and simmer for 80 minutes, adding more water as needed.
