One day when I was preparing Italian sausages, I decided to do something different. After browning them, I put the sausages in a pot and added other ingredients, ending up with this stew that my husband and I like very much. We have four grown children and will soon celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary!
This flavorful stew works well with a variety of wild game. The meat turns out to be very tender and the sauce is thick, with a nice pepper presence. We like the stew on the hot side, so season to your taste.
My mother has been making this stew since the 1940s and prepared it for our family many times through the years. It's loaded with vegetables for wonderful flavor and pretty presentation. - Judith Wood, Fredericktown, Ohio
We really enjoy pork, so I’m always searching for new recipes, especially those from ethnic backgrounds. Because of the sauerkraut in this goulash, my husband was hesitant to try it, but he ended up sopping up every drop with his bread. If you’re like us and don’t care for caraway seeds but like the flavor, grind or crush the caraway seeds.
Looking for a heartwarming meal-in-one on a nippy autumn evening? Try this hearty stew from Margaret Peschke in Hadley, New York. Cubed steak makes it quick and economical.
Tip: Combine leftover onion soup mix with 1-1/2 cups sour cream for a tasty dip, or with 3 cups water for soup.
THIS RECIPE was given to me by a dear friend many years ago. Served with homemade bread and a green salad, it makes a wonderful meal.
Even people who don't like turnips find they enjoy their distinctive flavor in this stew.

"This is one of the tastiest stews I have ever made," notes Dixie Terry of Goreville, Illinois. "It's hearty and especially good for folks on restricted diets because most of its flavor comes from herbs and spices.
