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.

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.
