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.

"This Goulash is very similar to how my mom made it years ago! Very good! I add the Hungarian Sweet Paprika to mine, instead of plain paprika."

"Made this recipe as is and it was great. Next time I may add more dill, but this is a great recipe."
