Hungarian Treasure (Szekely Gulyas)
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 3 hours
Why would you rinse and drain the sauerkraut, and then add back in a half a cup of water, wasting all that good kraut juice?
Easy and Awesome!!
We really enjoyed this. I did tweak it just a bit to fit my busy schedule. Instead of browning the meat and cooking the onion, I put both in the slow cooker raw. I also added one large potato, diced. Instead of using water, I drained the sauerkraut and reserved 1/2 C of those juices instead. We NEVER rinse our sauerkraut - it removes the delicious sour flavor. The layers were pork (cut in half), raw onion, minced garlic, paprika, potatoes, sauerkraut, then pour the juice over top. I cooked for 3 hours, 45 minutes, but probably should have done 3.5. Served it over egg noodles. I forgot the poppy seeds, but we didn't miss them. The dish came out a tad soupy, but again, we didn't mind. I'll be using this one again!
