What a wonderful Goulash!


   4       oz  Lean bacon
   cut into 1/2-inch pieces
   2       lb   Boneless pork trimmed of fat,  and cut into 1-inch cubes
   1       lg    Red onion -- chopped coarsely
   2       lg    Garlic cloves -- minced
   2       tbl   Flour
   2       tbl   Sweet Hungarian paprika
   2       tsp  Caraway seed
   1       tbl   Chopped fresh sage
   2       tsp  Chopped fresh rosemary
   1       tbl   Chopped fresh sweet marjoram or mild oregano
   2       tsp  Chopped fresh thyme
   1       tsp  Salt
   1/2   tsp  Freshly ground black pepper
   2       cup Apple juice or cider*
   2       lb   Sauerkraut -- drained & rinsed
   2   Tart apples (or more) cored and sliced
   1       cup  Sour cream
Red potatoes or spaetzle or egg noodles
Chopped fresh dill & parsley

  *NOTE: Frozen apple juice concentrate, diluted with 2 parts water instead
  of 3, may be substituted for apple juice or cider

In a large, deep roasting pan or Dutch oven, saute bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving 1 to 2 tablespoons of fat in the pan. Add pork cubes gradually, stirring to brown on all sides. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until onion softens.

Sprinkle flour, paprika, and seasonings over vegetables and meat and stir to combine, letting mixture brown slightly. Add apple juice and sauerkraut; mix well. Reduce heat, cover, and cook about 45 minutes, or until meat is tender. Stir occasionally and add additional apple juice orwater if needed.

During the last 10 minutes of cooking, stir in apples and simmer, covered, until apples are just tender. Do not overcook. Dish can easily be prepared ahead up to this point and then reheated.

When ready to serve, stir in sour cream, adding a small amount of liquid if meat mixture is too dry. There should be plenty of sauce. Heat through but do not boil.

Serve with steamed (diced or sliced) red potatoes, spaetzle or noodles (tossed in a small amount of melted butter to moisten).

Garnish with dill, parsley, and reserved bacon, broken into pieces.
