i loved this! separately the pork, sauerkraut and dumplings were delicious, but together they were superb. it was really easy to make and unbelievably wonderful. the only substitutions that i made was to cut back on the garlic and caraway seeds. thanks for a fantastic recipe.
Now these are directions I can follow EXACTLY! Thanks so much, this is fabulous. I changed not a thing, right down to the laundry.
Oh my....SOOOOOO good!!! My family of men gobbled this up. My dumplings weren't very pretty but who cares? I'll just have to practice some more. This is so worth the effort!!!
This is almost how I make mine, I slit & put the garlic, brown it up in bacon grease take it out add lots of thinly sliced onion, brown them up add the roast back in & add a blob of pork seasoning from Penzey's, add water, bake until fall apart tender.<br/>My dumpilings are just eggs & flour mixed until a sticky mess then rest for an hour, then on a cutting board & with a butter knife over boiling water drop little pieces until they float.<br/>I always use a can of Bavarian sauerkraut just because I like it sweeter then the regular.<br/>This is a standard NY's day meal at our house.<br/>A lot of mess & work but so worth it!<br/>A wonderful Slovak meal!
Sandi, Sandi, Sandi . . . Even if I never cooked, I'd print out all your recipes just for the pleasure I get from reading them! I WILL try this recipe . . . but at the moment I'm pork-and-sauerkrauted out! But thanks for posting. I love dumplings. And pork. And sauerkraut. . . well, you get the idea! Oh, and I hate laundry. Unless it stays out of my way. . . .Janet
This is very close to our Czech family recipe. People who have never tried these potato dumplings and instead have mashed potatoes are missing heaven. The sliced dumplings with the "juice" has won over anyone who has ever tried them. My kids will actually keep a count of how many dumplings they can eat.
