There is Goulash and there is Goulash and there is this Goulash, they are mostly all good but I find this one distinctive. The saurerkraut gives great flavor. Do ahead and reheat the flavor is even better. I use wine cured kraut.

This recipe appears to not have been tested. I made it exactly as stated and found it is far too dry to serve over noodles. I used pork tenderloin and beef sirloin and found the meat rather dry and could have been tastier and more tnnder if simmered before adding sauerkraut. After an hour of cooking the sauerkarut is a little overdone and soft. The flavor was quite nice, however dry the dish.
