Dominick made this the other day and I absolutely loved it! We took the advice of another reviewer and did not rinse the sauerkraut. We also used "Better Than Sour Cream." Thanks for posting!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh and brown all over, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Without cleaning the skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat.
  3. Add the onion, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer the onions to a 4-quart slow cooker. Add the tempeh, sauerkraut, tomatoes, paprika, wine, caraway seeds, tomato paste, and stock and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
  5. Just before serving, pour 1/2 cup of the simmering liquid into a small bowl and whisk in the sour cream. Stir this mixture back into the goulash, taste to adjust the seasonings, and serve at once.
