This tasty recipe originally came from my Grandmother's Hungarian neighbor. This goes well with a simple potato dish,a side of carrots are a must for me when I have it, and a nice crusty bread.

Wonderful! This is very tasty. My light beer was Yuengling Premium Light. I tossed in about 3 large cubed potatoes and made it a one-dish meal/stew. This is quite a treat for pork & sauerkraut lovers. Thanx!
