Segedínský Guláš is a Czech goulash that my mother in law makes usually for my birthday. This goulash is pork, sauerkraut, and plenty of paprika. So savory and one of my most favorite dishes on the planet. Hence, most won’t eat it because it doesn’t look so appetizing and there are those of us that know it’s good we will eat three bowls 🙂
Therefore we even had this at our rehearsal dinner. Hence, most of the people won’t try it. A few did that were used to or had something similar before. However, this isn’t like sauerkraut on a hot dog. That’s just gross in my opinion. Seriously, the flavor of the sauerkraut really merries well with the paprika and pork. Additionally, the pork becomes extremely tender. More importantly, Sauerkraut doesn’t have that strong vinegar taste in this dish.
In the Czech, goulash (Czech: guláš) is usually made with beef, although pork varieties like this one do exist, and are served with bread dumplings. Hence, in Czech bars it is often garnished with slices of fresh onion and is typically accompanied by beer. A popular variant of guláš is segedínský guláš, with sauerkraut. Additionally, we always drink beer with it. Usually I like a good dark beer or pilsner.
With this recipe you can try something very different from what you may be used to. Taste a little bit of Czech for dinner tonight.Print
