Pork stew with sauerkraut – Toros káposzta

by | Feb 11, 2014 | Meat dishes

Pork stew with sauerkraut (toros káposzta) is an obligatory dish of pig-killing day in several regions of Hungary. Traditionally it’s served for lunch, it’s a real energy bomb, very tasty, high in calories. It’s easy to prepare, it can be fouled up only in one way: if the pork doesn’t get softened properly.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
