Winter Pork and Sauerkraut Stew

This is a very traditional Bulgarian winter dish. Sauerkraut or pickled cabbage is very popular in Bulgaria. It’s made by soaking white cabbage in water and high content of salt. You can buy Sauerkraut in the UK in most supermarkets in the shredded form, or you can buy whole leaves from specialist international food stores. You can also make this dish with fresh shredded white cabbage, but somehow it’s not quite the same.

This dish is also very popular during the long cold Bulgarian winters and a family favourite. The meat just falls apart and the cabbage gives it a distinct winter warming flavour. I hope you enjoy it 😉
