Healthy, because

Even smarter

The sauerkraut makes this goulash particularly smart: Especially in the cold winter months, the selection of fresh fruit and vegetables is quite limited and the sauerkraut then provides us with plenty of defensive vitamin C. Even better: the sauerkraut contains lactic acid bacteria that ensure a healthy intestinal flora and thus also strengthen the immune system.

You don't want to cook with wine or you don't have any at hand? No big deal, because you can simply replace it with more beef stock and add some red wine vinegar to the Szegedin goulash.
