*NOTE: Frozen apple juice concentrate, diluted with 2 parts water instead
of 3, may be substituted for apple juice or cider In a large, deep roasting
pan or Dutch oven, saute bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and
set aside. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving 1 to 2
tablespoons of fat in the pan. Add pork cubes gradually, stirring to brown
on all sides. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until onion softens.
Sprinkle flour, paprika, and seasonings over vegetables and meat and stir
to combine, letting mixture brown slightly. Add apple juice and sauerkraut;
mix well. Reduce heat, cover, and cook about 45 minutes, or until meat is
tender. Stir occasionally and add additional apple juice or water if
needed. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, stir in apples and simmer,
covered, until apples are just tender. Do not overcook. Dish can easily be
prepared ahead up to this point and then reheated. When ready to serve,
stir in sour cream, adding a small amount of liquid if meat mixture is too
dry. There should be plenty of sauce. Heat through but do not boil. Serve
with steamed (diced or sliced) red potatoes, spaetzle or noodles (tossed in
a small amount of melted butter to moisten). Garnish with dill, parsley,
and reserved bacon, broken into pieces.
