Porkolt = "roasted". Since I love my slow cooker AND I'm trying to eat healthier, I decided to skip the stove method and add my own personal touches. I omitted the bacon and bell pepper altogether (bacon for fat/cal content; bell pepper because my family detests), used fire roasted diced tomatoes and 2 large cloves of fresh minced garlic, dumped all ingredients into my 6qt. Crock Pot, used diced pork stew meat, stirred, and let it ride for 4 hrs on LOW. I uncovered for 30 min. to let the sauce thicken. I tried it without sour cream and then with. It's absolutely delicious both ways but if you're trying to trim as much fat/cals as you can while still having a succulent meal, I'd say skip the sour cream - you really won't miss it. Prepare to have your home filled with a mouthwatering aroma while it stews in its own juices. We served it on quinoa as it's what I had in my pantry (not to mention the boost in nutrition). This is can stand alone, however; you do not need a starch/filler. The only thing it seemed to lack for me was spice which is why I didn't give it a full 5 stars. I used authentic Hungarian Paprika and it gave a savory punch, but I like a little kick so next time I'll add a dash or two of chili powder. So easy! Can be frozen. Serve with crusty bread and a big bowl of fruits/veggies. Tastes even BETTER the next day. Highly recommend - this is comfort food at its best! =)
