Adapted from Traditional Czech Cuisine
Serves 4


500g pork shoulder
1 onion
200g sliced fresh wild mushrooms
20g dried wild mushrooms
1 tbp white flour
1 tsp caraway seeds
1/2 cup stock (preferably white)

Chop the meat into cubes and chop the onion finely. Brown the onions. Add the meat and cook on both sides. Soak dry mushrooms for 1-2 hours before hand. Slice and add to the cooking meat. Douse with the stock. Add salt, caraway seeds, and pepper.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Add mushrooms. Continue simmering for another 15 minutes. At the end, thicken with the flour mixed with a bit and water. Cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with potatoes, rice or pasta.

Was in Prague for a holiday and as always, I bought a cookbook there to play with. Very homey rustic dish that goes brilliantly with rice. Also caraway seeds are supposed to help with digestion! Next up, beef goulash!
