Today I decided to make a recipe for more special cabbage soup, one of the family's favourites. It is a Hungarian recipe and is very common in Transylvania under the name "lucskos kaposzta", a thicker cabbage soup.
Cut the pork shoulder that I cut into cubes and chop the dill.
In a large soup pot heat the sunflower oil and put the chopped onion to fry on medium heat. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, stirring occasionally, and fry until the onion softens a little, about two minutes.
After the onion has soaked put the pork meat cut in cubes over it and let it fry a little on all sides until the meat cubes turn white. Then add the sweet Hungarian paprika powder and the crushed paprika cream.
Stir and let it fry for only a few seconds and add a litter of warm water. simmer for about 30 – 40 minutes until the meat is almost cooked stirring occasionally.
Add the sliced cabbage over the meat, mix and pour over a canned chopped tomato. I mixed everything with a wooden spoon, let the cabbage soften for two minutes and add the chopped dill.
Pour the water over the cabbage to be well covered and a little over, and let it boil for 30-40 minutes until the cabbage is cooked.
Serve hot with a little sour cream on the top, fresh bread and chili pepper.
You can use any kind of pork that has little fat such as ham, neck or shoulder.Be careful not to burn paprika because it will become bitter.
