  • Heat a large pot with a tight fitting-lidding lid or a Dutch oven over a medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until most the fat is rendered, about 10 minutes. Add the sausage and beef and brown about 10 minutes. Remove the pancetta, sausage and beef with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Lower the heat to medium and cook the onion in the fat, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sauerkraut, mushrooms, mushroom liquid, caraway seeds, pepper and Swerve. Stir to combine and add just enough water to barely cover. Cover, turn the heat to low, and let bubble gently for 15 minutes.
  • Return the meat to the pan and add the wine. Cover and let bubble gently until the meat is tender, about an hour. Serve hot or cool to room temperature and refrigerate.
