I finally found some Hungarian paprika at the store, and have been sampling various paprikash recipes. Eventually, I came up with my own. This is similar to a Polish paprikash that my dad used to make. I would not call this an authentic Polish or Hungarian recipe though.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 lbs stewing beef, cut into chunks
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock or 1 1/2 cups water
- 4 teaspoons paprika (Hungarian)
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1Toss the beef in the flour, sea salt and pepper until well-coated.
- 2Heat the butter over medium-high heat in a heavy pan or dutch oven. Add the onion and garlic, then add the beef while shaking off excess flour coating. (Set aside any leftover flour because you might need it later) Fry, stirring occasionally, until the beef has turned brown, about 5-8 minutes.
- 3Add the stock/water, paprika, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, mustard, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce the pot. Stir and bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer for 2 hours. Stir occasionally.
- 4After two hours, add the drained chickpeas and cook for a further 30 minutes.
- 5Remove from heat. Add the yogurt/sour cream, but be sure to temper it with a bit of the warm sauce first to make sure it does not curdle. (If your stew looks watery, you can stir the leftover flour you set aside earlier into the yogurt before adding it to the pot to thicken the sauce nicely. If not, just discard the flour and add the yogurt by itself.) Stir until the paprikash turns a dark orange color.
- 6Serve over egg noodles, pasta, rice, mashed potatoes or, my favorite- fresh gnocchi.
