Hungarian beef stew, comforting and warming. All my husbands friend flock around in the fall when I make this. I prefer to omit the potatoes and serve over noodles.
- Heat the oil in a large stock pot. Dust all the meat in the seasoned flour and fry until browned, remove.
- Without rinsing the pot, add the butter and cook the onions, pepper and garlic until soft. Put the meat back in and add the tomato paste and paprika.
- Add the potatoes at this point (if using). Add water to just barely cover and simmer on low heat for 1-1 1/2 hours.
I leave out the potatoes too and I LOVE this recipe! It reminds me of the Goulash I had in Southern Germany. I like it best served over rice but this time I think I'll try it over Spaetzel. Thanks for the great recipe!
