Blake Royer at Serious Eats adapted this from a recipe at _Simply Recipes_. In this case, "paprikash" refers to a stew with both paprika and sour cream.

I don't know what the previous reviewer was talking about because I see no country of origin for this dish. HOWEVER, this is one of the best comfort foods you'll find on this site! It was simple to make and economical. I followed the recipe as stated...then put it in a casserole dish and baked it at 350 F for 45 min. stirring occasionally. The broth absorbs into the potatoes and sauerkraut. Served with a dollop of sour cream, marble rye bread and butter...mmmm! Thank you for posting this delicious belly warming recipe DrGaellon.

  1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy soup pot. Add the onion, garlic and paprika, and saute until the onion is translucent and very soft, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the sausage and cook for a minute or two to begin rendering their fat. Add dill, caraway, broth, water and potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook 15 minutes.

  4. Add sour cream and stir until hot; do not let it boil.
