This recipe goes back years, the beef may be replaced with small meatballs, just pan-fry the meatballs slightly before cooking them with the other ingredients.

Absolutely delicious. Didn't have regular Paprika so I used my Hungarian Hot proved to be a good choice. Both the wife and I really enjoyed every bite. I prepared it in my electric skillet and was so easy to clean up. Thanks again Kitten. Firehouse Cook AKA Cap'n Jack
