Recipe by Julesong
After doing some research, it appears that this one is a German recipe although I haven't been able to determine it's origin. A recipe adoption. Note: This is a classic Hungarian recipe, not German. Classic Hungarian ingredients include mushrooms, sour cream and Hungarian paprika. Also, Esterhazy is the name of a noble Hungarian family and there is a castle with that name outside of Budapest.
