Excellant! Sauteed veal with a delightful paprika sauce flavored with onions, red bell peppers, fresh tomatoes and sweet Hungarian paprika.I made the recipe as directed except for using an additional 1/4 cup of cream to mix with the flour instead of water and served it with egg noodles. This would be a great dinner party dish. Make the sauce ahead of time and reheat it while you cook the veal. Add some chopped parsley to accent the colors of the sauce. I will make this again!

It's always a good sign in my house that a recipe is a keeper when my husband barricades himself in the kitchen with the second helping and won't share it with me! This is a great cold weather dish and the sauce is really delicious. I was excited to use my Hungarian Paprika I got from a friend who spent a few months living there last summer. It was awesome! I would also like to try this with chicken like Jen T mentioned.

Really tasty over mashed potatoes. A high quality paprika is key in this recipe.
