Cruise Manager Reka shares with us a traditional Hungarian dish, Paprika Beef. Her recipe uses only a few ingredients. What’s your favorite dish you’ve tasted in Hungary?
1 Onion (diced)
1 Tbsp. Neutral oil (such as Canola, Grapeseed, or Peanut)
3 Tbsp. Hungarian Paprika – you may adjust this amount, based on your preference
1 Small Green Pepper
3 Small Tomatoes
1 Cup Red Wine
1 Lb. Beef, cut into cubes
Salt to taste
Begin by sautéing the onions in the oil until soft. Once soft, add your paprika and a splash of water. Bring to a boil, add beef cubes, season with salt, and return to a boil. Once boiling again, add the 1 cup of red wine, cover, and simmer until meat is tender (time may vary depending upon your kitchen. Begin checking meat after 45 minutes) The meat should be almost covered with liquid. Be sure to check on the dish periodically, as you may need to add more water to keep it from becoming dry.
Once cooked to your liking, serve with spaetzle or pasta and enjoy!
