Stew (Beef)

Updated: Mar 17

Hungarian Pörkölt is a stew with boneless meat, paprika, and some vegetables. It should not be confused with Goulash, a stew with more gravy or a soup (using meat with bones, paprika, caraway, vegetables and potato or different tiny dumplings or pasta simmered along with the meat), or Paprikás (using only meat, paprika and thick heavy sour cream). The traditional Hungarian stews: Pörkölt and Paprikás along with the traditional soup "Goulash" are considered to be the national dishes of Hungary. There are different pörkölt variations from region to region. In most parts of Hungary pörkölt is made with beef or pork. The word Pörkölt simply means "roasted". Pörkölt is made of meat, onion, and sweet paprika powder. Yellow Hungarian wax peppers, tomatoes or tomato paste, green pepper, marjoram, and garlic are common additions to the basic recipe. Pörkölt can be made with any kind of meat.
