Hungarian Beef Paprika
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
2 rounded tablespoons Hungarian paprika
1 pound stew beef, cut ¾ inch cubes
¼ to ½ cup beef stock
Salt to taste
In large frying pan, heat oil then sauté onions to light brown over medium heat. Add green pepper, tomato, and sauté 10 minutes. Add a little water to avoid burning. Turn heat to low, add paprika, beef and ¼ cup beef stock.
Cook for 1 to 2 hours, stirring frequently until beef is tender, adding beef stock as needed to make a sauce. You can also use a slow cooker instead of the stove. Cook 4 hours on low in slow cooker. Best prepared a day before serving. Serve over noodles.
Chicken can be substituted for the beef.
