Reviews for Beef Paprikash with Fire-Roasted Tomatoes
"If I could give zero stars, I would. I was very disappointed with this bland recipe. The tomato sauce is extremely overpowering. It tastes completely one dimensional and unbalanced. It's honestly one of the worst recipes I've ever wasted my time, money and effort on. I spent $14 on beef to end up with an embarrassing failure of a Sunday dinner. I really suggest avoiding this recipe. I'm sure there are properly seasoned ones out there, but this one doesn't belong in that category."
"The flavor was good and and the leftover stew did great after being frozen and reheated."
"This recipe was just OK; there are better recipes out there so I won't be making this again."
"Our family as a whole liked this. I put the stew over some stiff mashed potatoes and the starch was a great contrast to the stew liquid. I have never used canned fire-roasted tomatoes and I'm on the fence about them after eating this stew. I might just prefer regular canned tomatoes without the smokiness added. I don't know why a reviewer thought it was "bland"--I thought the flavor was quite strong! It's good enough to make again. The beef was certainly tender."
"My kids didn't like this. Canned tomato flavor was too strong."
"This was a very bland dish...I could not find the paprika listed, so had to use the regular. Thought it would be spicier with 2 Tbsp. of it though."
"Wow! What a wonderful, flavorful dish! In true Hungarian style, I added one half cup sour cream before serving. Delicious!"
"Easy to prepare and had great flavor, my family loved it!!"
