Reviews for Hungarian Stew
"Takes a while to prepare but it is well worth it. Absolutely awesome"
"I use boneless beef ribs for better flavor."
"Perfect for a nice cold rainy nights dinner. It smells amazing, and is oh so yummy!"
"VERY GOOD FLAVOR AND SO EASY. I MAKE BIG BATCHES FOR CHURCH."
"Low fat also means low taste. We watch our fat intake, but a comfort food dish needs real flavor. Keep these coming,good work."
"To lower fat, use very lean beef and fry in pan sprayed with cooking spray instead of oil; substitute low fat or fat free sour cream for the regular sour cream."
"Could you please give us some low fat recipes . Thanks, JBunton"
