Close to my Hungarian grandma's recipe. Served with my grandmas dumplings (kind of like spaetzle). Great recipe.

Very authentic. The only thing I add is 1cup finely sliced sweet red pepper to the onions when saute'ing. Dinner guests loved it with spaetzle.

Excellent recipe! I made it exactly as written and served it with homemade noodles. Delicious and will definitely make this again. Used Sweet Hungarian Paprika.

This went very well. I really like the moist, steam roasting in the oven. I was out of regular sour cream because I made a dill dip with it, so I just used that and I liked what the dill did for it. I served it with some spaetzle.

Delicious dish! I messed up and forgot to add the hot water before baking, however it turned out just fine. Wouldn't change a thing!

This is absolutely delicious, there was a place in Wyandotte Mi called Hungarian Kitchen that everyone in our family loved & ordered from for over 40 years. They closed a few years ago & this recipe is almost - if not - the same as theirs. We have been missing it ever since they closed so thank you for sharing this recipe, I made a batch last night & by family demand I am doing another batch today.....thank you again!!
