"Unfortunately americans mix up Gulash (Gulyas) with Parikas. This recipe is closer to the later. Authentic Gulyas is made as a soup, with meat, carrots, onions, parsley and small dough dupmplings call..." See moreed "csipetke". Of course paprika is one of the most important ingredients. Some variations are present throughout the country. Paprikas is made with onions, tomatoe, peppers, garlic, paprika and meat. You can cook potaoesin with the meat, or cook dumplings or pasta to go with it. Some people do use sour cream to make it more creamy, and if cooking with hot paprika,it also cuts the heat. Just thought you neened to know."
"This is just like my Hungarian-born Oma would make...except that she used Chicken. I pretty much followed this recipe, using chicken leg quarters. One thing, however...when she explained it to me, ..." See more she said that after the onions are soft, take the pan off the heat and let it cool before adding the paprika. If you put the paprika right into the hot butter/onions, it will turn bitter."
