Expert Tips

  • Buttered noodles make a lovely accompaniment to this dish. If you want to explore a more authentic side dish, try spaetzle, a small dumpling that can often be found in a grocery store’s frozen food section.
  • Hungarian paprika comes in two forms, sweet and hot. Sweet is the typical paprika you can find in most pantry shelves. Hot can be purchased at most grocery stores and can be used in place of the cayenne in this recipe, in addition to the sweet paprika.
