As I said, if in pork shoulder stew with mushrooms and sour cream recipe, I showed you a more complex and creamy stew, this is much simpler and lighter, but just as tasty.

Let’s See the Few Ingredients

We will use a piece of pork tenderloin, about 700 g, which we will cut into cubes. We can also use pork leg or neck, I chose a piece of meat with as little fat as possible.

The other ingredients used will be a medium-sized onion, and sweet red bell pepper, of which I will use only half and two cloves of garlic.

Fry the meat for about 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time, until it gets coloured. In the first part, the meat will be fried, after which it will start to release its own juice.

Put a lid on the pan and let it boil over medium heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally. After about 45 minutes, we took the lid so that the water could evaporate and get a stew with less juice.

I recommend serving as I did, that is with penne pasta, from which I boiled about 500 g for four servings.

To comment on such a delicious dish without taste, it can be quite tricky for me. Our family has never use Paprika for cooking; I have to guess how it tastes like or most likely is for coloring and fragment only. The sweetness from meat and vegetables, since the meat cooking time is not long, it is helpful for chewable, am I right? Eat with pasta, tenderize pork, and boiled sweet juice is an excellent dish, I believe. Too bad, I have no opportunity to try the real recipe. The western cook is fresh, direct, and fast. Thanks for sharing your delicious to me. 

I can buy Paprika in a small bottle only, but I can easily follow your article to try the dish. Then I can know whether my comment is correct or make a few mistakes. Your niche is nice and easy to get trust by users once they have tried your recipe.

Thanks, Stephen, for the appreciation, indeed paprika is a spice specific to Hungarian cuisine and is with salt and pepper almost indispensable in the recipes, and the difference from Spanish paprika is that the Hungarian one is not smoked.

Regards, Timea.
