Today I will cook from just three ingredients one of the simplest and tastiest recipes in Transylvania, potato stew with smoked sausage. This is an old recipe in Hungarian cuisine and has been eating quite often. This is precisely because it is a cheap and fast recipe.
Print Recipe


  • 2 pounds potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 0.5 pounds smoked sausages
  • 2 pieces onion chopped
  • 100 ml sunflower oil
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 handful parsley chopped


The three ingredients

  • As I said, this recipe is based on three ingredients: potatoes, onions and smoked sausages.
  • We need 2 pounds of potatoes, which I cleaned, peeled off and cut them into cubes.
  • Also I used two medium onions that I cleaned and chopped.
  • And finally 0.5 pounds smoked sausages that I sliced.
  • I used home made sausages, but you can use any kind of chorizo sausages.

Let's start cooking

  • In a large saucepan, I warmed 100 ml of sunflower oil in which I put the onion to fry.
  • I fried the onion until it was soaked and I seasoned with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Over the onions I put the sliced sausages and I let them take three to four minutes to take a dip.
  • After the sausages fried a little, I put a spoonful of sweet paprika.
  • Now we can also put the potatoes in the saucepan.
  • I added a tablespoon of tomato paste and I stir everything to homogenize.
  • Now I was pouring water over the potatoes until everything was covered and boiled for about 15 minutes until potatoes were made.
  • Do not put too much water, because we do not want to become a soup. Just how much to cover the potatoes.
  • Finally, add chopped parsley and the potato stew with smoked sausages is ready.

How to serving?

  • Potato stew is served warm with fresh bread.
  • In our family we also serve pickled cucumbers with the potato stew.
