A Hungarian stew tastes extra delicious on bleak, cold January days. The paprika in this stew gives you a warm and satisfied feeling. That is nice coming home to!

Fry one chopped red onion soft and light brown in olive oil.

Stir 2 tablespoons of paprika powder into the fried onion.

Stir in the pork cubes as well, fry them lightly.

Cover the meat in boiled water, stir in tomato puree then let it stew for 1 hour.

Add after 1 hour the chopped peppers, onions and tomatoes.

Season the stew with freshly ground black pepper, sea salt and parsley.

Stir the cornflower with the 2 tablespoons of water then stir it into the sauce.

Bring the sauce to the boil again then let it thicken to half the volume in +/- 20 minutes.

Ladle the stew into generous bowls, sprinkle on parsley and serve with rustic bread.

For a change you can also serve the Hungarian Stew with mashed potatoes or rice, but with bread you can easily mop up all the tasty sauce.
TIP! Thin cucumber slices seasoned with sea salt & freshly ground pepper, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice give a fresh accent to the stew.
