“This is an old family recipe that was given to my great grandmother by a hungarian friend. It has been modified a lot through the years from the original version but from what I can tell they were all good changes. The most noticable differences from other paprikash recipes I've seen is the tomato juice and pimentos. This in one of my 13 year old daughters all time favorite dishes. Hope you enjoy!”
