“This is one of my families favorite dishes. We serve it with spaetzle. One important note on paprika - it is absolutely necessary that you use good, sweet Hungarian paprika for this. You use a lot of it and the quality of the paprika is essential to the end result - you cannot use any old McCormick’s stuff and expect this to taste good. Go outside and discover your closest Eastern European grocer.”
