Video: Hungarian Recipe Of The Week – Beef Stew With Red Wine & Dumplings
This video introduces you to a classic local dish, one said to be, "A masterpiece of Hungarian cuisine, and also a star of the outdoor cooking-in-a-cauldron season".

Ingredients :

For the stew:

• 1.5 kg beef shoulder
• 5 heads of large onions
• 2-3 tomatoes
• 1-2 peppers
• 1 clove garlic
• sweet paprika powder
• dry red wine
• salt and pepper

For the dumplings:

• 0.5 kg of fine flour or half/half of strudel flour and fine flour
• 3-4 whole eggs
• 1-2 dl of water
• salt


1. As first step, make the batter of the dumplings. This is important because this way the dough can rest and when we cook it, it will have a perfect consistency thanks to the beautifully formed gluten structure. Once we’re done with the dough, let’s start with the base of the stew.

2. Chop the onions and sweat them in oil or fat. Then add the tomatoes and peppers, and cook them for 3 minutes on medium heat.

3. Once the base is nicely put together, season it with salt, pepper and sweet paprika powder. Give it a stir, add the beef, and finally add the garlic and the wine. Cover and cook until soft.

4. Once the stew is already in the finish line, bring some previously salted water to boil and cook the dumplings for three minutes, until ready.
