I have an uncle that lives in budapest Hungary. He sent this over to me so I could have the real way to cook it. Love it! So much better than the American versions I have had. He visited once and made it with this recipe and it is so good. I like to eat it with bread.
Sauté the onion in lard until it's golden brown. Add Hungarian paprika and 2 tsp of water.
Once water boils add beef and stir until well browned. Add some water, cumin and black pepper.
Boil for 50 minutes and add water many times while the meat softens.
Add parsnip, carrot, yellow pepper, paprika, and tomatoes. Cook for another 40 min and add potatoes, salt, green pepper, and garlic. Pour more water to keep soup consistency. Bring to a boil for another 15 min.
MAKE PINCHED NOODLES
Combine all ingredients with enough flour to make a firm dough. Let dough sit for 5 min. Roll dough and pinch off dime sized pieces. Add pinched noodles and boil for a few minutes longer. When noodles float to the surface they are finished.
Serve it with chopped parsley sprinkled on each portion.
