My mom "Betty" has made this dish for eons, and we cooked it together the night after Christmas, when she was visiting. Everyone loved it & my neighbors asked if I could make more. I was skeptical, as the Hungarian dishes I make are all very old-school & take some effort. However, she assured me it was wonderful & not to add or change anything. Betty was so correct! My computer is not letting me add photos at this time, but I will as soon as I can. Delish & EASY!!!

How to Make Betty's slow-cooked beef stew, Hungarian style

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the beef roast into large cubes. (I tossed in some worcestershire sauce when my mom wasn't looking). :)
  2. Add the veggies & beef to a crockpot. Mix the other ingredients except sour cream in a bowl & pour over top.
  3. Add some fresh ground black pepper. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. (We cooked overnight & then turned to warm in the morning until lunch.) The beef will be fork tender.
  4. Add sour cream before serving & heat through on low in crockpot. Serve over potatoes or egg noodles tossed w/ butter, black pepper & fresh parsley. Enjoy!
