Steak Paprikash

Susan Feliciano


My mother made this - sometimes calling it "Hungarian Goulash."
The paprika was her secret ingredient. She generally used McCormick brand of paprika, but I stock an imported Hungarian brand of sweet paprika that sends this over the top.
This recipe was very popular in the 1960's, and was made in her new electric skillet.
