How to Make HUNGARIAN MEATBALL STEW

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, beef, egg, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Mix well and form into 1-1/2-inch meatballs.
  • 2In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs in batches and cook, turning often, until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. of the oil in the skillet and add the carrots, onion and celery. Cook, stirring constantly, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping up any browned bits. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the reserved meatballs and caraway seeds. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • 4Serve with buttered noodles.
