Lecso, an hungarian style paprika stew.
(normally its eaten with a special type of sausage, but i used meatballs)


 300 to 500 grams of beef minced meat.

i seasoned it with the following, but u can season it any way you like.

- 2 diced red onions
 - 2 chopped cloves of garlic
 - 1 tablespoon of sugar
 - 3 to 5 spoons of ready mixed meat spices (any bbq seasoned ready mix is okay to choose)
- 1 Egg
 - some salt and fresh grounded black peper.

make small balls of the meat and grill them in batches in a hot wok with some vegetable oil. set aside

 chop up 8 to 12 fresh sweet paprika into bitesize chunks
(also chop a small red peper)
Set all aside.

Chop up 1 big onion and 3 to 5 cloves of garlic.
Stirfry with some vegetable oil.

After a minute or so turn of the heat and sprinkle the onions with Paprika powder.
be sure to mix it well with the onions.


put the fire on high/medium again and add
 2 chopped tomatoes. 1 cube of beef stock (crumble it over the food)  and a big spoon of tomato paste.
Mix and stirfry for about 4 minutes.

Add all the paprika parts, chili peper and a spoon of sugar and mix it well.
 Put the heat on very low now and put a lid over the pan.
