BEEF PAPRIKASH...A FAVORITE SLOW COOKER RECIPE

With fall months upon us, it's the best time ever to start dinner in your slow cooker!
This traditional Hungarian dish is best described as fragrant, full of spice and perfectly balanced by a creamy finish. Hungarian "sweet" paprika is a must-have that can be found in most all grocery stores.


That old September feeling….of summer passing, vacation nearly done, 
obligations gathering, books and football in the air…..
Another fall, another turned page; there was something of jubilee 
in that annual Autumnal beginning, 
as if last year’s mistakes and failures had been wiped clean by summer.
~ Wallace Stegner

    1. Hi Liz! This is a spicy Hungarian dish that is very flavorful and a favorite at our house! You may want to adjust the amount of the seasonings according to your taste, however, it is meant to be a strong savory dish! You can begin with less and add more if you would like to....Enjoy!
