Pulyka Porkolt (Hungarian Turkey Stew)

This is one of my favorite Hungarian dish. In honesty, I love Hungarian dishes especially the sweets haha I think one of the reasons my husband loves me (lol) is that I do not have any complaints to anything Hungarian πŸ˜› I just love food too much πŸ˜› Well except juhturo, which is sheep milk based cottage cheese. I cannot really stomach it πŸ˜› Tastes too weird to my liking whenever it comes to milk from goat/sheep hahaha

In Hungary, this dish is known as Porkolt Pulyka (pulyka porkolt) and it is super simple to make yet delicious. The Hungarians would serve it with nokedli (egg based homemade dumpling) or egg based pasta.

This time I served ours with macaroni πŸ˜› Lazy cook here ladies and gentlemen πŸ˜›

1/2 of 1 big red onion, chopped finely

400 g of turkey breast, no skin, no bones, cubed

water as needed

1 tbsp paprika powder

2 tbsp margarine (you can use lard, shortening, butter, oil)

salt to taste

nokedli, pasta, or rice

sour cream as needed, for topping

Heat margarine, saute onion until soften, add in paprika powder, stir fast

Add in turkey breast, stir to coat, then pour 1/4 cup water and sprinkle salt, stir

Cover, simmer in low-medium heat for an hour or so. Each time checking, add a little water and stir.

Top with a dollop of sour cream and serve with nokedli (traditional pasta) or bread or macaroni

Enjoy!
