BELL PEPPER STEW WITH SOUR CREAM - TEJFÖLÖS PAPRIKA FŐZELÉK
With this last summer’s bounty is over. I made nine apple pies yesterday [our friend, Tony will be well pleased] and after this paprika főzelék [stew] I will be looking for bell pepper buys in the store. The peppers should be sautéed, not boiled. Serve it with a dollop of good sour cream and a hunk of sourdough bread. If you have any pork or chicken drippings, dribble a bit on the top. It will only add to the enjoyment of this simple meal. I used Hungarian sweet yellow, but yellow or orange bells would work too. Never use green though. The texture and taste of green peppers will not work for this stew.
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 finely diced onion
4 cups of chopped yellow or orange bell peppers
salt to taste
1 cup water
2 Tbsp flour several sprigs of fresh parsley 14% sour cream
• Place a non-stick fry pan on medium heat.

• Transfer to a pot. • Stir in 2 Tbsp flour.

• When sauce thickens, remove from heat and cover.
• Let the stew rest for a few minutes and serve with sour cream.
