Veal 'Porkolt'


  • Heat 2 tbsp lard in a heavy-bottomed pan and brown the seasoned veal all over. Remove.
  • Melt a little more lard in the pan, if needed, and gently sauté the onions, garlic and capsicum until tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the paprika, tomato paste and caraway seeds. Mix well to toast.
  • Then add 1 heaped cup stock with a little ground pepper and a decent amount of salt. Return the veal with any juices and toss well. Turn the heat right down and gently simmer for 30-45 mins until the meat is very tender, adding more stock if needed and stirring now and again.
  • Combine the sour cream and flour.
  • When the veal is ready, remove from the heat, add the sour cream mixture and mix in well.
  • Serve on a bed of buttered noodles or pasta (eg. fettuccini) in individual bowls with a sprinkling of parsley on top.
