Tip #1

Paprikash is a Hungarian dish using paprika for flavor rather than a garnish. Although paprika comes from Spain, South America and California, many consider the Hungarian variety to be the best. Hungarian paprika is widely available in supermarkets. Paprika can become bitter during the long, slow cooking, so only 2 teaspoons are added at the beginning of cooking and the rest is added at the very end.
