Beef Paprikash

Love paprikash? Give this variation on the classic Hungarian dish a try! Good Hungarian paprika, the flavor superstar of this dish, is hard to come by in the U.S., but smoked paprika is a good substitute. Just cut the amount in half if you make the switch and adjust to taste–the smoked is much stronger in flavor than typical paprika.


  • 4 tsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 lb. top sirloin steak, sliced thin
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • Pepper to taste
  • 4 cups yolk-free egg noodles
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. paprika
  • ¾ cup beef broth
  • 1 cup peas
  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • ½ cup tomatoes, chopped


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté beef and garlic until beef is browned (3-4 minutes). Season with pepper and set aside.
  2. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  3. While noodles cook, heat remaining 2 teaspoons of oil over medium-low heat until hot. Add mushrooms, onions, and paprika and cook until vegetables are tender, adding water if needed to prevent pan from going dry (3-5 minutes).
  4. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Add peas and simmer until peas are tender (2-3 minutes).
  5. Return beef to skillet and stir in sour cream. Cook until heated through. Do not allow to boil.
  6. Serve beef mixture over noodles. Garnish with tomatoes.
