A Hungarian-style casserole made with beef flavoured with paprika. The dish, as we know it would be unrecognisable in Hungary - as the name means 'cowboy'. A dish of this type would be called 'Pirkilt' if it had no soured cream, and 'Paprikas' if some had been added. Paprika, itself, didn't arrive in Hungary until about 1820, when it started to be preferred to more traditional flavourings - such as black pepper and ginger. See our Recipe Section
