Categories     Main Course     Side Dish

Time 30m

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 Tbsp Coconut oil (in place of lard)
1 Onion (large)
2 cloves Garlic
4 Tomatoes (large) (see Notes for types we recommend)
3 Pepper (see Notes for types we recommend)
2 tsp Hungarian sweet paprika powder
1/2 tsp Liquid smoke (optional - if you want to replicate the taste of cooking in a cauldron)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Steps:

  • Peel and chop onion and garlic.
  • Wash and cut tomatoes first into wedges, then cut it half or third. You need to end up with pieces in the size of 1 inch (1-1,5 cm) cubes.
  • Wash and slice peppers. First cut them half, remove the seeds and the stem. Lay it on the cutting board and slice vertical stripes. Now, cut the stripes in half horizontally so you have 2-3 inch long (3-4 cm) stripes. If you use the original wax or banana pepper you can slice them as rings.
  • Heat your stockpot or a Dutch oven to medium heat and add coconut oil.
  • Add chopped onion, stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add chopped garlic, stir and cook for a minute.
  • Add sliced peppers, salt, and black pepper. Stir until combined.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and sweet paprika powder. Stir until combined.
  • Cover it with a lid and cook it on medium heat until it is boiling.
  • Remove lid, stir and cook for 6-8 minutes until the tomatoes are mushy and there are juices. (You can add now the optional liquid smoke if you want). Ready to be served!

HUNGARIAN LECSO - PEPPER, SAUSAGE AND TOMATO STEW



Hungarian Lecso - Pepper, Sausage and Tomato Stew image

Here is an ancient dish which originated in Serbia. Lecso is very versatile and essentially, is a stew of onions, various shaped and sized peppers including hot and yellow banana peppers, tomatoes and paprika. By adding sliced Kolbász, it becomes a main dish. Served as a side dish with any breaded meat; veal or pork is a perfect match. Excellent with scrambled eggs for breakfast! Many people refer to this is the Hungarian Ratatouille.

Categories     Peppers

Time 30m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 16

2 tablespoons fat (bacon) or 2 tablespoons lard (bacon)
3 medium onions
3 red peppers
3 hot white hungarian bell peppers
1 hot banana pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 fresh tomato
1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes (whole)
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1 dash hot Hungarian paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 lb Hungarian sausage (Kolbasz)
1/2 cup water

Steps:

  • METHOD: In a heavy, straight-sided sauté pan or a casserole (like a Dutch Oven), melt three generous tablespoons of delicious lard.
  • Prepare all peppers, core, devein and cut into 4-6 long narrow wedges.
  • Cut onions into ½ moon slices. Place onions and peppers into the lard on high heat. Stir-fry until it becomes like a stew, cooked, but still firm; only about 6-8 minutes - no longer, you want the integrity of the peppers to remain in tact and the bright colours to stay. Then, add all seasonings, stewed tomatoes and paste.
  • Adding the Hungarian Sausage: Take 1 pair of Hungarian Kolbász (Sausage) and slice it on the "diagonal" - the visual effect is important. You can add the slices right into the pepper stew and let it stew together if it's not too dry. Other sausage variations like Debrecen are ideal, but the drier ones, like the Gyulai sausage are exceptionally delicious. Note: if the sausage is too dry - stew beforehand in ½ cup water in a shallow saucepan for 10-15 minutes before adding it to the peppers. (Add both stewing liquid and sausage to the peppers).
  • Let simmer until all flavours are melded; about 4-6 minutes. Warning - when you are stirring, use a wooden slotted spoon so as not to break up the peppers - you are not going for baby food!
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with fluffy white jasmine rice and/or fresh Hungarian white bread. You can jazz it up or play it down. However you use, it you will find it to be very complimentary with a variety of your favourite dishes.

HUNGARIAN LECSO



Hungarian Lecso image

Pronounced LEH-cho, this is a simple but versatile sauce. It's unique flavor is derived from the hot peppers, which vary immensly in intensity of hotness, so use more or less peppers to match your taste. Lesco freezes beautifully and makes an excellent base for soups and stews, delicious on fish, or with pasta and rice with a dollop of sour cream. Adapted from Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favorites.

Top Asked Questions

What is the best way to cook Hungarian lecsó?
As soon as it shrinks a little, add the sausages and the tomatoes as well. Add salt and pepper to taste, and after cooking together the mix for 10 minutes, the basic Hungarian lecsó is ready, which we can soup-up a little by adding rice, eggs, or more sausages. I, for one, vote for eggs.
How to make lecsó?
You can pour beaten eggs over and fry together with the pepper stew, this is my favorite version. You can have it with rice: when you add the peppers to the tomatoes, add some more water, pour uncooked rice in and cook until the rice absorbs the moisture and get tender. You can make your Lecsó with sliced smoked paprika sausage.
Do you use bell peppers in Hungarian lecso?
Adina...te nem vagy Magyar! Lecso can only be made during the summer as the Hungarian wax peppers are only available then....we do NOT use bell peppers or any other peppers in traditional Hungarian lecso and we use only fresh tomatoes and onions. Please do not refer to your recipe as Hungarian lecso when it is not!
Is lecsó an ancient Hungarian meal?
However, lecsó is not an ancient Hungarian meal, people only started making it in the 19 th century, after the European spreading of pepper and tomato that came after the discovery of the New World. In fact, tomatoes were believed to be poisonous until the 19 th century so the vegetable was kept out of the kitchens.
