In Transylvania, we stayed for a few days in Băile Tuşnad (Tusnádfürdő) which is a town in Harghita County, Romania. There are many Hungarians living in the Székely Land, an ethno-cultural region in eastern Transylvania. The owner of the accommodation recommended us to an authentic Székely restaurant which serves the best beef stew I've ever tasted. Székely Marhapörkölt includes pork knuckle simply tastes delicious. It is the aromatic addition and the tenderness of the beef just makes it so delectable! Besides, the sour cream that topped the dish was so creamy and just makes it tasted so good.
Following is a video recipe for the Székely Marhapörkölt as well as the galuska or nokedli as we called it here in Hungary.
