So this version is made by me today :)

Hungarian Lecsó is a thick vegetable stew which consist mainly of Hungarian peppers and tomato, onion, lard, salt, sugar and ground paprika.

Steps:
1. Heat the lard (I prefer smoked szalonna) in a large pot over medium-high flame.
2. Add the onions and sauté until translucent and starting to brown.
3. Add the garlic and sauté for another 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Remove from heat and stir in the paprika until well blended.
5. Reduce heat to medium-low and return the pot to the flame.
6. Stir in the peppers, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer until the peppers are cooked through and soft.

*Do not add water as the moisture from the fresh tomatoes and paprika will create the best texture. Adjust seasoning such as salt and pepper powder and serve.

I have made this many times, my husband Zsolt loves the szalonna (bacon) be served separately like this:-

but if you want to make a healthy weight-loss version of this stew, use olive oil and just a few drips.

Enjoy!
