Sertés Paprikás is a Hungarian stew comprised of pork, paprika, and sour cream. It is traditionally served over Nokedli (Hungarian pasta dumplings- similar to Spaetzle in Germany). If you are unable to find Nokedli or Spaetzle (and don’t want to make your own), serve over egg noodles. This dish is just so much better with homemade pasta. Cheri (from The Watering Mouth) has a video on how to make homemade Nokedli.
Vegeta is a common seasoning used in Eastern European cooking. Ingredients include salt, dehydrated vegetables (carrot, parsnip, onion, celery, parsley), flavor enhancers (MSG), sugar, spices, cornstarch, and riboflavin. It was first created in 1958 and put on the market by Podravka, a Croatian company in 1959. There are a few recipes for homemade Vegeta, but I have not tried any yet. I personally just used Chicken bouillon, because I didn’t want to use the flavor enhancers in Vegeta. If you want to try it with Vegeta, Amazon sells a version without MSG: Vegeta, Gourmet Seasoning, No MSG.

By simmering the meat for an hour, it was the perfect texture for Evan. The egg noodles were a bit small for him and he got tired of picking them up one by one. He decided shoveling them in his mouth was a better alternative. I guess we have a while to work on table manners, ha ha.
