A great idea for those cold night when all you want is a warm tasty stew.
In a heavy pot, heat the oil. Add the onions, cover the pot and cook for 10 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Stir in the paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute, remove contents of pot with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Turn up the heat and brown the beef in the oil left in the pot. Return the onions to the pot with the tomatoes; cover and simmer about 2 hours, until the meat is tender. Serve as is, or remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream. (Do not bring to a boil or the sauce will curdle.) Makes 6 servings.
