Please remember several things to get the best results when cooking the Hungarian lamb paprikash recipe or any other paprikash type.

First, use just quality meat, such as spring lamb meat in this case, as many times you can. The meat has to be cut correctly, respectively you need to use medium-sized meat chunks. If the meat pieces are too large, there are good chances that near the bone the meat to be raw, while outside is too soft.

Another important thing when you are going to use the Hungarian lamb paprikash recipe is to not pour water excessively.
