Eastern European dish "Csin Bum"

Has anyone ever heard of an Eastern European dish called something like "Csin Bum" or "Csim Bun"? I used to eat it frequently at the Bucharest Restaurant in Vienna, Austria, which served Romanian, Hungarian, and Balkan dishes, but have never seen it elsewhere, nor in any cookbook.

It is cubes of veal or pork, in a paprika sauce, covered with a fried egg that has a long green pepper sticking up through it. (Very appropriate for a restaurant in Freud's home town!)

Thanks for any hints about what else this might be called or where it might come from. The spelling of the name of the dish, so far as I can remember it, suggests it might be Hungarian.
