Oh, someone please remember...

HI there,

I'm looking for a link to a sauce I have made 3 times that I got from this website. Amazingly, though I ALWAYS bookmark recipes I like, I did not bookmark this one. I have searched the internet for hours trying to find it...

It was for some type of Hungarian Paprika Sauce...I found it when I was searching about for stuffed pepper recipes. I've looked through every stuffed pepper recipe post on these boards.

From what I remember, there was Hungarian Paprika, Sour Cream, Onions, I think even peppers in it and then I believe I pureed it? Oh, if anyone remembers what I am talking about or has that link or that thread I would be the happiest Hungarian Paprika Sauce hunting girl on Earth!!

  1. Wow, that sounds awesome. I hope you find it.

    1. I suggest you edit your title and replace it with something about the particular sauce so more people see it. Lots of readers don't click on non-specific titles.

            I was going to edit...but I dont think I can. Is there only a 2 hour window for editing original posts?

              Under your OP click on the "Flag" link, and select "other. In the comment box, ask them to change the title for you.

          2. Here's a long thread on chicken paprikash with several recipes embedded--look through it.


            1. Or try using a recipe search outside of this site

              One found with that technique was this one

                Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely searched the internet all day using every combination of key words i could think of from the original recipe. No success :(

                1. re: MedicNiki

                  Remember, if in chowhound's search, you have to change the date range in the advanced search or you just get the last 12 months.

                  Sometimes if i use google i can find stuff in chowhound easier than chowhound's search.
                  like put something like this in google:
                  chowhound stuffed pepper paprika sour cream

                  i see you found it, nevermind

                2. re: MidwesternerTT

                  I saw that one also...between that one and another one I found I'm going to try and recreate the one I'm thinking of.

                  Thanks again!

                3. Sorry I can't help but once you get it, copy and paste link, recipe or screenshot, then email it to yourself.

                  I don't bother paying online /cloud storage when I've 6 g mail accounts.

                    Is it this thread? Beyond the OP recipe there are a number of other variations.

                      Thanks HillJ...

                      I looked through it. The original recipe I followed was a link from a stuffed pepper thread on these boards. I looked through all of those in addition to searching the interent with keywords I remembered from the original post but I'm not having much success. I'm afraid it's gone into some recipe cemetery! I can even kinda picture the background...it was a pale mustardy/yellowish....sigh, why didn't i save the dang thing GRRRRRR.

                      So today I'm going to try to wing it and recreate it from my vague and foggy memory. I do not expect it will go well since even though I love to cook, I still mostly rely on recipes, or my variations of them. So I may not have something edible. But hopefully I'll still have a kitchen! :)

                        Just one more thought before you give up :) (I feel the frustration searching thru the CH archives too!). Did you try the CHOW only archives? Just in case...
                        ..and do you happen to know what year it would have fallen in?

                        1. re: HillJ

                          Hmmm...awesome suggestion...trying that now..

                          I dont know what year it was posted, but I have looked at it as recently as this year.

                      how about this one?

                      try Googling, Hungarian Stuffed Peppers, with or without a Chowhound tag.

                        Thanks Hill,

                        I saw that one yesterday too...the one I am thinking of was a link to a Hungarian Paprika Sauce that a poster on here recommended to use with stuffed peppers. Ive made it twice I believe and even served it to guests with phenomenal reviews...At this point Ive wasted years of my life searching fro this recipe. Ok, not years...the last two days but still: My eyes are starting to bleed lol.

                        1. re: HillJ

                          Heres a link to kinda what it looked like, and some of the ingredients. But I'm also pretty sure it had 2 tbs of hungarian paprika and sour cream added at the end....


                          1. re: MedicNiki

                            Oh thanks for sharing this link the sauce looks really delicious. When you least expect it you or a fellow hound will stumble upon the right link.

                            I'd take the suggestion to request a change to your subject title so more eyes are on your hunt.

                            1. re: HillJ

                              I found another one, this one is really registering as similar to the original one I had (the sauce part):


                              1. re: MedicNiki

                                Oh man, I love comfort food like this! What's not to love about that recipe :)

                          1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                            They both fit MedicN description; both original thread & link.
                            Good going! I' m saving them too! This got my own curiosity going.

                            1. re: HillJ


                              YAY WOOOOHOOOOOOO, you guys are the bomb.com!!!

                              That's it! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!

                              1. re: MedicNiki

                                Oh I'm so happy for you, MedicN. I've printed out the recipe for myself so thank YOU for sharing the love of a good sauce!

                                ghg, you are the search master (bowing in respect).

                                1. re: HillJ


                                  Def worth...I follow it exactly but double it, mix some in with the pepper stuffing, then pour the rest all over them in the baking dish and bake until done....Oh man, my mouth is watering.

                                  SO GOOD!

                                    But which one is the one you've been searching for??

                              2. This may be what you are looking for. What you described sounded like Paprikas.

                                1 1/2 teaspoons salt
                                1/2 teaspoon black pepper
                                2 tablespoons vegetable oil
                                1 large onion, chopped
                                4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
                                1 1/2 tablespoons paprika (preferably sweet Hungarian)
                                2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
                                1 1/2 cups water
                                1 cup sour cream
