Marha Porkolt



Marha (Beef) Porkolt, is another Hungarian dish which is derived from Goulash. Basically by letting the soup boils and thickens, then you will get Porkolt. And you can use other meat besides beef. It tastes like Indonesian rendang, just less spicy and less spices in it.


  1. Beef, cut in small / bite-sized pieces
  2. 1 onion, diced
  3. 1 tomato diced
  4. 2 tbs of paprika powder
  5. Vegetables of your choice, I had carrots
  6. Bell peppers
  7. Salt
  8. Water
  9. Chili paste, optional


  1. First, heat up some oil in a pot
  2. Add in onion, and stir fry them in the pot for around 1 min
  3. Turn off the stove, and pour in the paprika powder, and stir them, using the dissipating heat to fry the paprika powder so that it won’t be burnt to black
  4. Throw in the beef, and turn back on the stove, fry till the beef starts to cook
  5. Now, throw in the vegetables and bell peppers, and sprinkle some salt on it
  6. Pour water only enough to cover everything in water. You wouldn’t want to have too much water, else you will end up with goulash instead.
  7. Now add in some chili paste, and adjust till you like the spiciness of the porkolt
  8. Boil under medium heat till the soup thickens
  9. Serve with rice !
