Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors


Hungarian Green Beans

by Margaret Buza, 18 Mar 2007

Comment:  This is a dish from Grandma Sophie Schweitzer.  It is sometimes found in Hungarian cookbooks & listed under soups.  We always eat it as a side dish.  Can use a package of frozen green beans.

  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

  • 1 can green beans

  • 1/4 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 2 tablespoons shortening

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 4 tablespoons flour

Heat 2 level tablespoons shortening and add about 4 tablespoons flour, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn.  Let it get real brown. 

Then add the beans that have been cooking and stir constantly. 

Add the paprika, crushed garlic, and the vinegar. 

Let cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. 

Add the sour cream and serve.  When you add the beans, add liquid and all. 

Yield:  6 servings.
