Lescó

Lescó is a Hungarian stew. The main ingredients are:

  • Bacon (smoked preferable)
  • Sausage (kielbasa or other high quality)
  • Tomatoes (beefsteak, heirloom, or similar)
  • Hot pepper (Hungarian wax pepper preferably, banana pepper if you cannot find wax pepper)
  • Onion, white, or yellow
  • S&P
  1. Render cubed bacon in a stew pot on medium heat. Add sliced sausage if using raw, or wait until you add tomatoes if smoked
  2. Chop onion then add to pot, let soften a little
  3. Slice peppers, then add, cook while you slice tomatoes
  4. Add tomatoes and smoked sausage if using
  5. Cook until tomatoes are stewed and season with S&P

If you have any memories about a variation in your Hungarian Lescó please let me know. I found ingredients to be the same from “Hungary Today”, and multiple websites in Hungarian.
