Borsos tokány (Peppered stew)
1 3/4 lbs beef flank
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 ½ Tbs oil
Salt and pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
¼ cup dry white wine  (optional)
Tomato paste

Cut the beef into strips of ¼ inch thickness, and 2 inches long.

Sauté the onion in the oil until golden. Add the meat and brown on all sides. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the garlic and the wine, then cover with a lid and simmer over a low heat. Pour in a little water if necessary.

Add the tomato paste when the meat is half cooked. Add a little more water if required, and continue cooking until the meat is done. Let the liquid reduce as much as possible.

This dish has a smooth, brown sauce. It goes well with boiled or mashed potatoes, rice, or polenta.
