GUŠCIJI PAPRIKAŠ Guščji paprikaš is a traditional Croatian stew originating from Slavonija and Baranja region, and it is especially popular in the city of Županja. The stew is made with goose meat, onions, fat, water, carrots, parsley, celery, and paprika powder.
Near the end of cooking, small noodles made with eggs, flour, and salt are added to the pot and cooked until they float up to the surface. The dish is quite old, originating from the times when the field workers went out to harvest. For breakfast, they would eat various cold cuts and drink šljivovica, while guščji paprikaš was reserved for lunch, prepared in large amounts over an open flame.
