"This is a traditional Hungarian vegetable and meat dish that has been 'Americanized' into a thick stew. My grandmother used to make this for me. This is the easiest recipe to make, even if you're not a good cook! It has quick preparation time and it is liked by everyone who tries it!"

It is quite a good recipe. I have to protest though; it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the real Hungarian lecsó, which is a completely differnt dish. It has many variations in Hungary, but NO...

A hearty and easy recipe. Try cajun flavored smoked sausage for an extra kick!

Ever have the most perfect recipe come up when using the ingredient search? This is mine... Overall very good - it did need salt and pepper though and a little longer to cook to blend flavors ...

The is-it-or-isn't-it-traditional-Lecso reviews didn't affect my taste buds, as I didn't have anything to compare this recipe too. (I had the ingredients on hand and wanted an easy crock meal fo...

despite the dialog regarding the authenticity of this recipe, it is a good, basic cold weather meal. It is easy and quick to prepare. My only change would be to use a more spicy pasta sauce or s...
