The Best Beef Paprika

This beef paprika is delicious and will be one of your go-to comfort foods. It’s so easy to make and you only need a few simple ingredients. The main ingredient is smoked paprika.  It gives it that deep smoky rich flavor.

You can use any paprika if you don’t have smoked, but if you want the richness and smoky flavor, use smoked paprika. Any bbq sauce can be used, but I like sweet and tangy Kansas City style sauces.
