Offals are generally not a popular dish, although these are the healthiest meats.  This is also known to predators, so they first consume the heart, liver and offals of the killed animal, and only then eat the less worthless meats. Based on this example, offals should not be left out of the meal either.  This time I show a dish that is delicious, typically Hungarian, because, due to its name, it is made with crazy amount of paprika powder, similar to goulash.  However, unlike goulash, this dish is budget-friendly, as a lb of stewing beef costs $ 5.99 (which is otherwise dry and fibrous, so not a top-quality meat), while a lb of chicken hearts and gizzards costs $ 3.99.

The offals, such as the heart and stomach, are usually hard, muscular meats, but can be cooked butter-soft under a lid for 1-2 hours.
The basic taste and juice of the paprikash, whether made from chicken, pork or even beef, is given by the fat, the chopped onion and the finely ground red paprika.

I cooked potatoes as a side dish, although the potatoes are not keto, but of all the other usual side dishes that can be served with stews, such as pasta, nokedli, or rice, the potatoes have the lowest carbohydrate content, and why not eat some of them sometimes?

We eat once a day (OMAD – One Meal A Day) so our daily 50 g carbohydrate frame fits perfectly with a plate of Chicken Heart & Gizzard Paprikash, cooked potato and cabbage salad.
