Bećar Paprikash

Updated: Jun 5

  • Bećar paprikash or Sataraš comes from Vojvodina, the northern region of Serbia, where I also come from. This is an ideal dish to prepare for breakfast or dinner. It is made from peppers, onions, tomatoes, and eggs. It is the basis. This delicious and healthy dish is prepared quickly. Follow the recipe.

Ingredients: simple, total time: 60 min. 4 serving
  • 2 Tablespoon Olive oil EVO

  • 2 medium onions/ cut on small ribs

  • 3 large red long peppers/ diced

  • 1 large tomato and 2 medium/ peeled and diced

  • 1/4 hot green peppers finely chopped/ or 1/2 teaspoon red-hot crushed pepper/ — optional

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper/ or to taste

  • 2 eggs

  • iron pan

  1. Clean, wash and cut the onion in half. Cut into thin ribs. After that, separate into fine ribs.

  2. Wash the peppers and clean them from the stalks and seeds. Cut them in half, remove the remaining seeds. Cut them into two parts lengthwise. Then cut them into 2.5 cm cubes. Repeat this with the other peppers.

  3. Cut a hot green pepper into 1/4, remove the seeds and chop.

  4. Wash the tomatoes well and peel them. (To make it easier to clean, cut a cross opposite to the stalks, soak them in hot water for a few minutes, then in cold water, and peel them. I didn't do that, I simply washed them under lukewarm water and cleaned them of the skins.

  5. When everything is ready, you can start cooking.


  1. Pour olive oil, add onions. Simmer on moderate heat with occasional stirring for about 3–5 minutes. The onions must soften and become transparent.

  2. Add chopped peppers, stir everything well and cover the pan.

  3. Stew for about 15–20 minutes, stirring occasionally for five minutes. It is important that the pan is always covered. The peppers must release juice and soften.

  4. After that, add chopped tomatoes, stir all components well add pinch of salt and pepper, cover and stir occasionally.

  5. Cook for about 30 minutes. During this time, the tomato must release its juice and combine with the other ingredients.

  6. Add spices, salt and pepper, half a teaspoon each, and stir well.

  7. Cook another 5 minutes, covered. When the vegetables have softened well and the juice has almost disappeared, remove from the fire, immediately add two eggs and quickly mix everything. Return to the heat and stir for about 1 minute. Put out the fire.

  8. Serve warm in shallow plates with a slice of bread.

Buon appetito!
