A chicken stew with peppers, onions, and potatoes in a tomato-paprika sauce.

Outside its native Hungary, where it is known as «gulyás» and is served as a hearty thick soup, goulash [pr. GOO-lahsh] is a stew made with beef or other meat and vegetables, flavoured with lots of very fresh sweet or spicy Hungarian paprika, giving it a pungent aroma.

Ingredients

2 onions, thinly sliced 400 g
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tomatoes, deseeded and diced 240 g
1 yellow or red sweet peppers, cut into match-like strips 200 g
2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into 3 cm cubes 600 g
4 tsp butter, unsalted 18 g
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 23 mL
4 tsp paprika 12 g
2 1/4 tsp ground cumin 5 g
1 cup chicken broth, or more 250 mL
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes 400 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 1/2 tbsp sour cream [optional] 23 mL

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables : thinly slice the onions, chop the garlic, deseed and dice the tomatoes, and cut the peppers into match-like strips. Cut the chicken into 3 cm cubes.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over high heat. Sauté the meat until it is well browned on all sides, about 8-10 min, then transfer the cubes to a plate.
  3. Lower the heat to low, add the onions, and cook, stirring occasionally until they are well cooked, about 15 min. Return the meat to the pot, add the paprika and cumin, then cook 1 min with stirring. Add the chopped garlic, tomatoes, and peppers, then pour in the broth. Season with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  4. Cook, covered, over very low heat, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender and the sauce has thickened, about 30 min, adding some broth if needed to keep a moist environment.
  5. Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes, then add them to the pot and cook an additional 30 min. Adjust the seasoning.
  6. Serve with a dollop of sour cream (optional).

Excellent recipe! I did add 1 tsp siracha sauce, left out the potatoes and served it with ww large egg noodles. I also did not cook it as long. I like my veg el dente. I just stir fried the chicken till almost done, added the veg, garlic and spices for a min to coat the veg and chicken then added the chicken broth and let it cook 10 min, made the sauce thicker with 1 tsp cornstarch in a bit more chicken broth.

Love the recipe. For our taste, I would put less potato and add mushrooms. But then, we love our mushrooms.
