A beef 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, cut into thin rounds 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
600 g stewing beef cubes, 3 cm size
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 beef 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. Trim the fat off the meat and cut the beef into 3 cm cubes (if not already done by the butcher).
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over high heat. Sauté the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pot, with the addition of butter and oil as needed. Cook each batch of meat until it is well browned on all sides, about 5 to 6 min, then transfer the cubes to a plate while the next batch browns.
  3. When all the meat is cooked, 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 1 ½ h, 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).

Not a fan of this. Too watery and had a strange taste.

I substituted Elk meat for the beef and it worked great!

Definitely would make again. Next time though, I will add the peppers later as they cooked down to practically nothing. I added sauteed mushrooms to the recipe as well and about 2 tbsp of corn starch for a thicker sauce.

Pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of stews, but this one is appetizing enough that I'll eat it. :)
