A Traditional Hungarian Family Recipe To Share With You

Staff Photo

This is a special recipe to me because it has been in my family for decades. My mom has made it ever since I was a child and her mom (my Oma) made it for her when she was a child. If you did not know, my mother is from Germany; however, this recipe is Hungarian. You may be familiar with this delicious meal called goulash. Goulash is a beef stew/gravy which can either be poured over rice or noodles. There are a couple ingredients in the dish that makes it extra special and unique. This recipe is quite simple- please give it a try. It cooks best in a dutch oven or pressure cooker.

Here is what you will need:
1 lb lean cubed beef
4 slices thick bacon
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
1small red bell pepper
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 beef bouillon cube
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1 Tbsp flour
Salt & pepper

Chop onion and saute for about 8 minutes until translucent.
Add minced garlic and saute together for 2 minutes.
Season cubed beef with salt and pepper and toss with 1 Tbsp flour, add to pot.
Cook the meat on med-high heat until the meat is browned with a nice crust.
Chop the slices of bacon and add to the pot with cubed meat.
Pour 1/4 cup of water into the pot and scrape the bits of flavor off of the bottom of the pan.
Add the 2 Tbsp tomato paste, beef bouillon cube and diced red bell pepper.
Pour water in the pot until it reaches right above the meat.
Add 1 1/2 tsp paprika and 1/2 tsp caraway seeds.
Let the ingredients come to a boil and then simmer for about an hour.
Cook the rice or noodles according to package instructions.
Season the goulash with salt & pepper to taste.

I know you will love this recipe! Bon appetite!
