Hungarian Goulash


Recommended Posts

One of my go to soul food recipes is traditional Hungarian goulash, it's simple to make but requires a bit of patience.


4 large onions chopped

750g lean beef, shin meat is best but any stewing steak will do

2 cloves crushed garlic

2 tablespoons of sweet paprika, Hungarian if you can get it

1 can of whole peeled tomatoes chopped

1 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper

1 teaspoon of ground coriander

1 bay leaf


in a large frying pan caramelise the onions over a low heat until dark brown, this should take about 35-40 mins, be careful not to burn them.

add them to the slow cooker.

Dice the beef and brown in the same frying pan, when the beef is browned add the paprika, coriander and garlic and cook for a further 5 mins stirring often, add to the slow cooker with all the remaining ingredients and add water to just cover the meat.

Slow cook for 6 hrs minimum

serve with rye or dark bread or just have it on toast.

it's actually better the next day.
