Hungarian Goulash

Weekends are usually my cooking days, when I prepare food for the week (Saves a lot of money and is healthier:)) I just made Hungarian Goulash and I just love it, so I thought I share it here real quick. It is pretty simple to make and you don’t need so many ingredients. Enjoy!

  • 2 lb. beef chuck
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 onions, white or yellow
  • 2 Tbsp. lard or shortening
  • 2 Tbsp. imported sweet paprika (most important to use real hungarian paprika for ultimate flavor)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 Qt. water
  • 4 peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Cut beef into 1 inch squares, add 1/2 tsp. salt. Chop onions and brown in shortening, add beef and paprika. Let beef simmer in its own juice along with salt and paprika for 1 hr. on low heat. Add water, diced potatoes and remaining salt. Cover and simmer until potatoes are done and meat is tender. Prepare egg dumpling batter:

  • 1 egg
  • 6 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Add flour to unbeaten egg and salt. Mix well. Let stand for 1/2 hour for flour to mellow. Drop by teaspoonful into Goulash. Cover and simmer 5 minutes after dumplings rise to surface.

Serve hot with dollops of sour cream.

Serves 6.
