Beef Goulash is a great dish to combat those cold winter days. The name originates from the Hungarian word gulyás which means ‘herdsman’ where the stew was prepared by cattle herders and stockmen during their cattle drives. This thick, hearty stew which goes well with mashed potatoes, bread, rice or egg noodles.
There were so many different recipes for Beef Goulash out there, it was tough choosing a truly authentic recipe so I decided to settle with the basics and cultivate it to my tastes, but at the heart of the dish are several main ingredients that can be agreed upon: meat, onions and paprika.
This recipe is enough for 4 big servings but feel free to beef it up more with added vegetables such as potatoes, bell peppers or tomatoes. You can also skip the step of browning the beef to make it easier and avoid oil spatters.
