G is for Goulash

There are hundreds of goulash recipes out there - this one caught my eye as I had the ingredients to hand and it was a healthy option.

1lb diced lean braising steak I bought £6 worth)
1 large onion (sliced) - I used 3
2 red peppers (sliced)
1/2 pint beef stock
1 clove garlic (crushed)
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 can chopped tomatoes
2 tsp paprika I added more!
salt and pepper

Basically I just put everything into the casserole dish and cooked it all day! Will give our opinion after supper. I must admit this is the type of cooking I enjoy - the slow way, everything in at once. I added some left over mushrooms, tomatoes and peas from last night's dinner and I will serve with rice - and I have some sprouts I will have with mine. Jon isn't a fan of sprouts!

This type of food is an excellent comfort food and so appropriate for such a bad week here in the Nesbitt household. I will explain another day.

  1. Did you brown the meat first ? or just add it all and cook ?
    I hope your bad week is better now.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. AP - no I didn't brown the meat first - just flung it all in the casserole. The week is ebbing by - we are quite sad, but getting through it. I'll write about it tomorrow xxxx

  2. I'm sorry to hear your week's not been a good one. Hope things are a better soon. Your goulash recipe looks great. So easy too. I've got some braising steak in the fridge that I've just defrosted so I might try it this week.

  3. Love all day cooked casseroles and this sounds wonderful.
    So sorry for your sadness Denise.

  4. Yum. I just bought some chicken and beef for stew that I'll be cooking up real slow. This looks like real good comfort food...

  5. This sounds like my type of comfort cooking - I hope things are better for you as time passes.

  6. You need to move closer; I'd be at your house all the time!

  7. First time I ever heard of "goulash" was as a child when my Mom said she was making Hungarian Goulash. I asked her what that was and she told me it was a stew. :D

  11. The goulash looks yummy, I too love to make dishes that "marinate" all day. We had pot roast yesterday I cooked in my crockpot all day and it was so tender - very tasty.

  12. I love Goulash it's a well known plate in Germany !
