04-08 Hungary? Try Goulash!

Hi people! Brini here and this week we have a delicious stew for you…Hungarian goulash! As stews go, it’s very simple – very easy. Here’s how:

You’ll need:

2 lbs stew beef cut into 1” cubes
3 Tbs. flour
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
¼ cup chopped onion
1 bay leaf
2 whole cloves
1 ½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 Tbs. paprika
1½ cups beef stock

Begin by coating the beef with the flour. Heat the oil in a sauce pan or electric skillet over medium heat and add the beef. Cook until brown on all sides, then add the onion. Stir for about 5 minutes until the onion is tender, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend well while bringing to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer. Let cook for 2 to 2½ hours or until fork tender.

Serve over buttered noodles or boiled potatoes.

This dish is just great for the last chilly days of winter. Perfect for warming up after a blustery afternoon outdoors!
