NavidNavid: This is a basic recipe for a goulash dish. You can alter this recipe by adding your favorite vegetables such as potato or carrot. You can also add herbs such as parsley or thyme to enhance the taste and aroma of the dish.

The main spice in goulash recipe is paprika. My suggestion is to either use Hungarian sweet paprika or Spanish paprika.

We start by frying onion and garlic.

Next we add beef and paprika and fry some more. Finally we have to add beef stock and tomato paste then cook until meat is tender. Serve with some sour cream and fresh lemon juice.


Main Ingredients:

Beef: 1 lb (1/2 kg) cut into cubes
Red onion: 1 medium, chopped
Paprika: 1 tbsp
Olive oil: 2 tbsp
Garlic: 1 clove, minced
Beef stock: 2 cups
Tomato paste: 2 tbsp
Lemon juice: 1 tbsp
Sour cream: 1 tbsp


1. Saute onion with olive oil for 5 minutes or until soft.

2. Add garlic and saute 2 more minutes.

3. Add beef cubes and paprika then fry until brown on all sides (3-5 minutes).

4. Add beef stock and tomato paste. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Cover and simmer for 1 hour on medium heat or until meat is tender. Stir occasionally and add water if it gets too thick.

6.Before removing from the heat, stir in the sour cream and lemon juice.

7.Serve with rice or pasta.
