Saucy Beef Goulash


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large sweet onions sliced thin
  • 2 pounds stewing beef cubes – make sure they are small pieces
  • 16 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons hot paprika*
  • 2-3 cups beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 ounces sour cream

*Use 1 tablespoon crushed red peppers and 3 tablespoons regular paprika if you can’t find the hot paprika.

Preparation Method:

  1. In a large saucepan heat the olive oil and sauté the onions until they are soft and browning; about 20 minutes.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until water from them is reduced
  3. Turn heat higher and add beef, stirring often until browned.
  4. Add salt, flour, paprika and mix well.
  5. Add 2 cups beef broth and mix well – if the sauce looks too thick add more broth.
  6. Reduce heat and simmer covered until the beef is tender about 2-3 hours.
  7. Add sour cream and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  8. Taste to make sure you have enough seasoning before you serve.

We like to eat our goulash with either rice or rotini pasta twists and sweet peas * Add extra crushed red peppers if you like it HOT!
