Ingredients

  • * 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • * 700g stewing steak, cut into chunks
  • * 30g plain flour
  • * 1 large Onion, thinly sliced
  • * 2 clove Garlic, finely chopped
  • * 1 green pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • * 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • * 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • * 2 tbsp Paprika
  • * 2 large Tomatoes, diced
  • * 75ml dry White wine
  • * 300ml beef stock, home-made or shop-bought
  • * 2 tbsp flat leaf Parsley, chopped
  • * black pepper
  • * 150ml Soured cream

Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 170C/gas 3.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a casserole dish or heavy-based saucepan.
    3. Sprinkle the steak with the flour and brown well, in batches, in the hot casserole dish. Set the browned meat aside.
    4. Add in the remaining olive oil. Add in the onion, garlic, green pepper and red pepper to the casserole dish and fry until softened, around 5 minutes.
    5. Return the beef to the pan with the tomato puree and paprika. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
    6. Add in the tomatoes, white wine and beef stock. Cover and bake in the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes. Alternatively, cover and cook it on the hob on a gentle heat for about an hour, removing the lid after 45 minutes.
    7. Sprinkle over the parsley and season well with salt and freshly ground pepper. Stir in the soured cream and serve.

Really liked this recipe, but found that the meat was still a little tough using the timings given. An extra half hour in the over sorted it though. Will definitely be cooking this again.

I agree, I cook mine for longer and sometimes in the slow cooker for hours!

Fab recipe, went down a storm at our casual dinner party. Added fresh cream as I went overboard with the hot paprika.

I love this recipe it's fab. I've made it loads of times now- if you use smoked paprika (recommended) use 1/2 tablespoon- 1 tablespoon. If you use normal paprika use the two tablespoons. Also add tinned tomatoes and cook for much much longer. We serve with rice, delish! Even the children love it.

Nice recipe for a basic goulash, thanks! As others have already pointed out, you may want to cook for longer, especially if you are using cheap stewing beef - and if you like your goulash with a zing, either add some chilli or be sure to use hot paprika. I use red wine rather than white - and unless you have a really good beef stock to hand, consider substituting more wine for the stock, as if you use mild paprika and an oxo cube the cheap stock tends to dominate... Flouring the beef is optional - you can cook this dish in a dutch oven on the hob instead of in the oven and reduce the sauce that way instead - and if you omit the flour (and chose your stock with care) then this dish is also gluten free, so long as you serve with GH pasta.
