Moms' Hungarian Goulash image

My mom makes great goulash. Being Hungarian, on my mothers' side, I learned very early how to make goulash. It's a staple in my house during those cold winter months. I've made it with beef, pork, lamb even chicken. Great when you're on a budget. BUT, you have to use Hungarian paprika, it's a whole other flavor! Goulash should be thick and you should be able to taste the paprika! I've seen some recipes and well they aren't authentic.

Time 2h20m

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

3 cups yellow onions
3 cups bell peppers
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups water
4 cups boneless beef cubes
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon flour


  • Which ever type of meat you use, cut into bite size pieces and set aside. Roughly chop your onions and peppers and in large pot add oil, onions, peppers and saute til soft add meat and just brown slightly. Add paprika, cayenne (if using). To this also add your flour and stir until combined. Don't add all 4 cups of water at once! Add enough water to just cover (you should still be able to see the meat - too much water and you'll make soup).
  • Cover and bring to boil. Once this boils, lower heat to med low and let simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. It has to cook slowly to really absorb flavors and the meat must be very soft. Stir occasionally so that the bottom doesn't stick and burn and if you need to add LITTLE bit of water. It has to be thick once it's cooked through.
  • Test your meat for doneness, if it's easily cut with a fork it's good. Season with salt and pepper. You can serve with cooked noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
  • We do the mashed potatoes. And if we have leftover mashed potatoes (I make a lot of mashed potatoes!) I always make my "Potato Fake Out".

Authentic Hungarian Goulash image

Here is a recipe for authentic Hungarian Goulash I learned to make from my grandmother and mother who were from Austria-Hungary. We would NEVER consider tomatoes or green peppers or other spices in Goulash. Slow cooking is the secret and you can never use too much paprika. Note: my grandmother made the biscuits from scratch, but I find the Bisquick ones are easier and tastier.

Hungarian Goulash I image

A spicy way to dress up stew beef. My mom made this when we were kids, and we loved it. It is spicy while not mouth-burning! Can be made with cheaper cuts of beef, and comes out very tender. If it gets too thick, add a little water while it's cooking. Garnish with sour cream.

  • Place beef in a large Ziploc bag. Add flour, plus a dash of salt and pepper. Seal the bag and toss so that the beef chunks are coated in flour.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot (but not smoking), brown the beef on both sides until the chunks turn a rich color (about 8-10 minutes). Don’t stir the beef too much as it’s cooking – you want to allow it to sit on one side and brown before turning it over or stirring it again.
  • Add diced tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, carrots, potatoes (if using), beef broth, paprika, tomato paste and caraway seed. Increase the heat and bring to a boil, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.
  • Once the broth boils, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and allow the stew to simmer until the meat and vegetables are tender (approximately 2 hours). Remove lid during the final 10-15 minutes to allow the broth to thicken, if desired. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
