Christmas Dinner: a Taste of Hungary



Later today, V-man’s family is coming over for an early Christmas dinner. One of the things we are going to serve them is this goulash. I used my mom’s recipe and added a few things of my own. The result is full and spicy.

For those who would like to give it a try too, the recipe:

  • butter and oil
  • 1.5-kilo beef, chopped into pieces
  • 125 grams bacon, small pieces

Fry the beef and bacon in a bit of butter and oil in a casserole (I use cast iron) until they are slightly brown.

  • 2 onions
  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 3 garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of mild paprika powder
  • 1 tablespoon of smoked paprika powder
  • 2 teaspoons of thyme

Meanwhile chop the onions, peppers, and tomatoes in small cubes and the garlic in tiny pieces. Fry the vegetables in a separate pan and add the spices.

  • 2 stock cubes
  • half a liter of water
  • a glass of red wine

Make a broth using the stock cubes and the water. Add the vegetables to the meat, and gently pour the broth into the iron pan. Then add the wine and stir.

Place a lid on the pan, put it in the oven and let the goulash simmer for four hours, 160ºC.

Season with a bit of

  • soy sauce
  • brown sugar
  • tomato ketchup
  • pepper

Ízletes ételek! Smakelijk eten! 😀 And have a wonderful weekend.
