Goulash is a traditional soup made with meat, stock and vegetables and primarily seasoned with paprika. Today it is more commonly served as a stew by thickening the sauce and is popular across central and eastern Europe.

  2. dice the onion, pepper and carrots and crush the garlic
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan
  4. Brown the beef in hand-sized batches in the hot pan, topping up the oil if necesary
  5. Set the browned meat aside
  6. Add in the remaining olive oil. Add in the onion, garlic, green pepper and red pepper to the pan and fry for around 5 minutes
  7. Return the beef to the pan with the tomato purée, paprika, caraway, cayenne, bay leaf, and oregano. Stir in well and cook for 2-3 minutes
  8. Add in the carrots, tomatoes, wine, zest and beef stock

Notes

If you want the sauce a little thicker you can stir in a little flour (most recipes suggest flouring the beef before frying it but I find this burns to the pan). Alternatively make and stir in a bit of mash potato
