There are many different ways of making goulash, as it is with every dish. Goulash can be served with potatoes, dumplings, spatzle, or just as a stand-alone dish with bread.
  • 2 lb beef (I used chuck blade steak)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 tbsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tray of mushrooms
  • ½ green bell pepper
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp Hungarian Paprika (that is a must)
  • 2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 16 oz tomato sauce
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • sour cream
  1. In a large pan saute the onion in the olive oil, add 1 tbsp of sugar to caramelize the onion. Then add the caraway seeds, the Hungarian paprika, bay leaves and the tomato sauce.
  2. Add the chicken or beef broth. It's just my personal preference to use chicken broth. Add the cut up beef to the pot and add the salt and pepper. Simmer for about 2 hours. In a skillet cook the mushrooms and bell peppers add the cooked veggies to the pot right before serving. . If you like your soup thick add some diluted cornstarch. And top it off with a tbsp of sour cream.
