Traditional Goulash Recipe

Traditional Goulash


  • 0.75 kg steer meat (or "goulash" meat)
  • 0.75 kg onions
  • paprika (1 teaspoon)
  • caraway (1 teaspoon)
  • vinegar (1 1/2 (1 teaspoon)
  • salt


How to make Traditional Goulash

Rule of thumb is using as much onions as you have meat. Regarding the meat - invest some time to remove the sinews - its worth the effort.

Roast the onions golden, than add paprica and caraway. Add the meat an roast the meat from all sides. After about 3-5 minutes roasting add some water so all of the meat is covered.

Now simmer at around 1-1/2 hours depending on the quality of your meat. Near finishing time add the vinegar and simmer for another 5-10 minutes.

Best Served with salt potatoes or buns.

Also a beer (in a separate glass to drink) should be added ☺
