Did You Know That?

“In Hungarian cuisine, traditional Gulyásleves (literally ‘goulash soup’), bográcsgulyás,[11] pörkölt, and paprikás were thick stews made by cattle herders and stockmen.[11]
These dishes can be made as soups rather than stews. Garlic, caraway seed, and wine are optional. Except for paprikás, the Hungarian stews do not rely on flour or roux for thickening. Tomato is a modern addition, totally unknown in the original recipe and in the whole Central European food culture until the first half of the 20th century.[citation needed]
Goulash can be prepared from beef, veal,[12] pork, or lamb. Typical cuts include the shank, shin, or shoulder; as a result, goulash derives its thickness from tough, well-exercised muscles rich in collagen, which is converted to gelatin during the cooking process. Meat is cut into chunks, seasoned with salt, and then browned with sliced onions in a pot with oil or lard. Paprika is added, along with water or stock, and the goulash is left to simmer. After cooking a while, garlic, whole or ground caraway seed, or soup vegetables like carrot, parsley root, peppers (green or bell pepper) and celery may be added. Other herbs and spices could also be added, especially cayenne, bay leaf, and thyme.[11]
Diced potatoes may be added, since they provide starch as they cook, which makes the goulash thicker and smoother. However, red peppers and potatoes are post-16th century additions, unknown in the original recipe. A small amount of white wine or wine vinegar may also be added near the end of cooking to round the taste. Goulash may be served with small egg noodles called csipetke.”

➡️ Cooking tips about Hungarian beef goulash recipe 🔎

Goulash is probably the most famous food recipe in Hungary. Its popularity has crossed the borders of the country and today this beef dish has become known almost all over the world.

Besides Hungary, other Eastern European countries such as Slovakia consider goulash as their national food.

Initially, Hungarian goulash was cooked with potatoes, not with dumplings. However, in Hungary are available more beef goulash recipes, depending on the region. Some varieties include sauerkraut, kidney beans, smoked beef, and so on.

Hungarian goulash is actually a thick beef stew cooked in the local style, which involves the use of paprika and a lot of onions.

Hungarian goulash is very tasty and so, by cooking this food, you have the chance to enjoy a really tender beef along with a thick onion sauce made with smoked, spicy, or sweet paprika.

My opinion is that the Hungarian beef goulash is the best when it’s served with flour dumplings. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t like the version with boiled potatoes!

Needless to say, you can eat beef goulash with boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, boiled pasta, and even just with fresh bread – the choice is completely on you!

The taste of authentic Hungarian goulash with dumplings is even more refined if you top the dish with fresh dill and sour cream. Pickles are highly recommended along with this thick beef stew.

The recommended drink to best match the Hungarian beef goulash with dumplings is red wine, dry or half-dry.

Enjoy Hungarian goulash with dumplings!
