Beef Goulash 5 0 5 3
  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 8 hrs
  • 15 mins

    8 hrs

    8 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: 4 - 6 people


500g braising steak

500g new potatoes, halved

1 tbsp sunflower oil

3 onions cut into wedges

3 large garlic cloves, crushed

2 tsp hot smoked paprika

1 tbsp paprika

2 tsp spicy chipotle chilli paste (optional)

1 beef stock pot

200ml water

250ml red wine

500g carton of passata

3 tbsp tomato puree

2 bay leaves

2 red and 1 green pepper cut into chunks

Chopped parsley

Half fat crème fraiche dolloped on top to serve


1Heat the oil in a large pan and add the steak, sprinkle over the paprika and brown for a few minutes then transfer to sc.

2Add onions to the pan with a large splash of the red wine to loosen any paprika bits and add the chipotle paste if using, saut for a few minutes then add to the sc (I then swish some more red wine round the pan for a minute or two then add this to the sc too).

3Add all the other ingredients to the sc except the pepper chunks and parsley.

4Cook on low for 6 or 7 hrs then add the pepper chunks and cook for a further 1 hour.

5Add the fresh chopped parsley just before serving.


7** Alternative - if you do not wish to use potatoes (I add them to make it a one pot meal) then add 1kg of beef instead of 500g.

This was nice, tasty and easy. I cooked it on high for 4 hours instead and used rump steak also ?

I made this dish last night for me and hubby. I had enough left for me tonight (and tomorrow night)which is a bonus as he left on a Business trip today. It was totally amazing last night, but even better tonight. I love it and it will be a favourite over winter. The only thing I changed was the cut of meat….I used Rump Steak. Thanks Katy Kat for the awesome recipe 🙂
