Here is the minced Spanish onion and the bell pepper and I chunked up plum tomato. Now to gather my other ingredients.

.Measure into a dish the paprika and caraway into small dishes. This way I don't have to go search for them when you need to add them to the Goulash. It is worth it to go get a fresh can of Hungarian paprika. The caraway seed can be whole or ground. If you have guests that don't like caraway seed then you can buy ground or grind the seeds in a coffee grinder.


I used a Round Roast for this but you could use chuck roast as well. Any cut of meat that could be used as a roast or stew meat. I wouldn't use meat that would be good for a steak.

Cut the meat into 1 -1/2 inch cubes.

Measure out about 6 cups of beef or chicken stock

Saute the vegetables in the oil till soft.


Add the caraway and paprika stir and cook for a minute to release flavors

Add the beef and brown lightly for 2 minutes.

Add the stock and bring to a simmer

Add some tomato paste

Add the Dijon mustard

Optional: Add some red wine. approximately 1/2 cup.

Simmer for 1 1/2 -2 hours till the beef is tender but not falling apart.


You can just top the Goulash with the sour cream or you can blend some in as I did below.

Here I blended in 1/2 cup sour cream to the Goulash. I used the other 1/2 cup to garnish on top.

To safely blend the sour cream in, take a little of the Goulash in a bowl and blend in the sour cream. This gets it up to temperature and then you can blend it into the Goulash without it clabbering.

You can serve the Goulash with dumplings, noodles or Spaetzle.
