Beef Goulash Recipe #SundaySupper

Feeling the need to celebrate Oktoberfest? We did! My husband, daughter and I recently headed out to a German restaurant for a good old fashioned Oktoberfest. We enjoyed German beer, pretzels, sausages, dancing the Chicken Dance and singing Roll Out the Barrel with our tablemates.

Oktoberfest

When it came time to order our entrees, I was torn between the Jägerschnitzel mit unserer speziellen Pilzsoße und Spätzle and Paprikagulasch mit Spätzle und Rotkohl. In plain English that would be breaded pork cutlet vs. cubed tender beef in a spicy paprika sauce (also known as Beef Goulash). That night I decided on the pork cutlets, and I have been craving the beef goulash ever since. As soon as I found the time, I made up this batch of Easy Beef Goulash. I am so glad that I did.

Not only does this Beef Goulash taste yummy, it fills the house with the most amazing aroma while it cooks. Like all stews, you put this together and then let it simmer. While it is easy to put together, this Beef Goulash does take time. While I cooked in on the stove, it would be equally easy to combine into a slow cooker.

What makes this Beef Goulash so yummy is the mixture of the seasonings. Seriously – so many flavors! Just the scent of crushing the caraway seeds with my mortar and pestle had me looking forward to this dinner.

This recipe is perfect for cooler nights and pairs beautifully with a nice German beer – which of course is what Oktoberfest is all about!

    A short question, why use chicken broth instead of beef broth? We are cooking a beef dish?
    Also do you use Hungarian paprika ?
    Thank you, Marjory

    1. I’m sure beef broth would work as well. Beef broth would give it a richer, deeper beef flavoring. The chicken broth adds a lighter flavor dimension. I used plain paprika because that is what I keep on hand.
