Beef Goulash

Winter is here and this hearty meal will surely help those chilly nights! Beef goulash is a cozy, rustic stew filled with chunks of tender beef, savory vegetables, and fragrant spices such as paprika, ground caraway seeds and bay leaf. What a great foot-stomping feast from Hungary to stop you feeling hungry.



  • 1 lb beef chuck or lamb
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 25g flour
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 apple, peeled and grated
  • l litre homemade beef stock
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 3 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 pinches of black pepper
  • 5 tbsp olive oil



  1. In a large bowl, season the beef with salt and pepper. Sprinkle 2 tablespoon of flour and toss it to coat.
  2. Preheat an Avacraft Everyday Pan to medium heat. Once the pan is preheated, drizzle some of the olive oil and let it heat for about 15 seconds. Add the beef gradually and cook until golden brown on all sides. Once done, transfer the meat to the wire rack and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, saute the onion and carrots until softened and add paprika and bay leaves. Add in the garlic then stir in the tomato paste and curry powder to incorporate. Sprinkle in the remaining flour and stir to combine, then stir in the beef stock/broth, followed by the chopped tomatoes and grated apples.
  4. Return the browned beef back into the pan, stir to combine, and bring everything to an extreme simmer. Then, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover partly with a lid and cook until the beef is tender for about 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. Once done, transfer the finished product into a clean large clean bowl and always serve hot.
