Hungarian Goulash - Kinda
Why I Love This Recipe
n a desperate search for something to do with my ground beef, and a limited pantry (needed to make a trip to the store and didnt feel like it yet....I'll do it tomorrow, ya know?) I came across a Hungarian Goulash recipe in one of my Betty Crocker Cookbooks. I think there are as many variations of this recipe as there are for meatloaf. Anyway....I made a few slight changes to accommodate what I had available and here's what I came up with.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 tablespoon oil
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup beef broth
1 tablespoons paprika
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/2 tsp caraway seed
1/2 tsp pepper (pr to taste)
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 cups frozen mixed veggies
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained plus a little water to rinse out the rest of the tomato stuff
1/4 cup cold water
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Cook beef and onion in oil until beef is brown. Drain if necessary.
Stir in remaining ingredients except water and flour. Heat to a boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until veggies are done and flavors have blended, about 30 mins or longer, stirring occasionally.
In tightly covered container, shake water and flour until mixed; gradually stir into beef mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 min.
Serve over noodles or rice...hmm...or even mashed potatoes for a hungarian type of shepherds pie. enjoy!!!
