I ate goulash yesterday at my mom's, she makes the best beef goulash and this is her's recipe. I said: "Mom, I'll dedicate this recipe to you tomorrow". She combined it with rice roasted in oven.



  • 600 g beef without bones
  • 300 g onions
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 70 ml red wine
  • 1 liter of water
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt, vegetable seasoning

  1. Cut meat in smaller pieces and put to fry in a pot with  a little oil.
  2. Add 1 finely chopped onion and fry just to soften. Stir and fry together for a few minutes to avoid burning.
  3. Then add the chopped carrot, garlic, peeled and chopped tomato, pepper, bay leaf, paprika, salt and seasoning and mix.
  4. Add the wine and water, cover the pot with a lid and let it boil on low heat for 2-3 hours until meat is soft. In the end, add 1 tbs of flour dissolved in a small cup of water to get a thick sauce.
  5. Serve goulash warm with mashed potatoes or rice. It's also good combined with pasta, you just need to cut meat in smaller pieces.
