A great dish for those long rainy autumn days. Here’s a nice beef goulash recipe you absolutely must try!
Boil the carrot, one whole fresh tomato, 1/2 zucchini for approximately 5 minutes, remove from heat, drain and set aside. Heat olive oil, add chopped onions and garlic and saute until tender. Add the beef cubes and brown over high heat for 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, chopped bell pepper and tomatoes. Add salt, pepper, sugar and basil, stir and cook for another 10 minutes. Now add the tomato sauce and bay leaf. Simmer slowly and after 10 minutes add 2 cups water. Meanwhile transfer the cooked carrots, tomato and zucchini into a blender. Add 1 cup water and blend until smooth. After you simmered the goulash slowly for 20 minutes, add the blended ingredients and cook on for at least 30 minutes. Add a little water occasionally if it evaporates, but don’t exaggerate. Serve hot, with fresh bread or macaroni. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
