Traditional Hungarian Goulash

Beautiful Budapest - Photo by me ;) 

I went to Budapest in April, what a beautiful place! I fell in love with the city. So beautiful, so much history going on, and the fooooooddddd, amazing.
Whist there, a couple of times we had street food, and 2x at least the street food was Goulash, cause imagine if not, that's right?
Also, I brought the spices back home, to make it here.

So here is a traditional recipe for Hungarian Goulash:
For 4 people ( I changed the quantities, and we do hehehe)

400 g shin of beef (or chuck beef)
2 Spanish onions
2 tbsp oil
pinch of salt, pepper, caraway seeds
1 teaspoon paprika {Hungarian spicy, not sweet} or more...
5 cloves of garlic
1 carrot
1 parsnip
¼ celerac
1 bunch of celeriac leaves
500 g of potatoes
1 Capsicum
1 tomato

  1. First prepare the ingredients: Cut the meat into small cubes, finely chop the onion and garlic as well as chop de vegetables. 
  2. Fry the onion in hot oil until it becomes transparent.  Sprinkle with paprika and add a little water.
  3. Add the meat, and salt, pepper, garlic, and caraway seed to taste.
  4. once starts getting brown, add the capsicum and tomato on top, (and probably a tad bit more water). 
  5. Simmer for an hour, and then add the vegetables and potatoes.
  6. As soon as the potatoes are tender the dish is ready to serve.
