Hungarian Goulash

This is a favorite recipe from my childhood – oh, and wait – and my adulthood!

You can make this in a Dutch Oven, or my preference, in a slow cooker. That way I can smell it all day. Enjoy!

Step 1



2 lbs. stewing beef, cut into cubes

1 cup sliced onion

3/4 cup ketchup

1 tsp cider vinegar

3 tsp paprika

1 tsp dry mustard, or a shot of yellow

3 tbs olive oil

2 tbs garlic, or 2 cloves smashed

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp brown sugar

2 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups water


Step 2 - Sear

Step 3 - Simmer


Brown beef, onions and garlic in the olive oil. Transfer to a slow cooker and add remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6 hours. In a Dutch oven on the stove cover and cook for 2 1/2 hours.

Thicken with 2 tbs of flour, whisking to avoid lumps.

















































Many thanks, many happy and sweet memories of the hands and heart of my Mom, Alice Garretson – who made this over the years.

Thank you, Mom! I love you so much…
