Beef Goulash

A very filling dish when served with mashed or boiled potatoes and vegetables.


2 level tablespoons plain flour

3 level tablespoons paprika

1 level teaspoon salt

1/2 level teaspoon black pepper

900g diced stewing or braising steak

1 onion, finely chopped

8 rashers rindless, smoked back bacon

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 level teaspoons mixed dried herbs

400g tin chopped tomatoes

300ml water

flat leaf parsley to garnish


Preparation Time: 30 mins     Cooking Time: 2 hours

Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.

Put the flour, paprika, salt and pepper into a large food bag. Add 900g diced steak, twist top of bag and shake to coat the meat.

Cut the bacon into small pieces. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add onion and bacon and fry for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the beef, separating the pieces as you add them to the pan. Stir continuously over a high heat for about 2 minutes until browned to seal the meat.

Add the mixed herbs, chopped tomatoes and water, stir well and bring to the boil.

Transfer to a casserole dish and cook in a preheated oven at 170 C / Gas 3 for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until tender, stirring half way through cooking time.
