A little over five years ago I was e-mailed a recipe for goulash, I printed it out, and stuck it in a pile of recipes to try. The other day, I pulled it out, looked it over, and decided to give it a try. I modified it a bit and have included the modified recipe below. Many thanks to Leslie & Abbie for the inspirational recipe!


  • 2lbs stew beef
  • 2 onions chopped
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 chopped carrots
  • 1/2 chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water (more as needed)

In large pot brown beef and onions. Add salt, spices, garlic and tomato paste. Add wine, soy sauce and water, scrape the tasty bits off the bottom of the pot. Simmer 2+ hours partially covered, stirring occasionally. Add carrots, green pepper, simmer until tender (1/2 an hour or so more). Serve over egg noodles, potatoes or rice.
