Goulash

Hello,

Goulash is a typical recipe from Hungary, and it is really a masterpiece. At least here hungarian gastronomy does not have a powerful marketing as other gastronomies, but if there are more recipes like this Goulash, it will sure worth to take a lookt to it.

Ingredients (for 2 pople):

  • ½ kg beef
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Sweet paprika
  • 1 red pepper
  • Flour

Start removing the fat from beef, choose a beef with a minimum thickness of 2 cms, cut the beef in cubes of about 4 or 5 cms. Add a bit of salt and ground pepper on the beef. In a dish put a bit of flour put the pieces of beef on it and then remove the excess.

Cut the onion onto stripes, and then loosely cut the stripes, don’t worry we don’t need it to be chopped. Chop 3 garlic cloves. Grate 2 tomatoes, in order to grate them easily cut in half and then just grate until it remains only the skin. Lastly cut a red pepper onto stripes, then the stripes on half.

Add about 1 cm of olive oil in a pan. When oil is hot add beef, and stir it. Keep cooking until it gets a golden look. Reserve the beef. Then add the onion in the same oil and add a bit of salt. Stir it and cook until it gets a golden colour, then remove the excess of oil and add like 2 sweet paprika tablespoons, chopped garlic  and the grated tomatoes. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Then add water and wait until water is hot. You need water to be hot if you want a tender beef, otherwise it will stay tough

In a pot add previosly cook beef, the red pepper and the pan content. Mix it well and cover the pot with a lid. Cook with low fire for about one hour and half and 2 hours, until the sauce becomes dense. Be sure to have enough bread when eating this delicious recipe.

Baked beef steak with potatoes and green mojo sauce

Hi,

This is a complete recipe: meat, potatoes and green mojo sauce (a sauce from the Canary Islands). Be aware if you like undercooked meat, because in this recipe the meat will become well, well and once again well done. It’s really great the taste of potatoes cooked on the oven, and impregnated with the juices and fat drop from the beef steak, really delicious with or without the green mojo sauce.

Ingredients (1 person):

  • 1 beef steak
  • 2 small potatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Parsley
  • Coriander
  • Black peppercorns

Clean the potatoes and then cut them into slices, there is no need to peel them. Place the beef steak in the center of an oven tray. Place the potatoes around the beef steak. On this way potatoes will absorve juices and fat drop from the steak. Add salt to potatoes and cook in the oven at 350º F for one hour.

To prepare the green mojo sauce add to a mortar 3 garlic cloves, parsley, some black peppercorns, coriander and rock salt. Grind with the pestle. Add olive oil and mix it again. Add more or less oil depending if you prefer the sauce more liquid or dense.

Turn the beef steak every 10 or 15 minutes. The first time you turn it, add rock salt in the other side of the steak.
