Goulash Esterházy

Time: more than 1 hour
Category: Main dishes
Complexity: high

Ingredients:

serves 4

650 g beef stew meat (i.e. shin of beef)
250 g onions
20 g paprika powder
1 splash of vinegar
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp majoram
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp tomato paste
200 g root vegetables
2-3 tbsp capers
lard
salt

Preparation:

 

Cut beef into small to medium-sized cubes. Finely chop the onions and roast them in lard until golden yellow. Season with paprika powder, fry briefly and immediately wipe with 50 ml of water and vinegar.

Stew for a short time, add the meat cubes, season with a little salt, chopped cumin and marjoram as well as a small chopped garlic clove. Stir in the tomato paste and let it stew in its own juice.

Add a little more water, but the meat should not boil, only stew, so that the goulash contains a nice color. As soon as the meat has softened, add enough water to cover the meat and cook slowly for about 10 minutes.

Cut julienne - into long thin strips - the root vegetables (carrots as well as parsley root), lightly fry and stew covered in a little liquid. Stir together with capers under the goulash. If necessary, add some seasoning and serve with salted cooked potatoes.
