Irma’s Wiener Goulash

August 16, 2008

The secret of good  Wiener goulash is the onion, the more the better 🙂
For meat lover, especially goulash lover, you should try this one.. the smell itself is already overwhelming 😀
This one is my version.

750 kg cubed meat (you can use chicken if necessary)
750-1 kg onions, cubed
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp dry thyme
200 ml red wine
50 gr ghee or butter
zest of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp sweet paprika powder
1/2 tsp hot paprika powder (the amount of paprika powder should be adjusted to your taste)
300 gr tomatoes, peeled, cubed
2-6 cloves garlic, pressed
salt as needed
1-2 tbsp sugar (adjust to your taste)
1 red bell pepper, cubed
2 carrots, cut, cooked separately

Heat up the pot, melt the ghee, add in onions and garlics, cook until fragrant.
Add in the cubed meat, cook until brown.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Cook until the meat is tender the the sauce thickened.
If you use pressure cooker, it takes about 20 minutes to be done.
When it is done, add the vegetables.

Serve it warm with pasta, spätzle or like mine, with rice 🙂
