About this recipe:A is a hearty beef goulash that originates from Bern, Switzerland. It's got plenty of meat, vegetables and potatoes. It tastes even better the next day (even if most of it has been eaten by then...!).
600g diced beef stewing steak
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon beef dripping or olive oil
100g cubetti di pancetta
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 carrots, cut into small pieces
1 small knob of celeriac, cut into small pieces
1 leek, sliced
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 tablespoon tomato purée
500ml beef stock
1 bunch finely chopped parsley
Prep:20min › Cook:2hr20min › Ready in:2hr40min
Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Heat the cooking fat in a pan and sear the beef on all sides (you may have to do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan). Add the bacon, onions, carrots, celeriac and leek and fry for a few minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper, dust with the flour and add the tomato puree. Stir well and pour in half of the stock. Cover and stew for 1 1/2 hours over a low heat.
Meanwhile, peel and dice the potatoes - the same size as the diced beef - and add to the beef with the rest of the stock. Cook for a further 30 minutes and sprinkle the finished goulash with finely chopped parsley.
