Deliciously tender beef goulash with paprika - based on the classic. Serve with pasta such as macaroni, penne, bows or any shape you fancy. Please note that the stew will be quite 'soupy' so serve with pasta in the bottom of a deep bowl and ladel over the stew. Adjust paprika levels to taste during cooking.
I used this recipe as a basis but wanted to include a variety of vegetable so reduced the quantity of potato and onion and added celery, parsnip and carrot. I used sweet potato also. I also added dumplings three hours into the cooking time. I didn't use pasta but served the goulash with home made garlic bread. Some might have spotted that I was trying to emulate the legendary dish served by the Dog & Gun in Keswick, and I think I got pretty close, it was delicious. This is real comfort food, perfect for a cold winter evening. My wife loved it too so I'll be serving this up regularly. Many thanks for the inspiration Riko. - 06 Nov 2016
