Authentic tasting, easy and tweakable from a soup to a hearty main meal.
My first experience of this popular Hungarian dish was during a trip to Budapest to visit a friend. We we stopped for a bite to eat having visited the Royal Palace.
I'm a fan of sampling the local cuisine when we are travelling so I ordered the Goulash Soup served with a crusty roll. It was so delicious it has been a regular on our menu ever since the arrival of our slow cooker.
The bueaty of this dish is its flexibility - you can vary the consistency from a soup all the way through to a a casserole like viscosity just by varying the amount of tomatoes and water added.
The other great feature is that it is so tasty that you'll need only a little beef, this is despite the relatively short list of ingredients.
• 150 - 200g beef (stewing/casserole or as chep/expensive as you like)
• two thirds of a red pepper
• medium onion
• tin of chopped tomatoes
• chilli (fresh/dried flake/powder)
• salt and pepper
• beef stock cube
• crusty bread to serve
