Real Hungarian Goulash (No Tomato Paste Here)

“It’s hard to find a real Hungarian recipe for goulash. This is the real thing. Real goulash has no tomato paste or beans. Eat with a slice of rustic bread. Dip bread in sauce and clean the plate with the bread at the end. Can be eaten with spaetzle.”

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons lard
  • 2 large onions, finely sliced
  • 2 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
  • 1 cup water, or as needed
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Melt lard in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onions in hot lard until soft and translucent, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Stir beef and paprika into onions. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add 1 cup water and simmer, adding more water if moisture gets too low, until meat falls apart and onion sauce is thick, about 1 hour more. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
