Goulash on the drum
Talented friend Rolf in Germany shared his goulash recipe with me a few months ago. I've really been enjoying it. Thank you again Rolf!
2 1/2 lbs shanks (I use beef)
2 1/2 lbs onions cubed
5 cloves garlic
1 tsp crushed caraway
1 TBS marjoram
1 tsp oregano
4 TBS sweet paprika ( or more)
1 TBS wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp tomato paste
What I did...
saute onions in lard til brown, remove 1/2 of the onions and puree them. place them back into the pot, add minced garlic, caraway, oregano, paprika, vinegar, paste and a little bit of stock, Simmer for 30 minutes. Salt and pepper. Add cubed shanks and enough beef stock to come half way up the side of the meat. Simmer 2-3 hours or until tender. Stir every hour or so.
I let the goulash simmer in the drum..
The meat is fall off the bone tender, I love it!
It's not like the macaroni, hamburger stuff that I grew up seeing here. lol
This goulash is one of my favorite new comfort meals. :)
Not sure if you will see this but Thank you again Rolf!
