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!

I just loooove goulash! This real kind, not the thin tomatoey stuff. I'll have to give Rolf's a try. I just saw the weather radar shot of your area. I'm thinking a warm oven looks mighty inviting for a day or two. Have a Happy New Years!
