Beef Goulash

The recipe is one of those I have been making for many years, I don't have a specific recipe where I was inspired by, just what I grabbed along the way and adapted to our tastes and preferences. It is one of the most successful dishes I make, especially appreciated by men.

The taste, aroma and texture are perfect, follow exactly the steps and notice how simple it is but with an excellent and exemplary result.

It is important to choose the meat well, I also made it with beef, more recently I make it with veal (it cooks faster), if necessary I also make it with pork, so adapt.

Step 7

Pour enough water to cover the meat and vegetables, bring to a boil - when it boils well, turn down the heat and leave the pot with the lid on top until the meat is tender. It depends on what you took - it can vary the cooking time from 40 minutes to 2-3 hours even. Here you could also use the pressure cooker, if you took the beef from the concrete one, it is important that the meat is soft after boiling.
