Beans and goulash #4

Goulash time again πŸ™‚ This is the type of dish I really like to prepare – you can add basically whatever your taste buds are requesting. This time it is beans goulash with spicy twist and tender beef.


What do you need

500 g beef (whatever type you prefer)

optionally you can add chorizo or salami as well

2 cups beans (I used red beans, but you can use whatever type you prefer)

1 bigger onion

4 tomatoes

5 garlic cloves

3 pieces of bay leaf

1 tea spoon of marjoram

2 tbls of sweet and 1 tbls of spicy paprika powder

salt and pepper



Take a big pot, add oil with chopped onion and fry it until golden. Afterwards, add cut beef pieces and fry them for couple of minutes (approximately 5 to 10 minutes) with added paprika powders. Optionally, you can add sliced chorizo or other type of salami according to your taste and fry it together with meat. Add around 1l of water, cut tomatoes, beans, garlic cloves, bay leaves and marjoram. Bring it to boil and cook until soft. It is better to put beans into the water over night so it will be ready quicker. However, who did not do it, never mind, the cooking time will be just a bit longer. Or if you are not in hurry as me, put the whole pot in slow cooker and left it cook over night. The meat became tender and beans really soft. To finalize, add salt and pepper according to your taste.


When ready, you can serve immediately with piece of bread or as we do – let it set and serve the next or following day. It is going to taste much better!
