Goulash #5: Spicy beef goulash

Goulash #5. Honestly, I think it is already 6th different one I have prepared, I have just started with numbers a bit later πŸ™‚ For me… goulash is always option when I do not know what to cook and want to have something warm and delicious. And my husband simply loves it! πŸ™‚ So why not. This time I have prepared spicy goulash with mainly beef, but with addition of spicy chorizo and Turkish beef – chicken soft salami.


What do you need:Β 

750 g beefΒ 

150 g spicy chorizo

150 g Turkish beef – chicken soft salami

1 onion

2 tbsp sweet paprika powder

2 tbsp hot chilli powder

cayenne pepper, chilli flakes

2 pieces of bay leave

beef broth or water with vegetable/beef stock

1 tbsp flour



500 g pasta



When I prepare goulash I usually start one day ahead with cooking beef in slow cooker and prepare beef broth (recipe could be found here). The meat gets really soft and tender and it goes great with goulash afterwards. And I do not need to use vegetable or beef stocks. However, it is not needed to prepare it that way and you can make it straight ahead πŸ˜‰


So, when my meat and broth are ready, I take a big pot and add oil. Heat up the oil, add chopped onion and fry it until golden. When ready, add cut spicy chorizo and Turkish salami. When slightly fried, add beef into the pot as well (ready one or fresh). In case of fresh one, fry it with chorizo and salami until soft and then add sweet paprika powder with hot chilli powder. When you use already cooked one, put in a pot and addΒ sweet paprika powder with hot chilli powder. Fry the mixture for a while and pour beef broth into the pot (or water with beef/vegetable stock). When done, let it boil for about 15 minutes, then add flour mixed in water and let it boil for next 30 minutes (until it gets thicker). In the mean time, prepare pasta in other pot πŸ™‚


Once everything ready, you can serve! And enjoy the tickling spiciness with your taste buds πŸ™‚ You can have it with pint of beer or as me – with cider…

  1. Hi Vero– I know what you mean about making new versions of a dish you really love– I have so many chocolate chip cookie recipes– and different rubs for salmon… This #5 (#6??) goulash looks so warming and delicious! but have a question– What is Turkish beef?? I don’t think we have it here, but maybe something similar… xox

    1. Hello Rhonda! Yes, goulash has so many versions πŸ™‚ Hmmm… Turkish beef salami it is soft salami (almost like a big sausage πŸ™‚ ). I usually pick Turkish one as it is most of the time halal and really good quality one. maybe German soft salami you can find over there?
