HOW TO MAKE BEAN GOULASH

WHAT IS GOULASH?

Goulash is a traditional Hungarian dish. It’s a stew or a soup containing meat, vegetables, and spices – often including paprika.

It’s super easy to make this tasty dish. Follow this simple 3-step recipe for some delicious beany goulash goodness!

  1. First, heat your oven to 180C (160Cfan/ gas 4). Cook the onions in a flameproof casserole dish with oil over a medium heat for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Next, add in the pieces of bacon and cook for a further 5 minutes until they start to colour.
  3. Finally, add in the rest of the ingredients and bring to simmer. Cover the dish and place in the oven to cook for 1 hour. Alternatively, you can simmer on the hob for approximately 40 minutes.

CHEF'S TIP

  • Try serving up your bean goulash with a side of garlic bread or cheesy garlic bread.
  • Sweet potatoes also go well nicely with a Bean goulash.
  • You can vary the spice level of your paprika according to your personal tastes – why not change it up each time?
  • This dish is warming, filling, and makes the perfect Autumnal comfort food for a festive family gathering, a standard Saturday night, or anything in between!
