Hungarian Beef and Pepper Goulash

Pressure cookers are a great addition to any kitchen. I recently got one and my roommate had the idea of making this hearty dish his mom used to make at home.

What’s special here is the Hungarian sweet paprika. It’s a great source of antioxidants and antibacterial compounds. Traditionally, it’s used to treat sore throats, nasal bleeding, joint pain, and fevers.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz bacon
  • 2 pounds beef stew meat
  • 2 large onion
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 2 red bell pepper
  • 4 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Hungarian sweet paprika (regular paprika works fine)
  • 1/3 cup GFCF sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water

Preparation:

  • Dice bacon
  • Chop onion and both bell peppers into 1-in pieces
  • Cut beef stew meat into 1-in cubes
  • On medium heat and uncovered, cook bacon in the pressure cooker for 4-5 min or until crisp
  • Add chopped onion and cook for 1 min
  • On medium heat, add beef and brown for 4-8 min, turning as needed
  • Add bell peppers
  • In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix 1/2 cup water, tomato paste and paprika
  • Add to cooker
  • Cover and bring to high pressure
  • Once stabilized, pressure cook on lower setting for 10 minutes
  • Carefully release pressure
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Add the sour cream and stir
  • Makes 4-6 servings

Now if you don’t have a pressure cooker or want to use a regular pot or crock pot to slow cook:
Just fry the bacon, brown the meat, combine everything except the sour cream, and simmer for 3-5 hours. Finally season to taste, add the sour cream, and serve.
