 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Beef in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 c Meat broth
  • 4 sl Bacon
  • 1 1/2 c Onions, chopped (3 medium)
  • 1 tb Hungarian Paprika
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Pepper
  • 1/8 ts Marjoram
  • 1/4 c Green or rep pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 c Dry white wine
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/4 c Flour
  • 1 tb Butter
  • 1/2 ts Hungarian paprika
  • 1 tb Water


Set out a Dutch oven, or a electric skillet, or a 3-quart sauce pot having
a tight fitting cover. Prepare meat broth and set aside. Dice the bacon
and place in the skillet or Dutch oven, cook slowly, stirring and turning
frequently, until the bacon is lightly browned. Remove the bacon with a
slotted spoon an put in a small bowl and set aside.

Add the chopped onion to the bacon fat in the skillet, or Dutch oven and
cook over medium heat until the onion is transparent, stirring
occasionally. Remove the onion with a slotted spoon to the bowl containing
the bacon and set aside.

Add the meat to the bacon fat and slowly brown on all sides, stirring
occasionally. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon paprika, salt, pepper, and the
marjoram over the meat mixture.

Stir in the bacon-onion mixture with the chopped green or red pepper.
Slowly pour in the meat broth and white wine. Bring to boiling. Reduce
heat, cover and simmer 2 to 2-1/2 hours, or until the meat is tender when
pierced with a fork. Remove the meat with a slotted spoon to a heavy
serving dish.

Thicken the cooking liquid by pouring 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup flour into
a screw top jar. Shake until the mixture is well blended. Slowly pour one
half of the mixture into the sauce pot, stirring constantly. Bring to
boiling. Gradually add only what is needed of the remaining flour-water
mixture for consistency desired. Bring to boiling after each addition.
Cook 3 to 5 minutes longer.

In a small skillet melt 1 tablespoon butter (or more). Remove from heat.
Blend in 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Stir in 1 tablespoon water. Immediately
add to liquid in the skillet/and/or/Dutch oven, stirring untill well
blended. Pour the sauce over the meat. Serve immediately.

Note 1. Both Germans and Hungarians serve the Gulyas with Spaetzle

Note 2: You can add any of the following to the receipe.

1 teaspoon caraway seed
1 clove garlic, minced 6 medium potatoes, washed, pared, and
quartered. Add about 1/2 hour
before the end of the cooking time.

Read my lips: Use only pure, genuine, authentic Hungarian Paprika. Without
the Hungarian Paprika it tastes like fecal matter.
