Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups flank steak strips ( 430 grams )
  • 3 cups grated carrots ( 5 medium sized carrots )
  • 1 ½ cup chopped onion ( 1 medium sized onion )
  • 1 cup finely chopped kale
  • ½ parsley root, finely grated
  • ¼ celeriac, finely grated
  • 2 bay leaves
  • dry juniper and black pepper to taste
  • parsley leaves to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/3 cup beef stock
  • 6 Tbsp tomato puree

Instructions

  1. Pour olive oil into the pot.

  2. Make a layer of ½ cup of onions and carrots ( 1 cup) and sprinkle with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

  3. Cover with one third of meat stripes.

  4. Repeat the steps 2 and 3 until you spend all the vegetables, meat, juniper, black pepper, salt and parsley. Leave tomato puree and beef stock for later.

  5. Let the ingredients gently boil for 60 minutes and stir occasionally. Ladle beef stock in 3 to 4 batches so goulash bubbles slowly without sticking to the bottom of your pot.

  6. After 60 minutes, add tomato puree to the goulash, combine it with the rest of ingredients and let boil for additional 10 minutes.

  7. Serve with your favourite pasta, rice or bread dumplings.
