Beef Goulash in a Dash
300 g (10.5 oz) stir-fry Scotch Beef using rump or minute steaks, cut into strips
300 g (10.5 oz) new or waxy potatoes, thickly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
100 g (3.5 oz) button mushrooms, halved
2 tsp paprika
500 g jar tomato based cooking sauce
300 ml (0.5 pt) hot beef stock
2 tbsp natural yoghurt
Freshly chopped parsley or chives (optional)
- Blanch the potatoes in boiling water for 3-4 minutes then drain thoroughly. Meanwhile heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir-fry the beef for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
- Add the mushrooms, paprika and potato slices, cook for a further minute.
- Stir in the tomato sauce and stock, leave to gently simmer for 10 minutes longer to reduce and thicken the sauce if preferred.
Serve in bowls topped with a spoonful of yoghurt and fresh herbs or a dusting of paprika.
Tasty Tip: Pork is often used in Goulash; replace the beef with stir-fry pork strips or fillet or loin steaks, cut into thin strips…and why not add a green or red pepper, deseeded and cut into strips for an extra serving of vegetables.
Tip: If time is of the essence serve this Goulash as a chunky soup – or simmer for longer and accompany with fresh vegetables and crusty bread for mopping…
