Slow Cooked Traditional Goulash
This dish is pure nostalgia for me. I grew up eating this with Mum’s handmade potato dumplings that I would help her make. Goulash is a hearty dish originating in Hungary that every region has a different way of making. Chunky cuts of fall-apart beef or pork are slowly cooked in a fragrant sauce riddled with sweet paprika, onion and garlic. It can be served with noodles, creamy polenta, mashed potato or potato gnocchi, as I have done in this picture. A dollop of sour cream sets it off.
