The famous Bulgarian goulash (bogracsgulyas)
This soup is prepared on an open fire in a very popular competition in Hungary for the best goulash — not only because the real Magyar shepherds cooked it that way, but also because of the bowls designed especially for goulash. Actually, the real name of the soup is bogracsgulyas, or ’’gulyas pot’’.recipes cool stuff for recipes cool stuff to recipes buy recipes cool stuff for kids recipes
- 2 lbs (1 kg) beef with no bones
- 4-5 strips of bacon or pork fat (you can use vegetable oil as well)
- 10 oz (300 g) onion
- 3 tablespoons of paprika
- salt, caraway seeds, garlic
- 2 pounds (1 kg) potatoes

- Cut the meat (shoulder, shank) into cubes 1/2-1 in. (1.5-2 cm) wide on each side. Fry chopped onions in the melted fat (or oil) until golden brown. Reduce the heat, then put paprika into the fat, stirring quickly. Add the meat and pounded garlic mixed with caraway seeds, and pour in a little water and stir occasionally, continuing to simmer it on low heat. Add water if needed.
- While the meat is stewing, peel and cut the potatoes to 1/2 in. (1 cm) wide cubes. Chop the green peppers and tomatoes and prepare dumplings. When the meat is almost ready, let the water evaporate so that only fat is left in the pan. Add the potatoes to the meat, stir well and stew until the potatoes are glassy, then pour in the broth or water and add green pepper and tomatoes.
- When the potatoes are almost cooked, put dumplings in the soup just before serving. Adjust the soup by adding water or broth. Add more salt if needed.
- Instructions for making dumplings: The name csipetke derives from the Hungarian word ’’Csipkedni,’’ which means ’’to pinch.’’ Combine flour, eggs and salt (without water) and knead dough. Roll it on a floured board into a sheet with a thickness of about 1 mm and pinch small, fingernail-sized bits out of the dough with floured hands. Then add them to the boiling soup. In 3-4 minutes they will be cooked and will float to the surface. recipes cool stuff for recipes cool stuff to recipes buy recipes cool stuff for kids recipes
