Cooking Viennese Goulash

We had invited some friends to have a pre-Easter dinner. It was the perfect time to have fun, cooking, taking some photos and wait for our friends, whom we haven´t seen for a while since one of them lives in Brasil.

Viennese Goulash for 4/5 people

Sauté the onions in the very hot pork lard (or oil) golden brown while stiring all the time; then add the sweet paprika, stir up and deglaze immediately with vinegar and water.

The liquid should vanish severall times and each time some water is added. (Do not use too much water as the meat should not be boiled but stewed). Only like this you get the typical brown, rich sauce and the onions get completely brewed which gives the Goulash the thick consistency.

As soon as the meat is tender, add as much water and the tomato sauce until the meat is covered. Then brew the meat slowely about 10 minutes until the red-brown colored fat surfaces.

Boil some potatos in another cooking pot. We like to use them with its skin.
