Italian Goulash

Mouth watering beef nuggets prepared according to one of the most typical recipes of the Italian Mountain gastronomy.

INGREDIENTS
Servings 4
2 lb beef chuck
5 onions
1 cup red wine
1 teaspoon sweet red paprika
1 oz all-purpose flour
lemon zest
1 sprig rosemary
1 bay leaf
1 sprig marjoram
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 oz tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups water

PREPARATION
25 minutes preparation + 2 hours and 15 minutes cooking
Heat some extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan and then add the thinly sliced onion and the roughly diced meat.

Dissolve the flour and the paprika in half a glass of water. Pour over the meat as soon as it assumes some colour. Add red wine to the saucepan and let it evaporate.

Add the flavourings, the grated lemon zest and tomato paste: stir and dilute with some water, cover it with the lid and leave to cook for at least 2 hours, adding some water if the gulasch should thicken too much.

Serve still hot with polenta or boiled potatoes.

FOOD HISTORY
Goulash is a dish of medieval origins, which was prepared by hungharian herdsman during their lengthy pastures. They used to cook the meat with onions for a long time and then dry it under the sun in order to take it with them during their journeys. When needed, they revived the meat by adding it to vegetable soups thus creating the modern goulash.
Although being a dish of modest origins, through time became one of Hungary’s best known recipes also thanks to domination of the Austrian Empire. With time it became a typical dish of all the oriental alpine chain region and the north east of Italy
