With a hint of lemon for a surprising zestiness, this traditional goulash is perfect - tender and tasty when served over cooked egg noodles.

Ingredients and Method



  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the stew meat, caraway seeds, onion and paprika.
  2. Cook and stir until the meat is browned, and the onions are translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and lemon zest, and cook for about a minute, until garlic is fragrant.
  4. Stir in the tomato paste and beef consomme, to blend well, adding water if necessary to cover the meat. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Just before the meat is done cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and serve the goulash spooned over the egg noodles. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream.
