Beef, cut into little chunks
Beef broth or water
1. In a large pot, drizzle some olive oil and cook beef over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. You can add paprika now or later.
2. Add the veggies, all peeled and diced. Cook for a few minutes.
3. Add broth or water. If you're using water, add salt. If you haven't added paprika yet, add now. I use imported Hungarian paprika.
4. Close the lid, bring to a boil, then simmer. Goulash is a slow cooking food, so the slower you cook the better, but 30 minutes is enough since this is supposed to be a quick and easy recipe.
By the way, sometimes when I have extra time I add handmade egg noodles, like in the photo below. This is optional, of course.
Serve with bread and/or sour cream.
Om nom nom!
