2. Lamb Goulash cook yourself the professional Cooking Tips

So that the goulash with lamb safely succeeds here some cook professional tips:

  • Cut the meat into 3 cm cubes.
  • Use a large pot with lid or better an oval roaster.
  • First peel and chop the onion.
  • A part of meat and a part of onions have proven to be good proportions.
  • Heat the roaster and season the meat with salt and pepper shortly before frying.
  • I usually season the meat on the wrapping paper.
  • Let the meat take on its colour, heat the stove to the highest temperature.
  • After turning the meat add the onion cubes and continue roasting.
  • The onions may turn light brown.
  • Add the tomato paste and roast briefly until light brown.
  • Deglaze with the broth or veal stock and season with paprika.
  • Lamb goulash is a stew, therefore the goulash is better in the oven!
  • Season the lamb goulash with garlic, lemon grated, caraway, oregano and thyme and place in the preheated oven with the lid on.
  • 190 °C top/bottom heat is ideal.
  • Set the kitchen alarm clock to one hour and chill in the meantime!

3. Supplements to the Lamb Goulash

You can serve the lamb goulash with potato gratin, parsley potatoes and bacon beans. I find ribbon noodles inappropriate.

Today it’s even easier…

  • Peel some small potatoes and cut them into quarters.
  • Cut a potato into pieces.
  • Clean and chop the beans.
  • Cook the beans and the chopped potatoes in salted water until al dente.
  • Drain the beans and the decorative potatoes and put them back in the pot with a little butter. 

When the alarm clock rings, add the quartered potatoes to the lamb goulash, stir and continue cooking for another 35-40 minutes with the lid on.

Arrange the lamb goulash: Please use hot plates, place meat and potatoes on the plate, add warm beans and decorative potatoes and serve decorated with fresh oregano… that’s wonderful!
