Beef Goulash with Parsley Dumplings Recipe 📜


For the Beef Goulash:

  • 2 lbs (approx. 1 kg) Beef Stew Meat, cubed 🥩
  • 2 Onions, finely chopped 🧅
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced 🧄
  • 2 Red Bell Peppers, sliced 🌶️
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Paste 🍅
  • 2 tbsp Paprika 🌶️
  • 1 tsp Caraway Seeds 🌿
  • 4 cups Beef Broth 🍖
  • 2 tbsp All-Purpose Flour 🌾
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 🧂
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil 🌿

For the Parsley Dumplings:

  • 2 cups Bread Crumbs 🍞
  • 1 cup Milk 🥛
  • 1 cup Flour 🌾
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Parsley, finely chopped 🌱
  • 2 Eggs 🥚
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder 🌿
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 🧂


1. Sear the Beef:

  • In a large pot, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the cubed beef and sear until browned on all sides. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside.

2. Aromatics and Spices:

  • In the same pot, add chopped onions, minced garlic, and sliced red bell peppers. Sauté until softened. Stir in tomato paste, paprika, and caraw ay seeds, coating the vegetables in the aromatic spices.

3. Create a Flavorful Base:

  • Sprinkle flour over the vegetable mixture and stir well to create a roux. This will thicken the goulash. Gradually pour in beef broth, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.

4. Reintroduce the Beef:

  • Bring the mixture to a simmer and reintroduce the seared beef. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and let it simmer for at least 1.5 to 2 hours, allowing the beef to become tender and absorb the flavors.

5. Prepare the Dumpling Mixture:

  • In a bowl, combine bread crumbs and milk. Let it soak for a few minutes. Add flour, finely chopped parsley, eggs, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until a dough forms.

6. Dumpling Magic:

  • Shape the dumpling dough into small balls and gently place them on top of the simmering goulash. Cover the pot and let the dumplings cook for approximately 15-20 minutes or until they are cooked through.

7. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Ladle the beef goulash into bowls, ensuring each serving includes a generous helping of those flavorful parsley dumplings. Garnish with additional fresh parsley if desired.

A steaming bowl of Beef Goulash with Parsley Dumplings, a testament to the heartiness of traditional comfort food. This dish is ideal for cold nights when you crave the warmth and satisfaction that only a hearty goulash can provide. So gather your friends and family, savor the flavors, and let the joy of good food fill your home! 🍲🥂✨
