Goulash || The Keto Kitchen


Originating from Hungary, goulash is a popular meal predominantly eaten in Central Europe but also in other parts of Europe. It’s basically a stew with beef and vegetables (potatoes), but obviously this version is a very different interpretation of the known goulash.
I gotta say, this is amazing. With ingredients like beef, cheese, dried herbs and tomatoes you expect it to be really just a bolognese but it’s NOTHING like a bolognese. It’s a bit sweet, it’s really earthy in flavour and it’s a meal I think would be a crowd pleaser (providing they’re not vegetarian!)

| The Recipe |

– 500gGround Beef(I used 5% fat)
– 1medium White Onion
– 2Garlic Cloves, minced (or 2 tsp Garlic Puree)
– 200gTomatoes, diced
– 1tbspSoy Sauce
– 2 tspDried Oregano
– 1tspDried Basil
– 2Dried Bay Leaves
– 1 tsp Salt
– 1/2tspPepper
– 200gCabbage, shredded
– 85g Cheddar Cheese,shredded

1. In a large pan or pot (with a lid), over medium heat, add the beef, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks. Cook until the meat is cooked through and there’s no longer any pink.
2. Add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir the mixture until the onions are translucent.
3. Stir in canned tomatoes, diced tomatoes, soy sauce, oregano, basil, bay leaves, salt and black pepper.Bring the mixture to a simmer.
4. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan/pot, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5. Stir in the cabbage, and let simmer for 5-10 minutes (5 minutes for a crunchy texture, 10 minutes for a softer texture)
6. Remove from heat, discard bay leaf. Top with your cheese, place lid back on top and leave for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!

Alternatively, you can place your goulash in a casserole dish, put your grill/broiler on high heat and once heated up, cover your goulash with the cheese and pop under the grill/broiler for about 3-5 minutes until the cheese is fully melted and is browning.
