This is a dish my friend Candan introduced me to, its Turkish style goulash! Its really simple to make and doesn’t take much effort especially if you make it in a crock pot like me:)
You can make it on the stove top as well, just set it on low heat, I have glass stove top and cook it on 3, takes a few hours to cook.
The only effort you have to make is in the marinating…it is an important step as its what makes the meat flavourful and tender, if you forget to marinate that’s ok, it will still work out, just not as flavourful.
What you will:
- 3 lb stew meat (cut in small cubes)
- 4 onions
- Olive oil
- 2 tsp Paprika (or more)
Peel onions and add them to a food processor, process until it becomes almost liquid texture. Strain the onion juice and discard the pulp. Place meat in a marinating bowl or bag and pour in the onion juice and 4 tbsp olive oil. Marinate over night.
Simply add in the meat mixture in the pot or crock pot and mix in the paprika. If your cooking it in a pot simmer on low covered for 4-5 hours till meat is tender.
If your using the crock pot, I set it at the ‘II’ 2nd dial for the first 2 hours to get it going, then switch it to ‘I’ 1 st dial for the remaining 3-4 hours till meat is tender. Its so tasty and goes well with rice.
