Goulash is a Hungarian meat dish, where paprika is featured prominently. For an authentic version, we recommend using a sweet Hungarian paprika.
* INGREDIENTS :
° 2 tbsp. vegetable oil or lard

°3 tbsp. sweet paprika

° Black pepper, to taste
° 3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and cut into small cubes

Heat a saucepan over medium heat with the oil. Add the onions. Cook, 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are lightly colored.
Remove the pot from the heat and add the paprika and garlic. Mix well with the onions.
Return the pan to the heat. Add the veal, caraway, broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and partially cover. Cook until the meat is tender, about 1 hour.
