Easy Beef Goulash

Easy Beef Goulash
Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Cook 3 hrs 30 mins


  • 2 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 sweet onions (Vidalia, Maui or Bermuda), halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup mild barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Make It

1. Sprinkle beef cubes with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Heat oil in large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add meat; cook until browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer with slotted spoon to plate.

2. To drippings in pot, add onion and water. Cover; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 10 minutes.

3. Return meat to pot. Stir in barbecue sauce, paprika, pepper and remaining salt. Cover; simmer over low heat until meat is fork-tender, about 3 hours. (If stew thickens too much during cooking, add a little water -- about 1/2 cup.) Serve immediately, over noodles if desired.
