What’s for Dinner: Hungarian Goulash in under 15 minutes

January 30, 2013

This Goulash Recipe is so quick and easy it is crazy!  It is super quick so you need to make sure you have everything ready – especially the potatoes (if you want to cook mashed potatoes).  See below for our REVAMP Inspiration too.

Recipe type: Dinner
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • OIL, 2 teaspoons
  • ONION 1, sliced
  • FIELD/ PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS, 4 large, halved and cut into big chunks
  • GARLIC 2 cloves, chopped
  • RUMP/ PORTERHOUSE/ SCOTCH FILLET STEAK, 250-300g, sliced thinly - 3mm slices (as per a Thai curry).
  • PLAIN FLOUR, 1 heaped tablespoon
  • PAPRIKA, 2 heaped teaspoons
  • VEGETABLE COOKING WATER OR STOCK, ½ cup (up to 1 cup)
  • FRUIT CHUTNEY, 3 tablespoons
  • Serve with:
  • Mashed potatoes and loads of green vegies - Get the potatoes cooking first because this meal is ready in NO TIME!!!
  1. Heat oil in fry pan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic, cook for a minute then add mushrooms, and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add thinly sliced steak and stir quickly. Allow meat to cook for about 1-2 minutes, until meat is mostly brown (still with little bit of blood)
  3. Add plain flour and paprika, stir for a minute.
  4. Add fruit chutney, allow to heat for 1-2 minutes. Add as much stock or vegetable cooking water as you need to create a little sauciness, then serve!
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes and green vegetables.

One of my favourite Revamps for this meal is a Steak and Mushroom Pie.  Just remember to double the quantities so you have enough filling!

Thanks Aimee. Your twofers meals are a great idea! Anytime we can be more eiefcifnt with our food, time and energy we win!Thanks Whitney. I really appreciate it. I have to say that adding lunches to our plan made a huge difference. Huge!We send the kids’ with hot lunch in their Thermos food jars. It’s in their for 3.5+ hrs after we warm it up in the morning before they eat it and it’s fine. I’ve even tested this out at work. They prefer hot lunches so we do this most days.Worth a try.
