Beef Goulash & Vienna, Austria


Vienna - Art History Museum

Vienna – Art History Museum

A recent trip to Vienna, Austria inspired me greatly.

Vienna is a beautiful city located in the heart of Europe.  It is a gem of a city that overflows with a spectacular history.  This is a town where many a contribution to mankind have been made in the areas of art, science, music, and food. Viennese cuisine has always struck me, as a chef, as practical and delicious, and that’s the lure of it.  

If I were to say: Apple Strudel, Weiner Schnitzel, Chicken Paprikash, Bread Dumplings or Goulash- you would, most likely, recognize them all. These are just some of the many classic Viennese dishes that have stood the test of time and are internationally known.


Beef Goulash

Beef Goulash

My all-time favorite is beef goulash. It was one of the very first dishes I ever learned to make back in my culinary school days.

Here is an easy recipe to make that can easily be adjusted for small or large groups.  Once  you have all ingredients in the pan there is very little left for you to do.

Except let it simmer gently for about an hour and become absolutely delicious!
