It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!
I normally make this simple beef goulash with a 2 kilogram (4.4 lb) batch of fatty beef flank cubes. Ingredients listed are for 500 grams (1.1 lb) of beef. Multiply/divide entire recipe as needed. Add herbs, spices, creme fraiche/sour cream and spring onion to suit your taste. I don't add salt till the end due to the lavour of chicken stock. Enjoy this easy keto beef tallow goulash recipe!
Add 1 tbsp of tallow to frypan on high heat. Once smoking add beef till browned all over.
Remove beef with slotted spoon and reserve in a bowl. Lower heat to medium and add another tbsp of tallow if your beef cubes weren't that fatty to begin with.
Add chopped onion.
Cook stirring for around 5 minutes till released water is mostly evaporated and frypan is deglazed.
Add mushrooms and stir until released water is mostly evaporated. Add bay leaves, cayenne, paprika, caraway seeds, thyme and marjoram.
Cook for a minute or two. Add tomato paste cook stirring through for a minute. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Return beef and juices.
Add chicken stock till nearly covered. Mix all through. Bring to boil then reduce to simmer.
Leave for 2 hours uncovered stirring occasionally. Raise heat to reduce liquid if needed.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir through a splash of your favorite vinegar at the end.
Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream and sprinkle with spring onion.
