Paprika Beer and Beef Goulash

What are we doing today?

The same we do every day – we take over the world!!!

Not exactly … if you look like this …

Lucy on chair

… your chances to succeed in taking over the world are fairly low, although …

Anyway, that describes how I feel most of the time at the moment. At least it’s from my point of perception.

That, though, makes it quite difficult to write away the kind of pile for kind of post with kind of recipes or the like or … whatever. The master of words is back … eh … eh …

Whatsoever, at the current rate of blog posts I am writing it gets increasingly difficult to make something of my notes and the photos lurking on various memory media.

For today, I have selected this …

Paprika Beer and Beef Goulash 01

That would be some kind of beef goulash with paprika and beer or … hm … eh … well, let’s call it Paprika Beer and Beef Goulash.

Let’s do it then, if I still get it right …

A knob of butter
500 g beef, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut
1 red chilli, chopped
300 ml lager
500 ml beef stock
Salt, pepper, smoked pepper

So, what are we going to do firs? I suppose it goes somewhat like this …

Melt the butter in a large pan at medium heat. Then seal of the beef in the pan. Once you have done that, briefly remove the beef from the pan. I’ll tell you, when it goes back.

Then chuck in the onion and let them go until translucent. Toss in the garlic, the bell pepper and the chilli.

What’s next? Yes … eh … hm, why not add the beef back to the pan and season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

Now we are almost there … well, it will need some time, but there are not many steps left. Therefore pour in the beer and the beef stock. Bring to the boil and let simmer for … until the beef is tender.

Yes, go for it. Right, it will still take a while, but, no worries.

Meanwhile you could think about what you want to have together with it. Maybe some lovely bread and an even lovelier salad. It’s just a suggestion.

Whatever the case … I think … I enjoyed it.

What else am I going to do with this post?

I have no idea. I reckon I told you so already repeatedly. Well, there was something to be going on, I reckon.

So far I am not so sure about it, though, but I guess ‘bills’ is waiting somehow … if you know what I mean. I guess, I know.

After that being said, I only have to decide what to do next, I mean … home alone … as things are …

I just got some files from the hard disk from my old computer. There were tons of video files – things I recorded from television. So I could do a lot watching soon …

… unless I get a better idea. Well, there are tons of books here, too. So it could be reading instead. Argh, there are so many options and so many things yet to do, I guess I am getting an overflow error again …

‘An unexpected error occurred!’

In general, I don’t try to expect errors … hm … maybe I do. It’s part of my negative attitude.

So, I better stop this gibberish now and do something worthwhile …

Paprika-, Bier- und Rindergulasch

In kleines Stück Butter
500 g Rindfleisch, gewürfelt
1 große Zwiebel, gehackt
3 Knoblauchzehen, gehackt
1 rote Paprikaschote, klein geschnitten
1 rote Chilli, gehackt
300 ml Bier
500 ml Rinderbrühe
Salz, Pfeffer und geräucherter Paprika

So, was machen wir als erstes? Gut, ich denke, es läuft folgendermaßen …

Die Butter bei mittlerer Hitze in einer großen Pfanne zerlassen. Dann die Rindfleischstücke rein und von allen Seiten anbraten. Wenn das erledigt ist, das Fleisch kurz aus der Pfanne entfernen. Ich sag dann bescheid, wenn es wieder rein kann.

Nun die Zwiebel reinwerfen und sie glasig dünsten. Den Knoblauch, die geschnittene Paprika und die Chilli dazugeben.

Wie geht’s weiter? Ja … äh … nun, warum nicht das Fleisch zurück in die Pfanne geben und das ganze mit Salz, Pfeffer und Paprika würzen.

Jett sind wir schon fast fertig … nun, es wird zwar noch eine Weile dauern, aber es sind nicht mehr viele Arbeitsschritte übrig. Daher nun das Bier und die Rinderbrühe angießen, alles zum Kochen bringen und köcheln lassen … bis das Rindfleisch schön zart ist.

Dann irgendwann ist es Zeit zum Essen und man könnte es so servieren, wie auf den Bildern oben gezeigt … oder man hat noch eine andere tolle Idee.
