Oma's Goulash

This is the goulash that my Oma always made. It has very few ingredients but the flavor is so good. This recipe stems back from Russia, trekked across Europe to Germany, then to Paraguay and finally Canada. Needless to say that her family has been eating this for generations. You can serve this with rice or pasta your choice. A simple salad completes the meal.
  • 1 lb round steak cubed, or use stewing beef cubed into smaller chunks
  • 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup of cream, or if you must go lighter, milk, but it is so good with the cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 heaping tbsp flour
In a pot brown the beef cubes well. Add barely enough water to cover the meat and cook until tender. About 40 minutes to an hour depending on the meat.
Mix flour with cold water and add the paste to the meat. Cook for a few minutes.
Add the tomato sauce, and the cream.
Heat through and season to taste.
