Looked up Chef John's recipe to match the video for Beef Goulash on! Ingredients for 4 large portions of beef goulash: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into 2-inch cubes, seasoned generously with salt and pepper 2 onions, chopped 2 tsp olive oil 1/2 tsp salt 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, toasted and ground 2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon cayenne 1 tsp dried marjoram leaves 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 4 cups chicken broth (1 to deglaze pan, 3 more added to stew) *Note: real goulash is more like a soup, so if you want yours thinner, just add 2 or 3 extra cups of broth. 1/4 cup tomato paste 3 garlic cloves, crushed 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste 1 bay leaf 1 tsp sugar 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar *Simmer for about 2 hours, or until tender Garnish with sour cream and fresh marjoram if desired.
