I have always loved Goulash but hadn’t thought about making it until I stumbled on this recipe. It truly is low carb if you leave out the noodles! Now, I could swear my friend’s mom added grated carrots to sweeten it but I don’t remember how much.


1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup olive oil
5 pounds beef chuck, well trimmed, cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 pounds yellow onions, chopped
1/4 cup Hungarian paprika
3 cups Homemade Beef Stock
Sour cream, for garnish
2 pounds broad egg noodles, cooked
Chopped chives, for garnish
