Hungarian Beef Goulash#Eattheworld

A traditional Hungarian Goulash is a soup or stew that is made with tender beef, onion, spices with paprika. Made this with the ready spice mix and making this was a cake walk for me. Just one pot and I am sorted. No grinding or standing in the kitchen to stir. Placed on the stove and relaxed for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes checked the meat ( since the meat I got was tender ) it was nearly cooked added the potatoes and again relaxed was 20 minutes. Ta da..aa after that it was ready to enjoy!!
500 Grams Tender Beef - cut into medium size cubes
1 Medium Onion - sliced
2 Medium Potatoes - cut into big pieces
4 Tablespoons Tomato puree
1½ Cup Water
1 Packet Ready Maggi Gulasch Spice Mix
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Heat olive oil in a pan, add the beef to the pan and sear it on all sides on high flame. Next, add the onions and sauté for 2 minutes again on high flame stirring continuously till it is translucent. Add the tomato puree and again stir fry for 2 minutes on medium low flame till the tomato coats the meat pieces. 
Now add the ready mix mixed in ½ Cup water mix it well add in the remaining cup of water and bring this to a boil, reduce the flame let is simmer , cover and let it cook for 1 to 1½ hours or until tender. Half way through the cooking add the potatoes give it a gook stir and let is cook until the meat and potatoes are done.  
As this was cooking it started to smell like heaven throughout my house and the color of the stew is so awesome. The taste was absolutely divine. Revived memories of my trip to Hungary and my stay in a boat house on the Danube river.
Serve this crusty slices of bread and Enjoy!!
