"This hearty beef stew is perfect for colder days and warms you up in no time with its spices. Braising the meat in the pot for longer makes it extra tender and also creates a delicious, velvety sauce. The tomatoes and paprika powder are essential for a beef stew, as they contribute not only to the flavor but also to the red color. Nowadays you can buy pre-packaged goulash meat in supermarkets. However, if you want to cut the meat yourself, you can use marbled meat with tendons, e.g. from the calves, shoulder, or high ribs. The beef stew goes perfectly with potatoes, rice, noodles, or bread."
