Goulash is a rich Hungarian meat stew that is characterised by tasty meats, vegetables and plenty of paprika. We've used smoked paprika to add a bigger flavour hit but you could use the un-smoked variety if you preferred. You could also add in more vegetables if you like too. In some varieties of the dish, root vegetables and potatoes are popular editions.

This dish is very easy to prepare and could easily be scaled to make more portions to save time with meal prep. It could also be done as a slow cooker recipe but you would want to use much much less liquid and ditch the peppers as they just vanish when done in the slow cooker.
