The Lazy Way to Make Awesome Hungarian Goulash

Now, I’ve eaten authentic goulash made by a Hungarian friend and it was just incredible.

The only thing was, it took her a whole bunch of time to make – not the thing you need when you’re hungry right now.

Fortunately, that’s where this fast-track, instant-download, want-it-now goulash recipe comes into its own.

This sucker contains only four ingredients, and it’s another Superfitdads masterpiece that you can make in less time than it takes to get a pizza delivered from Domino’s.

In fact, you’ll probably feel a bit guilty because things this quick and easy really shouldn’t taste so good.

Only let’s just keep that between us, OK?

The Ingredients

1 lb beef (a cut with a little fat works well)

2 cups onions (~ 2 medium or 1 large)

4 oz chorizo

½ oz paprika

Beef stock

1 tbsp olive oil

8 fl oz water

Salt & pepper (to taste)

The How

1. Cut the beef into bite-size chunks and the chorizo into thin slices

2. Peel the onions, and either chop finely or (the easier option) blitz in a food processor

3. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large skillet on a medium heat, throw in the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously

4. Add the beef and fry until brown (if the beef has some fat in it, you may not need to add more oil)

5. Add the water, paprika, chorizo and beef stock to the skillet, reduce the heat and simmer for at least 15 minutes

(the longer you simmer, the better the flavors will develop)

6 Throw into a bowl and it should now look something like this…

Nutrition Information

In total, this recipe contains around 1300 Calories and 140 grams of protein, so figure on a per-person total of something like 425-650 Calories and 45-70 grams of protein.

By comparison, a large McDonald’s Oreo Frappe contains a whopping 810 Calories and a paltry 11 grams of protein.

When it comes to dropping some serious body fat, not all calories are created equal and maximizing your satisfaction bang for your caloric buck becomes a huge deal.

This recipe makes nailing that a cinch.

Serving Suggestion

This works great with a side salad (go easy on the dressing as that could exceed the calories of the goulash!) or with some steamed vegetables like carrots and broccoli.

If you’ve got a bit of extra time (does that ever happen?), you could even add carrots and/or potatoes to the goulash, and simmer until they’re cooked.

There’s so much win to this recipe that it might be illegal soon, so jump on it while you can.

The Usual Suspects

Now, some folks might freak out at the idea of adding carbs to their goulash.

But you can relax because it’s perfectly possible to consume carbs while losing a serious amount of body fat – so things like potatoes, rice and bread don’t have to be avoided.

In fact, a study back in 2012 found that folks who consumed bread as part of a low-calorie diet had better compliance than folks who didn’t.

As with anything, the best diet (like the best training program) is the one you can actually stick to.

And sticking to anything is way simpler if we enjoy it rather than endure it.

So, ignore all those myths about carbs and fat gain.

Lazy Goulash

Ultimately, quick and easy food can be healthy and delicious.

Grab a few onions, some beef and a little chorizo and – just 20 minutes later – you’ve got something so good that folks will think it’s taken you hours to prepare.

Even better, make more than you need and take it to work for lunch the next day.

It really is that awesome.
