Green Bean & Turnip Gulasch


This is basically very easy to cook. The origin of Gulasch (Beef) is said to be in Hungary where they use sweet Paprika as main seasoning. This dish is my own version.








Green Bean & Turnip Gulasch

 Ingredients ( 4 Portions)

200 grams ground Beef ( or 50-50 Beef/pork filet)
1 sausage , any would do (optional) - cubed
1 onion-cubed, 2 cloves crushed garlic
1 each red & yellow bell pepper - cut into square pieces
10 medium size mushrooms - thinly cut
2 tbsp soya Sauce
250 grams flat green beans - thinly cut ( elongated as in photo)
1 medium White turnip - thinly cut as in the green beans.
2 tbsp sweet paprika powder
3 tbsp creme fraiche or sour cream
salt & pepper to taste
cooking oil for the frying pan



1. Heat the pan w/ 2 tbsp. cooking oil, fry the garlic then add the ground meat til  
it becomes pale in color and water evaporated. Add the onion and fry til onions
get glossy. Season with salt & pepper.. set aside

2. Steam the green beans and White turnips in a steamer until they become soft
about 10 minutes, remove from steamer and tranfer the beans & turnips in a
colander and rinse under running cold water to prevent beans from loosing the
green Color.

  3. In a deeper casserole, transfer the meat and add the vegetables and 2 cups of
water ( or vegetable soup ), let boil, then add the Paprika powder, 2 tbsp of
creme fraiche or sour cream. simmer for about two 5 minutes, then add 2 tbsp.
of corn flour dissolved in 1/2 cups water + 1 tbsp soya Sauce, mixed well while
the liquid gets thicker but not dry...if possible add more water or soup, adjust
Serve hot with rice or baguette/white bread.
