Korean Inspired Beef Stew (Galbijjim) (kalbitɕ͈im)

>
>
This  stew is very similar to a traditional Korean Galbijjim (kalbitɕ͈im), except that I have omitted some of the typical additions such as  jujube, ginkgo nuts, carrots, pine nuts, chestnuts, shiitake, and seogi mushrooms. This version is a simple home-version of the Galbijjim, unlike the more elaborate version you would get in a restaurant or even at home, when guests are expected or more time and money would be available to prepare a more elaborate, costly and elegant meal.
But, although some of the fancier ingredients are absent from this stew, there is an abundance of flavor and umami which will leave your culinary senses completely happy and satisfied 🙂

P.S.
If you prefer a more traditional appearance (dark color and the texture less liquid), add soy sauce instead of the salt and less water to braise

Hungarian Beef Goulash

>
>
Today  I combined breakfast, lunch and dinner all into one fabulous meal.
(I did however have a few fruits throughout the day).
Goulash is one of the dishes which were a staple in the South of Germany when I grew up and it was enjoyed in most homes and simple and even fine restaurants frequently. Goulash is quite different from  other beef stews. There is now flour to thicken the sauce as in most other stews (the collagen in the beef will take care of that) and there are much more onions and sweet paprika to give the goulash its characteristic taste and color. Goulash is usually reddish in color and it’s heat level can be high, depending on the amount of hot chili or chili powder added (if any). To obtain the original flavor of good goulash, season with equal parts of finely chopped lemon peel, thyme and caraway seeds.
I usually prefer my goulash to be accompanied by Knödel (dumplings) or Spätzle, but frankly, today this was too much effort for me and I substituted the Knödel or Spätzle with pasta 🙂

Ungarischer Rinder Gulasch (Hungarian Beef Goulash)

>
>
In  my opinion, one of the best way’s to prepare a tough beef cut is to transform it into Paprika Gulasch  (Paprika Goulash or Hungarian Goulash).
While there are  many great and not so great recipes out there, the basic principle to a great goulash is simple: Same amount of onions and meat by volume, LOTS of sweet paprika, no flour to thicken (the onions will take care of that) and most important :  Goulash seasoning, which will set it’s flavor apart from any other meat stew : 1/3 finely chopped caraway seed, 1/3 finely chopped thyme, 1/3 finely chopped lemon peel.

Pot Au Feu

>

My  butcher had these beautiful, fleshy beef neck bones which begged me to take them home and transform into a tasty dish. Since I had some nice baby carrots and beans in the fridge, what else then a rich “pot au feu” with pasta.
As usual, simple is best 🙂
