      Peel and finely dice the onions and garlic.
    2. Step 2

    3. Step 3

      Cut the meat into 4×4 cm cubes.
    4. Step 4

      Add the sugar to the onions and let it caramelize slightly. Add the tomato puree, increase heat, fry briefly and deglaze with apple vinegar.
    5. Step 5

      Add the meat and pour in the beef broth. Add the spices except for the paprika and simmer the goulash on the stove for 75 minutes.

      Reduce cooking liquid by one third on a rollign boil.
    8. Step 8

      Mix paprika powder with a ladle of juice, add paprika and meat back to the reduced mixture and cook for a further 15 minutes (this will keep the colour and flavour of the paprika fresher).
