Beef goulash made with chopped tomatoes

Made with Mutti Polpa

Mutti Polpa Finely Chopped Tomatoes is a unique product that combines the juice of the tomato with its thinly diced flesh, and is able to retain all the freshness of just picked fruit. A very versatile product, Mutti Polpa is perfect for both quick cook dishes and dishes that cook slowly or at high temperatures. It takes 5kg of fresh tomatoes to make 1kg of Mutti Polpa. It is made by the patented Mutti cold crushing method which ensures it retains all the flavour and fragrance of a ripe tomato (and is still a closely guarded secret to this day!).

Beef goulash made with chopped tomatoes: Method

  1. To prepare this beef goulash recipe, peel and thinly slice the onions (using a mandolin if you can) and place in a large heavy bottomed pot with a lid. Sauté onions and olive oil on low heat for 30 minutes, stirring regularly until the onions are very soft and translucent (don't let them brown).
  2. Chop the beef into 8-9 mm dice and place in the pot with the cooked onion. Increase the heat to medium and brown the beef on all sides, stirring regularly. Once it has browned, add the smoked and sweet paprika. Stir through and then add the tin of Mutti Polpa and Mutti Tomato Paste. Stir, add salt to taste and simmer on low heat, covered, until the beef is tender (about an hour and a half).
  3. To make the potatoes, peel and chop into large chunks. Place in a medium sized saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. In the meantime, place the remaining thinly sliced onions in a small frypan with three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil on medium heat. Cook the onions for about ten minutes, stirring regularly until translucent and starting to brown. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. Allow the potatoes to cook until fork tender (the time taken depends on the size of your potatoes, start testing after ten minutes). Drain and return them to the same saucepan. Mash them roughly with an old-fashioned potato "masher" (or even the back of a fork), then stir through the previously prepared onions including the remaining oil in the pan. Add a splash of olive oil if they look a bit dry. Salt to taste.
  5. Serve beef goulash with a side of smashed potatoes.
