2 large carrots, sliced into rounds.

Chopped celery; I used 2 stalks.

A 14-oz can.Of diced tomatoes.

2 Tbsp.Of tomato paste.

2 Cups.Of beef broth.

2 Tsp.Of paprika.

1 Tsp.Of dried oregano.

1 Tsp.Of dried thyme.

1 bay leaf.

Salt and black pepper to taste.

1 Tbsp.Of Worcestershire sauce.

1 Cup.Of water.

1 Cup.Of elbow macaroni or any pasta of your choice.

Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish).

PREPARATION METHOD:

1st Step:

In a large Dutch oven or saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Cook the beef stew flesh until all sides are browned. This step helps retain the meat’s fluids and enhances its flavor. After the meat has been browned, remove it from the saucepan and set it aside.

2nd Step:

Add the chopped onions and minced garlic to the same saucepan. They should be cooked until they become translucent and begin to emit their aroma.

3rd Step:

Add bell peppers, carrots, and celery to the saucepan. Stir well and sauté the vegetables for approximately 5 minutes, allowing them to mellow.

4th Step:

Return the beef to the saucepan after browning. Stir in the diced tomatoes (along with their liquids) and tomato purée until evenly combined.

5th Step:

Add the paprika, dried oregano, dried thyme, bay leaf, salt, and black pepper to the beef bouillon. To ensure that the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout the entrée, mix them thoroughly.

6th Step:

Bring the mixture to a simmer before reducing the heat to a low setting. Cover and simmer for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the beef is tender and the flavors have melded. Occasionally stir and modify the seasoning as necessary.

7th Step:

After the duration of simmering, add Worcestershire sauce and water to the vessel. Stir to integrate ingredients.

8th Step:

Raise the temperature to medium-high and bring the liquid to a simmer. Once the water is simmering, add elbow macaroni or your preferred pasta. Cook pasta according to package instructions or until al dente. Periodically stir to prevent adhering.

9th Step:

After the pasta has finished cooking, remove the container from the heat. As the goulash cools, it will continue to thicken.

10th Step:

Garnish the Old Fashioned Goulash with freshly minced parsley and serve it steaming. It goes exceptionally well with sourdough bread, pilaf, or pureed potatoes.
