Goulash as in Znojmo
Znojmo is a picturesque little town in the south of Moravia, near the Austrian border. It is famous for its “okurky”; its gherkins. If you see a Czech recipe with “Znojmo” in the name, you can be sure there’s gherkins in it. In this recipe for goulash the gherkins are added just before serving, so they’ll stay crisp and crunchy.
Cut the onions and sauté them in oil or butter until translucent. Take the pot from the fire and add the paprika. Quench with water, about 1 l., and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling add the cubed beef. Season with salt and mustard. Let it simmer until the meat is tender.
Slice the gherkins and add them to the goulash, give it a few minutes to warm en serve, with dumplings or boiled potatoes.
