Australian Traveller reader Danielle Delaney cooks a mean meal on the move. Travel Recipe Hungarian Goulash on the Campfire


AT reader Danielle Delaney from Brighton-Le-Sands in NSW cooks a mean meal on the move. 

It’s a simple and tasty favourite that really comes to life when cooked outdoors – especially on one of those cooler mountain camping nights. Make sure the fire has nice coals and throw some rosemary onto the fire when cooking for a nice smoky aroma.

Ingredients //
1kg casserole beef
1 onion, diced
2 Tbs plain flour
2 Tbs Hungarian paprika
3 Tbs olive oil
600ml beef stock
3 tomatoes, large diced
3 potatoes, large diced
Oil, stock or water, extra

Method //
Cut beef into 3cm chunks and coat with combined paprika and flour. Heat half the oil in a thick-based saucepan, shake off excess flour from beef and fry beef until brown. Remove from pan and set aside. Heat the rest of the oil in the pan without burning and cook the onion until soft. Add the remaining flour to the pan and cook through. Add the meat then gradually stir in the stock. Simmer for at least 45min, season to taste. Meanwhile heat a small amount extra oil on a hotplate over the fire and fry potatoes until golden and crisp. Add potatoes and tomatoes to the stew and cook for a further 30min. The stew is ready when the beef and potatoes are tender and the sauce is thick. Serve with fresh crusty bread or sourdough toasted on a griddle pan. This meal is awesome because it can feed quite a few people if needed. Enjoy!
