  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, sliced and divided
  • 2 pounds boneless chuck roast, cubed in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pounds pork tenderloin, cubed in 1-inch pieces
  • 2 pounds plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1 cup zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup red wine (optional)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander seed

Cheese Dumplings

  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) mild Cheddar, finely shredded
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Goulash: Melt butter in a pan. Then, add onions and garlic to the pan and sauté until transparent. Trim any excess fat from chuck roast and pork tenderloin. Brown meat in butter with onions and garlic. Do not overcrowd the meat in the bottom of the pan. If necessary, brown meat in batches. When meat is cooked, remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add second tablespoon of butter to pan and sauté tomatoes and remaining garlic. Cook tomatoes until soft. Add tomato paste, carrots, zucchini, meat, red wine, water and spices. Cover and let simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Stir in shredded Cheddar cheese just prior to serving.
  3. Cheese Dumplings: Combine flour, baking powder, salt and Cheddar cheese in large bowl. Mix together egg and milk in measuring cup. Slowly pour liquid into flour while stirring batter. Batter should be stiff and sticky.
  4. Dip teaspoon into stew liquid to keep batter from sticking to spoon. Scoop a small amount of batter into teaspoon and drop onto top of stew. Allow room for dumplings to expand. Cover to cook.
