Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef chuck — For a more tender result, choose well-marbled beef chuck and cut it into evenly sized cubes.
  • Chimichurri sauce — If you can't find chimichurri sauce, you can make your own by combining fresh parsley, garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a richer flavor, marinate the beef cubes in red wine and chimichurri sauce for a few hours before cooking.
  • Serve the Argentinian Gulyás with crusty bread or over a bed of fluffy white rice to soak up the delicious sauce.
  • Feel free to add additional vegetables like carrots or potatoes for extra texture and flavor.
  • If you prefer a thicker stew, you can mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with cold water and stir it into the stew during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and enjoyed the next day, as the flavors will continue to develop.
