Comfort Food

I love Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It’s one of my all-time favorite shows. It makes me hungry every time I watch it. Even if I’ve just eaten. Heck, even if I’m actively eating at that moment. I was watching an episode recently called Seafood and Savory. On it, there was a dish by Chef Alisah called Bosnian-Style Gulash. It sounded amazing! It also happens to have ingredients that are easy to get. So, I decided to give it a try. First things first, I had to adjust the recipe since the original yields 10 servings. Once I did that, I gathered the ingredients and it was time to cook.

Ingredients I used:

1 lb. chuck eye steak

2 sections of the frozen onions

1½ tsp olive oil

½ tsp dried minced garlic

½ cup tomato sauce

1½ tomato paste

8 oz. beef broth

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 tsp dried parsley

½ tsp season salt

2 tsp flour

Cooking directions

I preheated my oven to 300 degrees and cut the beef into small cubes. I then put the onions, olive oil, garlic, tomato sauce, and tomato paste into a pan and cooked on medium heat for about 5 mins.

Next, I added the beef to the pan and cooked that for about 15 mins.

After it had cooked down, I added the beef broth, salt, pepper, parsley, and season salt to the pan and mixed everything together well. I then transferred the mix to a baking dish and put it in the oven for about an hour.

When it was done in the oven, I whisked in the flour and mixed well to combine.

I served it over some basmati rice. It turned out wonderfully.

The dish was delicious! It even had a little bit of spice to it, even though the spiciest thing I added was paprika. The long cooking time really concentrated the flavors and made the dish sing with taste.

I had some the next day and it was just as good after being reheated in the microwave. This is definitely a dish I will be making again.

I love trying new recipes. They don’t always turn out as good as this one, but it’s still fun trying something I never have before.
