Danish Goulash

I like to make a nice Sunday dinner- usually invoving roast and gravy, rice or potatoes. yum. My mom did it every sunday, her mom did it every sunday and I love the tradition. By the end of the week I'm craving a nice roast and potatoes.
While I was on the hunt for my other meals during the week I ran into this danish goulash, from fam fav recipe blog. It's a lot like my roast recipe but still different. I thought I would try it out- have some variation, but it still feels like a sunday dinner.

We really liked it, Nate LOVED it. The flavors were stronger, and the gravy was great. I might try using milk from now on to make my gravy. NEVER have done that before.

I didn't throw mine in the crock pot, I did it on the stove-top. I let my meat simmer for about an hour and a half. I bought a nice looking steak, and it turned out perfect. not to soft definitely not chewy.

Danish Goulash
2 lbs steak, cubed (stew meat works great) 
salt and pepper 
1 medium onion, chopped or diced 
1 pkg onion soup mix 
3-4 c. beef broth 
4-5 carrots, peeled and cut (or about 1-2 cups of baby carrots) 
1/4 c. cornstarch 
1/3 c. milk
Mashed potatoes (to taste)
Braise beef in oil until just brown on all sides. Remove beef from skillet and set aside. Add onions to skillet and saute until onions become clear. Transfer beef to a *large pot and add onion soup mix, and beef broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about an hour... if you want the beef to be really tender, simmer for even longer. About 20 minutes before serving, add carrots and simmer until ready to serve. Right before serving, add cornstarch to milk and stir until smooth. SLOWLY stir cornstarch mixture into the goulash until reaching desired consistency (you want it to be like a thin gravy consistency). If needs be, add beef broth to thin out and cornstarch to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving. Serve over mashed potatoes.
*You can also throw everything in a crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours :)
