Brett Kinkel: Classic German Goulash

2 lbs yellow onions (about 6-8 medium onions)

2 lbs lean beef (veal or trimmed chuck is best)

3 cloves garlic

1 tsp caraway seeds

2 tsp dried marjoram

2 tbsp sweet paprika

1 ¾ cup beef broth

2 bay leaves

1 tsp kosher salt (plus more to taste)

¼ tsp ground black pepper (plus more to taste)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (if cooking in the oven rather than finishing on the stove)

  3. Heat the butter in a Dutch oven or oven-safe pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 30 minutes
  4. In the meantime, trim the beef of any fat and sinew, then cut into 1-1 ½ inch pieces. Set aside
