Low-Carb Goulash

It's time again for a tasty and healthy low-carb dinner recipe. This time we made a delicious fall recipe: low-carb goulash! You often see this Hungarian dinner recipe as a soup, but also as a stew. We have chosen to make the stew variant.

This delicious stew is super easy to make. Just some carving, the pan on the fire and then enjoy the scents for 3 hours! making goulash Traditional goulash is made from beef, tomatoes, paprika, stock, herbs and potatoes. We have followed the traditional recipe as much as possible. Only the potatoes are not suitable for a low-carbohydrate or keto diet.

We have therefore replaced these with pumpkin cubes. These cubes have a neutral taste and resemble potatoes in both shape and structure. So a great replacement. Our goulash contains only 8.7 g of carbohydrates per bowl due to this small adjustment! Tips This recipe makes 5 small or 4 large bowls of goulash.

The goulash is super tasty to eat with a generous portion of cauliflower rice. The leftovers can be kept in the fridge for a few days or frozen. I hope you like it! For more inspiration, check out our other low-carb fall recipes!
