Guláš (Czech Goulash) Cooking Around the World

    Bon appetite! Or, as Czechs say, Dobrou chuť! I realize that I had some catching up to do on our cooking adventure. This fragrant stew paired nicely with our Bramboracky, savory Czech potato pancakes.

    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 C sliced brown mushrooms
    2 zucchini, sliced
    2 lbs cubed beef or pork
    olive oil

    freshly ground salt and pepper
    1 T chopped oregano
    2 C hot beer (why hot!? I don't know...that's what everything I read told me)
    1 T vinegar
    1/2 C tomato sauce

    2 T white whole wheat flour
    2 tomatoes, chopped 

    Heat oil in stew pot then add chopped onion. And cook until the onion is golden. Add cubed meat and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir in tomato paste, garlic, vegetables, vinegar, and beer. Mix thoroughly and simmer about 45 minutes or until tender. Add flour to thicken and stir in oregano.
