Baby Beef Recipe Goulash

Thereā€™s no Better Winter Warmer than a Hearty Beef Goulash ā€“ Especially when itā€™s Baby-Friendly

Cold winter days are the perfect time to experiment with stews and casseroles.

And one of our all-time favourites must be the trusty Beef Goulash.

In this baby-friendly adaptation, weā€™re sticking with the proven staple ingredients like carrots and potatoes, but weā€™ve loaded it up with the extra superpowers of pumpkin and sweet potato.

It boosts this baby-friendly beef recipe with an extra dose of vitamins and gives it a rich texture that melts on your tongue.

All up this Beef Goulash takes just under 3 hours, but itā€™s worth every minute.

Our efficiency tip:

Cook a bigger batch and freeze whatā€™s leftover for later. Itā€™s a clever way to maximise the time and effort that goes into a hearty slow-cooked meal like this.

The best way to serve this glorious winter warmer?

Thatā€™s entirely up to you and your munchkin. We love pasta, rice or steamed greens served on the side on our fun We Might Be Sticky Plates. They come with 3 clever sections that will turn this meal into an instant 3-course delight.
