Gingersnap Goulash

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Cook: 2 hours


8-10 serving (2-1/2 quarts)

A friend shared this authentic recipe with me years ago. I think you'll enjoy the extra spice from the addition of gingersnaps. It wonderfully captures the flavor of sauerbraten.


  • 1-1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 12 gingersnap cookies, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bottle (14 ounces) ketchup


  1. In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, combine the first eight ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat is tender. Add ketchup; cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
