Venison goulash with corn porridge

Goulash is a 9th century medieval Hungarian dish, originally eaten by shepherds. It’s a stew made from meat, vegetables and paprika, although paprika wouldn’t have been added until its introduction in the 16th century.


This recipe is based on the North African poached egg dish, but with added sausages and beans – to make a great breakfast or brunch.


A traditional British food, originating in Birmingham. We used to have these as a kid, but they were always shop bought.

I don’t remember particularly liking them, but as with most things – I now love them.

Serve with either mash or chips, peas and lots of gravy.
