lucky star middlecut







  • 425 g can Lucky Star Middlecut
  • 1 large butternut (about 750 g), peeled and pipped
  • Canola oil for frying
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 15 ml (1 Tbsp) chopped garlic
  • 1 red or green chilli, sliced and seeded (optional)
  • 5 ml (½ tsp) paprika
  • 5 ml (½ tsp) ground cinnamon
  • 1 ml (¼ tsp) ground ginger
  • Milled black pepper
  • 410 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 250 ml (1 cup) low-sodium vegetable stock (recipe below)
  • 125 ml (½ cup) low-fat or fat-free plain yoghurt
  • Low-Sodium Stock
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 125 ml (½ cup) parsley, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 5 ml (½ tsp) peppercorns


  1. Low-Sodium Stock
  2. Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer and cook for approximately 1 hour. Cool and strain.
  3. Middlecut & Butternut Goulash
  4. Break the middlecut into large chunks in the sauce with a fork. Discard the bones. Cut the butternut into small blocks.
  5. Heat a few drops of oil in a non-stick pan and fry the onion and garlic until golden. Stir in the chilli, paprika, cinnamon and ginger, and season with pepper.
  6. Add the tomatoes, butternut and stock, cover and simmer gently for about 30 minutes until the butternut is soft. Uncover and cook briskly until the sauce thickens slightly.
  7. Gently stir the middlecut into the goulash with the yoghurt and heat through. Serve with brown rice and steamed vegetables.


This goulash is equally delicious with Lucky Star Pilchards in Tomato.

Butternut’s cousin, the pumpkin, can easily be used in this recipe. Both are family of the gem squash, baby marrow and hubbard squash and are enormously popular today.
