So the cookbook I’m using describes this as an “Austrian Stew”. I can’t tell if they mean goulash or some other sort of stew. So I’m sticking with just the generic “Austrian Stew.”
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 lbs cleaned, sliced button mushrooms
2 onions, sliced
2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 c. zinfandel or Chianti
14 oz. can of Italian tomatoes
2 c. hot water
1/2 c. plain tomato sauce
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tbsp fresh parsley
1 tsp each allspice, salt and dried thyme
1/2 tsp each pepper, cloves, and nutmeg
Parmesan for serving- or leave out if vegan
1/2 c. brown rice for serving
- Heat oil in dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms and onion, cover, simmer for about 30 minutes until mushrooms are soft and juicy.
- Stir in tomato paste and wine. Add tomatoes and all remaining ingredients. Mix well and cover. Cover and heat until boiling on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Serve with Parmesan and brown rice.

This is my first substitution recipe and it went very well. The only thing I would change next time would be to slice the mushrooms smaller. I wanted to keep them whole to give the effect of eating meat but they didn’t cook all the same way. Oh well, that’s what this is about anyways- trial and error.
The original recipe called for 2.5 lbs sirloin tip and 2.5 lbs chicken or pork spareribs or pork chop. I just used 2 lbs of button mushrooms instead. Also, did I mention that cleaning mushrooms is my least favorite kitchen chore?
