    Viking Knitter's Note:

    Tried looking for a recipe on recipezaar for goulash, but couldn't find the true thing. This is the real deal. That crock-pot mess with ground beef, tomatoes, and mushy macaroni is NOT goulash. Whoever started that idea or started calling it that should be ashamed of themselves. Real Goulash has NO tomatoes... the red-orange flavor comes from Hungarian Paprika. --adapted from June Meyer's recipe-- thanks!

      Wonderful to see the real thing - with the dill pickles!! This is the same as my recipe, so I KNOW it is great-tasting. I also make it with pork or chicken. Thanks for posting, DHD!

      THIS IS NOT "AUTHENTIC" GOULASH!!<br/>Gulyasleves is a soup. It does not, under any circumstances, contain dill pickles or sour cream!! While this recipe is a bit closer to the real thing than the American macaroni mess that is paraded around as 'goulash', it still is NOT the real thing, so please don't call it authentic because it makes Hungarians like myself cringe!<br/>True Hungarian gulyas is a soup made with beef or pork stew, onions, garlic, carrots, parsnip, potatoes, caraway seeds and of course paprika. It is served with homemade csipetke, which is pinched noodles.
