    Johnney's Note:

    I learned to make this dish from a good friends grandmother who was from Austria/Hungary. Every family has its own version of goulash. Their family would NEVER consider tomatoes or green peppers or other spices in goulash. Some other dishes would have tomato or green pepper, but not goulash. Slow cooking is the secret and you can never use too much paprika.

      We really liked this alot and will make it again. I found the instructions to be a bit strange and had trouble understanding what to do with the dumplings. It was a dough that didn't seem to lend well to being droped by teaspoonfuls. I worked around these issues tho and will be making this again as it was a big hit with the fiance. I served it with egg noodles.
