    gemini08's Note:

    While goulash originated in Hungary, Vienna made it it's own. Dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, goulash became a staple of Austrian and particularly Viennese cuisine and can be found in any gasthaus throughout Austria. The secret to get this beautiful dark color is to saute the onions until very dark before adding the meat. Use hungarian paprika but don't let it burn, it will get bitter. In Vienna, Gulasch is served either with a fresh kaiser roll or bread dumplings called "Semmelknodel" and many time features a pickle as garnish.Good luck and enjoy!

      Wonderful deep rich flavored goulash! Did keep a close eye on the beef while browning and the house smelled great while this was simmering. Served over noodles and very much enjoyed! Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef - Fall 2012.

      This was the best goulash I've ever tried! Even DH, who is not really fond of goulash, admitted "yeah, more than four stars, and you can make it again anytime" which is a huge compliment! And I'm definitely going to make this again!! Thanks for sharing!
      It was made with Red Cabbage With Apples as a side which made a perfect match for our taste.
      Made for More Than Sauerkraut And Dumplings Tag Game / German Forum.
