Holy Cow! Didn't have to change anything. Completely worth the time it takes to make this. The taste is similar to a Czech goulash I had recently at a European restaurant (but looks different). I will be making this frequently.
Darn! this is good! DH came home from work and said "something sure smells good!" I didn't change a thing, I did cut the recipe in half and it worked great. Make sure and scrape up the meat pieces when sauteing the onions. I think some of the good flavor comes from that. This had just the right spices and I have had lots of Goulash over the years. I did swing by our local German store to pick up some rye bread to go with it. Awesome dish. A keeper. I'm putting this in my top 20 2008 cookbook. Thanks HollyGolighty for posting.
The only change I made to this recipe was adding some carrots, this was a very tasty dish that resembles what I call "beef stew" the meat was very tender and there was plenty gravy so I served this over rice, thanks for the wonderful recipe!
