    lucid501's Note:

    This recipe comes from a cookbook called Anniversary Slovak-American Cookbook, published in 1952. This goulash tastes just like the goulash I ate in Prague.

      Not really the greatest. It will do in a pinch, but it's not authentic Czech Goulash (I am Czech, born in Prague). There isn't even MARJORAM in this recipe, which is a MUST in Czech Goulash. There is also no green pepper in Czech Goulash and one onion isn't nearly enough.

      I followed the recipe almost exactly (with the addition of some garlic) and it came out delicious. It was falling apart with just a fork and the onions caramelized perfectly. Thank you.

      This is a good recipe. I used a 1/2 of an arm roast that I cubed up. We served this over mashed potatoes, but I want to serve over some tiny dumplings next time. This is a nice recipe, thank you for sharing with us.
