Beef Goulash Extraordinaire

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by DeSouter

This easy and incredible goulash is hearty and comforting. I spent many a night perfecting this recipe until it was just right. Needless to say, I had many willing taste testers. I do not recommend adding potatoes to this recipe to thicken it, as even the smoothest mashed potatoes make it gritty. If you really feel you would like the gravy thicker, add a loose paste of flour and water and cook until thickened. Serve with buttered egg noodles and steamed, buttered carrots.

This was a big hit....hubby and I loved the flavor and the beef was sooooo tender. I cut the recipe in half, skipped the butter and celery flakes and used regular paprika, since I ran out of the Hungarian. (need to get more of this, since it really has a much better flavor than the regular paprika.) DeSouter this is a keeper for us....thanks
