Having lived in Hungary, this recipe should *NOT* be listed under Hungarian cuisine! This is basically an American recipe. True Hungarian Goulash has many more ingredients (including a Hungarian staple...paprika) and is more soup-like with an amazing broth.

Just like we had when we were kids! I used 2.25 lbs of beef and a lb of elbow turned out great! Will add a can of kidney beans next time!

Very good and filling! I always add some vegetables (usually carrots and green pepper) because otherwise it's a little too much meat, but this is a great base recipe. It has become part of our regular rotation. It also makes a TON of servings! I also leave out the garlic, because you can't even taste it.
