This is really good! I've never had Hungarian Beef Goulash before so I didn't know what to expect. However, this recipe did not disappoint. It is very tasty and has a wonderful flavor from the paprika and marjoram. Delicious with some crusty bread. Thanks for sharing.
Nice recipe. Thank you. I would add only that you can sprinkle chopped fresh parsley on top. And the garlic can be saved until just before serving, and added, chopped to the pot. It will be stronger that way. Depends how you like it. The smell of this dish while it's cooking is lovely!
I made this goulash for a small dinner party on a cold autumn evening - delicious. I didn't use the hot paprika, and added some splashes of red wine to add a bit of complexity to the flavor. I had to simmer it for quite a bit longer than called for -- the beef (I used cubed bottom round roast) wasn't really fork tender until it had simmered about 4-5 hours. I shredded a lot of the beef by mashing the cubes against the side of the pan w/ a fork, because I like a denser stew. I served it OVER the wide egg noodles, didn't mix the noodles in. I hate soggy noodles ;) And of course served with warm crusty bread, and everyone loved it! Thanks for posting!
