This tasted more like a beef stroganoff than hungarian goulash. I was disappointed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 lbs beef (cubed)
  • 6 lbs onions (sliced)
  • 14-12 cup Hungarian paprika (hot or mild, we prefer the hot!!)
  • cooked wide egg noodles


  1. You can adjust amounts -- as long as beef and onions are equal.
  2. Fry Onions until carmelized. Fry seasoned beef until browned.
  3. Using a large kettle, add all ingredients and cover with water.
  4. Simmer until beef is tender. (I usually simmer 3+ hours).
  5. You can use cheaper cuts of beef, since you cook the heck out of it! (as long as it's lean or trimmed really well).
  6. Serve on top of egg noodles.
