This is my mom's recipe. My brother and I loved it when she made this when we were growing up. My family loves it just as much as we did.

Although this recipe may be tasty it is not even close to real Hungarian Goulash .. We have never used condiments such as ketchup, worcester souce or worst of all mustard in goulash. Please further note, Original Hungarian Goulash is a rich beef soup not a stew .. Hopefully some readers will try and enjoy a true bowl of this wonderful soup.
