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.
I was born in Hungary, so grew up on Hungarian Goulash. Whilst this may not be what I grew up on, it is still a great tasting stew. I changed it a little, though. I used sour cream instead of water to thicken it and did not use any cayenne pepper, as I did not have any at home. I also served it over plain pasta. My family all loved it, so will make this again, probably in winter.
This just didn't suit our tastebuds. I made the sauce as directed, but only used one pound of stew meat. This meant that there was plenty of sauce, but nobody in my house cared for the flavor of it-- DH and DD just picked the meat out of their portions. These are all ingredients that we use often, so I'm not sure why we didn't like it. Thanks anyway for posting.
This recipe is wonderful! The first time I had it, my SIL used venison. I switch between beef & venison (depends on how good the hunting is)! DH likes it served over rice.
