Hungarian Goulash

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by Viking Knitter

Tried looking for a recipe on recipezaar for goulash, but couldn't find the true thing. This is the real deal. That crock-pot mess with ground beef, tomatoes, and mushy macaroni is NOT goulash. Whoever started that idea or started calling it that should be ashamed of themselves. Real Goulash has NO tomatoes... the red-orange flavor comes from Hungarian Paprika. --adapted from June Meyer's (an actual Hungarian) recipe-- thanks! and to those who are posting nasty reviews, quibbling over semantics... please stop. Thank you.
