Rib-sticking comfort food. Nice and creamy. Make sure you have the mild sweet Hungarian paprika. It works out best. :)

Well, I'd rather not rate this recipe misleadingly called "Hungarian Goulash" - because it doesn't even resemble what we call "goulash" (or gulyas, to use the original Hungarian spelling) here in Hungary. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about: I'm 100% Hungarian! Although it _is_ true that gulyas has many variations, but this recipe is so far from it that it doesn't deserve the name. From the description, it might a very nice dish - but _not_ goulash/gulyas. It's like football and soccer - both are team sports, that's all the similarities. Sorry, folks!
