    Irmgard's Note:

    This is my mother's recipe for goulash but I've made a couple of alterations to improve it, such as using beef broth instead of water and real Hungarian paprika instead of Spanish paprika. You can use Spanish paprika if Hungarian is unavailable, but it tastes much better with Hungarian paprika. It is also nice made with stewing veal. When I was a child, I liked this so much that I used to eat it for breakfast if there was any left over from supper!

      this was delicious! i served it over egg noodles, but i also added large amounts of merlot to it while cooking. i also added large amounts of merlot to my stomach, but it was a sunday afternoon, so why not? ;-) it was almost stroganoffy...with the sour cream. but definitely one of the most delicious things i've ever cooked.

      This is one of those recipes where I would give more than 5 stars if I could. It was delicious -- fabulous flavour! -- and the recipe works just as it says it will. I don't have a single quibble: the instructions are straightforward and very simple and this is quite easy to prepare. I followed it exactly as written, with 2 small additions. After cooking the onions (step 4), I added 1/3 cup merlot to deglaze the pan, before I added the meat back in. Then, as well as the 2 tbsp Hungarian paprika, I added a good sprinkle of smoked paprika too (I've been adding it to recipes a lot lately). I served this over Bev's Mashed Potato Pancakes (Potato Pancakes), which I thought worked well. My entire family enjoyed dinner; thanks so, so much for posting this recipe: it's a real keeper.

      My family enjoyed this very much! I added half a cup of red wine and it was wonderful. We had it with mash potatoes. Thanks!
