Hi, the recipe sounds good, but its not a gulyás (in hungarian). Sour cream never used in gulyás. :) and if you would like to use wine please use dry red wine never white!

This came out excellent! The meat was so tender and all the flavors blended well together...I, like others subbed mushrooms for the potatoes...I served it over spaetzle...thanks for posting the recipe...=)

This was really amazing! I ended up using shallot in place of onion and red wine instead of white and just left out the potatoes completely and threw in button mushrooms instead. The sauce was delicious and everything was tender and melt-in-your-mouth fantastic. I'll be turning to this recipe often in my new pressure cooker. Highly recommend!! Thanks so much for sharing!
