This has such lovely color, great ingredients, and delightful aroma. I loved it, but my hubby and kids thought otherwise (sorry!). I'm enjoying the leftovers, though! I used pork roast instead of butt which cooked up nice & moist. Didn't use HOT paprika (didn't have it on hand, and our rural grocery store doesn't carry such "exotic" ingredients!!!). Used home-made tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes. Yummy! We served it alongside/over/with buttered egg noodles. Funny story: When I was growing up I DREADED the words "We're having goulash for dinner..." because my mother's idea of goulash was dumping all the leftovers in the fridge into a big pot. I'm happy to tell you, that your recipe has erased all those horrible childhood "leftover" memories! In fact, it's lunch time---I'm off to have another bowl of goulash!
