There are many varieties of this dish. The Hungarians cook it a lil different, than the Austrians and Viennese people have their own Gulash recipes going on. So if you order the same dish in Vienna and in Hungary you probably are going to get 2 different dishes. Here I talk about a Gulash based on a Austrian / Viennese Style. It's basically beef broth, Hungarian Paprika powder (it really makes a difference what kind of paprika powder you use.. so don't expect it to come out that great - in Austria we grave that dish - if you substitute the paprika powder with anything you have at home that comes close ). I like that dish cause you can use it in so many ways. We eat dumblings, potatoes, spaetzles (its a german style pasta), Franks, rolls with it and it makes us very happy.
