There are a lot of different recipes for Hungarian Beef Goulash, but this is our version -- we've made it many times over the years. I'm glad I can store the recipe here now -- my tattered old recipe card has seen better days.
Combine flour, sweet paprika, salt, hot paprika and black pepper in resealable plastic food storage bag. Add 1/2 of beef. Seal bag; shake to coat well. Repeat with remaining beef.
Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven over medium heat. Add one-half of beef; brown on all sides. Transfer to large bowl. Repeat browning with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and remaining beef; transfer to same bowl.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same Dutch oven; add onion and cook 8 minutes or until tender. Add minced garlic cloves and cook for 2-3 more minutes, stirring often.
Return beef and any juices to Dutch oven. Add broth, tomatoes with liquid, water and marjoram. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender, stirring once.
When meat is tender, stir in noodles and bell pepper; cover. Simmer about 8 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring once. To serve, ladle into 8 soup bowls. Dollop with sour cream.
