Hungarian Beef Goulash

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (556 votes)

This streamlined goulash skips the step of browning the beef, and instead coats it in a spice crust to give it a rich mahogany hue. This saucy dish is a natural served over whole-wheat egg noodles. Or, for something different, try prepared potato gnocchi or spaetzle.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Sounds good, but I've never had goulash with tomatos in it. Once upon a time had a wonderful recipe, but over the years it's disappeared, and since my memory is far from good I'm sure I'll make a beef soup. What I do remember is AT...

Very good and easy

I made this and thought it was very good. After reading the reviews I took the advice of one and used brown gravy mix instead of the cornstarch.Because I only had basic Paprika,I added 2 TBSP of sugar and some Cayenne.I also used venison instead of beef.I served it over egg noodles with some sour cream .Will make again.

Beautifully done!

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I definitely suggest finding the Hungarian paprika, I could tell a difference in flavor and color! I served it over egg noodles. Would totally make this again!

This isn"t "Hungarian" goulash

I'm Hungarian & this isn't real Hungarian goulash at all. Real Hungarian "gulyas" is more like a soupy beef stew. No tomatoes, & never, ever noodles! It's a very simple soup/stew with beef & potatoes. No other veggies except for the onion base. It's often served with a nice hearty rye.

good flavor

I agree. My Hungarian

I agree. My Hungarian grandmothers would call this paprikash, not goulosh. My family always adds carrots to our goulosh, but other than that I agree with your description.

Great with changes

Definitely needs more spices so I spruced it up a bit by using sazon, paprika, garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt and pepper and a ton of fresh garlic and onions. Also, used flour instead of cornstarch, I like a thicker goulash than what this is supposed to be.

Good base recipe

I made this tonight and as I said above, it's a good base recipe. I followed the directions exactly...with the following changes: for my tomatoes, I used canned tomatoes with Italian spices (it was what I had on hand). I also added some left over roasted red and green peppers with onions from a previous meal. I added garlic salt as well. We ate ours over couscous and I think the flavor combination really made this worth eating. You really have to add a few extras to get a good delicious meal out of it. The beef comes out so juicy and tender from the slow cooker!

Easy, make ahead, crock pot, healthly
