Hungarian Beef Goulash

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (536 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.

Yummy! Ok, so I have to admit that I didn't actually have caraway seeds so I didn't use those... and I only had Spanish paprika so I used that... and a little tablespoon of sour cream might have also made its way on to my plate (probably totally against the goulash rules)... but I thought it turned out really tasty! My husband even liked it... and he didn't use sour cream :)

Everybody calm down! The definition of "goulash" has gotten to be pretty broad. Even in Hungarian cooking there are variations in recipes. My family is Hungarian to the "nth", and I remember as a child my mother making "Weiner Goulash" when things were tight (which was most of the time). As long as I have my trusty Hungarian paprika handy (sweet and sharp) -- and a BIG spoon -- I deem my dish "goulash".

Frankfurter goulosh was big

Frankfurter goulosh was big in my house also. And I always hated it. LOL. On a recent visit, my father made it for my daughter and she loved it. Too bad she's going to have to wait until grandpa makes it for her again.

Awesome!!
I don't really care if it's real goulash or not, I just care how it tastes. This is a delicious, filling meal I plan on eating again and again.

I liked it. No it is not Real Goulash. But I don't think Eating Well is trying to copy the authentic Goulash. This is just a light healthy version.

I live in Hungary... Hungarian goulash is thin, it is eaten as a soup... not over noodles. Hungarian Porkolt is with noodles... not goulash.
Therfore, don't overdo the cornstarch, as this is not supposed to be thick.
