I've made this several times and my family loves it. I know that everyone keeps saying that it's not true Hungarian Goulash - I'm Irish and guess what we don't eat Corned Beef and Cabbage. It's just a bad title choice is all.
For the people who don't like the flavor maybe you don't like the Caraway Seeds flavor. I thought it was a little strong the first time I made it and I only use half the amount now (but that's our preference). We like to add carrot slices to the mix and we serve it over Spaetzle.
The beef comes out very tender and we love it.
