Finally, a recipe for Hungarian goulash that IS Hungarian goulash. I see so many recipes that as good as they may be are NOT really goulash, This IS. Very easily adapted to your liking by adding more or less of something. But if you follow this exactly you will have authentic Hungarian Goulash



This is a similar recipe to a favorite dish that my sister in law makes. I was recently given this recipe along with a pressure cooker. The main difference was that we use stew beef and instead of 10 hours in a crock pot (I love them too!) we used a pressure cooker at 15lbs for 30 minutes. The beef was really really tender and soooo good. There is a rule though, since i inherited this recipe. You have to drink a big ole' ugly glassfull of wine before you start. then you have to have another while you cook and spill a little in the mix. I love this over egg noodles. Note: to avoid the flour lumps that one reviewer was complaining about, you have to mix water and flour and then pour that into the goulash.



I used ground beef instead of what the recipe calls for (its what I had on hand) and added the egg noodles into the crock pot when it had about 30 minutes left and added about another 1/2 cup of water. It was fantastic! There were NO leftovers!
