I love Chef John's videos. He has a great sense of humor. I've been looking for a good Hungarian Goulash recipe since a friend who used to make it died and I never got the recipe. I'm making this today. Hope it's what I was looking for. Thanks Chef John.

This looks delicious! I would add sautéed fresh mushrooms with the onions. The chef does call his dish "stew" also. This sounds like a good dish on a winter's day.

I'm a Chef John fan (try has halibut with bacon and beans!) and immediately tried this dish the day it debuted. It is both simple and awesome. I can't believe the flavors were so complex yet there wasn't a red wine or anything heavy to add besides a small amount of balsamic vinegar. After a practice first weekend run, this could be made subsequently during weeknights if the cook has 2 hours total - it's very easy and doesn't require constant attention. We didn't have the caraway seed or marjoram, but it was fabulous with Hungarian paprika, the cayenne and thyme. I added some Italian blend in a lame attempt to replace the caraway and marjoram. We dished over some whole wheat fusilli and it was incredible, but tomorrow we will make if with zucchini spaghettini for a healthy kick. I would consider adding carrots and celery next time for some veggies - it definitely wouldn't ruin the dish and would add some healthy veggies to this winter dish!
