I was tempted to post what I is a common mid-west dish that somehow they call “goulash.” Ground beef, stewed tomatoes, elbow macaroni, shredded cheddar, and maybe a dash of paprika that has been in the spice drawer for 20 years, but I was afraid someone would take me seriously.
In college I was “adopted” by my best friends parents who were Hungarian immigrants who left the revolution with only one suitcase. They seemed to love feeding me home grown peppers that would blow my socks off and then after laughing toss me a beer to cool the fire. The other thing they seemed to love to do is feed me some amazing food. I actually have very fond memories of them for both.
I’m sure I could Google something, but it wouldn’t be the same. As the weather is chilling I would love to have some good Goulash again if anyone would care to share a recipe.
I’ll just direct you to my post 18 of that thread, which in turn directs you to two recipes I posted with photos and detailed notes on another site for two Hungarian goulash dishes. I make goulash, both the stew that is known as pörkölt in Hungarian and the soup known as gulyás or gulyásleves. If you have any questions, ask away.
