Here is a recipe for authentic Hungarian Goulash I learned to make from my grandmother and mother who were from Austria-Hungary. Every family has its own version of Goulash. My family would NEVER consider tomatos or green peppers or other spices in Goulash. Some other dishes would have tomato or green pepper, but not Goulash. Slow cooking is the secret and you can never use too much paprika. I like to use 3 tablespoons. Hope you enjoy this dish, I have been raised on it. Regards, June Meyer. Cut beef into 1 inch squares, add 1/2 tsp. salt. Chop onions and brown in shortening, add beef and paprika. Let beef simmer in its own juice along with salt and paprika for 1 hr. on low heat. Add water, diced potatoes and remaining salt. Cover and simmer until potatoes are done and meat is tender. Prepare egg dumpling batter: Add flour to unbeaten egg and salt. Mix well. Let stand for 1/2 hour for flour to mellow. Drop by teaspoonful into Goulash. Cover and simmer 5 minutes after dumplings rise to surface. Serve hot with dollops of sour cream. Serves 6.

Querian 2 years agoAfter returning from Austria I had to try to make some goulash and this turned out very well. Thanks for the recipe!
mpau0516 2 years agoWonderful! The sweet Szeged paprika was hard to find but well worth it. Just like I remember. The recipe didn't need any changes. Only one problem... no leftovers.
cls5569 3 years agoFinally - a REAL Magyar (Hungarian) recipe!!! I, too, have learned from my Hungarian mother and other family members still living there, and this recipe looks more like what I have made all my life!! A few differences of course, as every family has our own unique 'take' on gulyas leves, but this is one that, even though I haven't made it from your recipe, I have made it in my mind, and I know it will be good! My only comment is to make sure that when the beef is cooking in it's own juices with the paprika, before the water is added, don't let it go dry, or the paprika will turn bitter, kn my experience. Also, to those unfamiliar with good Hungarian cooking, do not make such a fine recipe as this without getting good, AUTHENTIC, Hungarian paprika from either Szeged or Kalocsa - Szeged is easier to find, and it is good to mix the sweet with a bit of the hot! You can usually find this at a good grocery, health food, or European store, and it is totally worth the effort!!! The dish will sing with it!!! Enjoy!
