Really didn't find much flavor in this, but will make some of the changes that others have suggested and try again

I did a few changes and it tasted great. 1) Added Garlic 2) Tossed flour with the stew meat before browning 3) Mixed Spanish smoked paprika, sweet hungarian paprika, and hot hungarian paprika to taste 4) added whole bay leaves 5) added big chuncks of potatoes and cooked thoroughly (replace noodles)

im hungarian and this is nothing like a real goulash. goulash is a soup, we dont eat it with noodles, we eat it with fresh bread. also hungarians would never use beef broth, we make EVERYTHING from scratch
