Hungarian Goulash I Recipe

 

Hungarian Goulash I

Recipe by ENVIRO2

“A spicy way to dress up stew beef. My Uncle Sydney made made this  when we were kids, and we loved it. It is spicy while not mouth-burning! Can be made with cheaper cuts of beef, and comes out very tender. If it gets too thick, add a little water while it’s cooking. Garnish with sour cream.”
