My Hungarian grandmother never put carrots or any vegetables except for plethora of sliced onions. She used beef broth and tomato paste for the liquid after frying stew meat and then carmelizing the onions. She then put it the stew meat in piled on all the onions then poured the broth and tomato paste mixture all over. In the oven for awhile. Served over egg noodles that she of course made earlier in the morning. No sour cream either. I know she put several garlic cloves in the pot but really don’t know what other spices. All I know is I loved it!
I had a very similar recipe for this many years ago, and unfortunately, I lost it after only making this a couple of times. I loved it! I gave it four stars for one reason: one should *never* use low-fat sour cream in cooking. It will adversely affect the texture of your sauce. It will break down and separate. I am OCD about eating healthy; however, when it comes to cooking with sour cream, I insist on using full fat. I am happy to get this recipe. It's exactly like the one I lost!
I agree with another reader, Please leave your debates and cooking processes in another forum. I know personally I read these reviews to see whether or not the person or family enjoyed the recipe after they have made it and eaten it. I need no other information. This sounds good but I will not comment until I have tried it. Thanks!
I agree 1000% with peetzaguy. For all of you Whiny Wandas saying this isn't authentic, it's not real; if you don't like a recipe that is posted on here either (a) don't make it or (b) submit your own version. Every region, in every country makes the same dish differently than the next( Southern Italy makes a dish differently from Norther Italy). Heck sometimes it even goes by a different name. Sheesh! It's not that big a deal.
i made this today and my husband thought it was delicious and i did too so good with sour cream but i don’t think i cut enough onions it said three medium but i cut up two big ones instead and i couldn’t find wheat egg noodles so i used the plain
This might be an okay recipe, but I do agree that to call it "Hungarian" is not exactly accurate. It's also more like a porkolt or paprikas that it is a gulyas. I'm sure it's tasty enough, but the name is misleading.
Very bland and tasteless. Would not make again.
Seriously, those of you with your panties in a wad because this isn't a recipe for gulyas embarrass yourselves. The contributor didn't claim it was a soup recipe. It's goulash which is considered a STEW in this country anyway. Please go look for something else to offend you. Very nice recipe if you're looking for something that will warm you on a cold day and stick to your ribs. I prefer to rate recipes on their own merit rather than any changes, additions, or deletions and this one can stand on its own.
I will try this very soon, from the ingredients I like it very much and like another reviewer my family likes Mushrooms in it as well. I cannot believe how people react to a recipe. Thankfully most are older reviews and I hope for y’all that time has healed the wounds over authentic or not authentic. Tastes differ and have some imagination of your own! Good luck to everyone giving this a chance, sounds like a good base for me.
Great recipe. Some people are confusing Goulash/Gulasch with Gulaschsuppe which is a very different recipe.
