Good authentic Gulasch (german spelling) recipe. There is also a soup, which we always made with oxtail. So the reviewer stating Goulash is a soup is 50% correct. We serve the Goulash with boiled potatoes (Salzkartoffel), rice and spaetzle. Truly a great fall and winter dish. Read More

I was excited to try this recipe as I have not had great goulash since I lived in Europe in the early 90's. I was a bit disappointed as it did not have the wonderful flavor that I remember. The meat was tender and yummy but the sauce was lacking. Read More

This was a good goulash recipe...I love the lemon zest in it. And yes, real goulash (at least the German) has lemon zest in it. I guess the other reviewer was thinking about gulaschsuppe. Thanks! Read More

Wow! Never made this before but it was delish! Had it with ww bread & butter because I could hardly wait to eat it. Loved the lemon. Had to sub cumin & coriander for caraway. I made mine sort of 1/2 stew - 1/2 soup. Oh and lots more garlic. Will definitely make again! update: very flexible and nummy recipe! Read More
