I have never used tomato paste. Use the pigs trotter to get the nice gelatenous texture and chunks from the ham. FYI, ham is the hind leg section of the pig

this recipe is very basic and im sure it tastes well, however this is not how most hungarians would exactly make this dish. this dish is not called goulash (Gulyas)in Hungary. This dish is typically referred to as "Marha Porkolt"(beef stew). it generally has less course onion, bell pepper, whole tomato and some like cumin or marjoram.never add water or stock unless the dish is in jeopardy of burning or drying out. cook slow and steady real Hungarian way thats where your flavour developesfrom "time" I cooked in Hungary for 10 years and know authentic!

I wish they wouldn't use 'real Hungarian'. I am Hungarian, born and raised. Goulash (Gulyás) is a soup with beef (gulyás means cowboy, so NO other meat is allowed) carrots, parsley roots, tomatoes, onions, caraway seed is ESSENTIAL, and never ever sour cream. What is recipes show quite close to what is called 'pörkölt', which has absolutely nothing to do with goulash.
