When you hear the word Goulash you never think of making it like this. I have made this Hungarian Goulash for years and I always serve it over hot buttered noodles…..so good! Ok to be honest, I mix the hot buttered noodles and saucy beef mixture together so that every single noodle is covered in that delicious sauce! This is made completely on top of the stove and it is such an easy meal to prepare. This was another hit with the Grandkids!
You will never guess where I found this recipe all those years ago. It was in a book called BEST RECIPES by Ceil Dyer. I am sure some of my followers may have this book too, it is very popular. If you ever come across it, buy it immediately. It features all the best recipes from the backs of boxes, bottles, cans and jars. This original Hungarian Goulash recipe was first published in the Pet Gold cookbook back in 1932.
In a large, deep frying pan over medium
heat, brown the beef in the oil.
Mix together the flour, paprika,
salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Add the mixture to the meat.
Stir to cover the meat with the dry mixture.
Add the onion, tomatoes and
water, stirring to combine.
Bring to a boil then turn to a simmer.
Cover, cooking for one hour
and stirring occasionally.
After one hour goulash will look like this.
Add the evaporated
milk and mix well.
Stirring frequently, simmer
uncovered for 15 minutes.
Serve over hot buttered noodles.
