Friday Flavours: Hungarian Goulash

Fancy a bowl of hot, meaty, hearty and soupy Hungarian Goulash?

Look no further for I am going to share with you a rather authentic recipe taken right out of Hungary, using original Hungarian paprika. I know what you are thinking though – it’s not winter! Goulash is best consumed during winter and only winter.

Hmmm…I do beg to differ on this one.  Goulash is good for anytime of the year; because when you run out of ideas of what to cook, as long as you have the ingredients on hand, anything goes!

Here we go:

  1. I’ve never had goulash, at least that I can remember. It sounds delicious, warm and comforting.

    • Warm and comforting are the right words to use. Especially on winter’s day. You can lose the meat too! ๐Ÿ™‚
