Ben's Hungarian Goulash

Helaine Norman


I ordered this dish in a kosher restaurant in Boca Raton, FL. I liked it so much I asked for the recipe and was unexpectedly delighted when the chef came to my table and gave me the recipe as I wrote it out on a napkin. I came home to make it soon afterward. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
