Goulash made simple but tastes Amazing. My family loves this goulash so I promised it would go in the recipe book for my daughters and my son. They all want the daily recipes so they can cook when they leave home. This recipes secret comes from Great Grandma Young. When I was 17 yrs old and just learning my way around the kitchen. I made goulash and it was good. I drained the fat off the meat. And then assembled the remaining ingredients. Great Grandma said "Want to know a secret..Don't drain the fat off it makes for a better goulash" She was right. It tastes so much better.
