German Goulash

Sandy Griffin


This is my version of goulash actually. Tonight I took the time to write down what I do for you and my family. I hope you enjoy. My neighbor that is Swiss said it tasted like her grandmother made and she loved it. :-)

Yum! This German goulash is comfort food at its best. This simple dinner is filled with rich and tender beef, red pepper and onions. The meat is cooked low and slow in a savory brown gravy that tenderizes the beef as it cooks. That makes the beef so succulent. If you don't have spaetzle, egg noodles are delicious with this easy goulash recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
