I am not sure why this called Goulash as it is nothing like the Hungarian Goulash that we also ate when I was a child. My mom would make this a couple of times a month for her 7 kids. I am sure that is was cheaper than the Hungarian Goulash, but was well loved and to this day is enjoyed by my family and friends that eat home style meals with us.
