I found this recipe in a Mastercook group that I used to belong to. It was credited to Dorores Scott and here's what she said.

I have adapted this recipe from one which my maternal grandmother cooked for us. She was Czech but lived in Austria with family friends for a year when she was a teenager. There she learned to cook some Austrian dishes like this goulash.
