Recipe For Goulash (my family’s version)


With all of the vast information on the internet and despite a cabinet full of cookbooks, sometimes the recipe I want is in the possession of someone else. Today’s recipe for Goulash is just such a case. I had to get on the telephone to get this one ~ mainly because in my zealous “disacquisition” (my word) of stuff, I got rid of the one cookbook that had it in it.

My family’s version and my husband’s family’s version are similar to a point. They both have tomatoes and macaroni. However their seasonings are quite different. My mom opted for cheese or croutons. The in-laws served everything with bread on the side.

  7. We like to serve this with homemade croutons (cut slices of bread into little squares and brown in butter or olive oil).
