HOW DO YOU MAKE GOULASH?
Goulash is known as a quick and easy dish to create and it really is, especially when you use a ground meat, tomato sauce, and pasta combinations.
However, if you want to fix a more traditional Hungarian-type goulash with chunks of beef, plan on at least a couple of hours of simmering for tender meat. It is still a simple meal to prepare but you can’t get the traditional types of goulash on the table within 30 minutes!
Most goulash recipes call for stovetop cooking of the ingredients but anyone with a crock pot knows how wonderful they are for cooking any kind of stew. If you don’t want to or can’t keep an eye on the stove, using a crock pot is a great way to tenderize the meat.
