A Word From The Cook

“Hungarian Goulash is a rich and slightly spicy stew popular in central and southern Europe It's similar to beef stroganoff in its preparation,except that its flavor profile features paprika, tomato, and mushrooms, rather than the brown gravy typical of stroganoff. This goulash is a winter warming meal!”
