Reviews for Top-Rated Hungarian Goulash
"We are cattle farmers so this is a good recipe to use with the stew meat we have. I used 2 pounds of beef instead of 1 of pork and 1 of beef. I really liked the hint of creaminess that the sour cream gave to the sauce. The paprika taste was a tad too strong for my preference and I thought that the sauce could have been thicker."
"I love making this in the pressure cooker. That way I can use cheaper cuts of meat. A family go-to."
"I have made this many times. I usually brown the meat before I add the onions and cook until the onions are soft. I always double this recipe when I make it."
"We enjoyed this. It will not be bland if you use Hungarian paprika (and don't let your paprika get too old!) I also added more salt than the recipe calls for. Delish!"
"I have never made goulash before and this tasted great! I loved the addition of the sour cream. I tweaked the recipe a bit to feed my family of 6. I used 1 cup of water and 1/2 of beef broth and then added 1/2 cup water to the mixture when I added the sour cream. This makes it have a better consistency I think. I used beef round steak in this recipe and cut it into 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch cubes- they are easier to eat this way. I would also suggest using 3 cups uncooked medium (or wide) egg noodles for 6 people. Overall, very yummy, the whole family loved!"
"This was very good; my siblings, who are very tough critics, really liked it."
"I used sirloin steak for this recipe ( I was splurging), and couldn't be more pleased with its fine, old-fashioned flavor."
