"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."

"Instead of water I used beef broth. I used venision in place of beef and was a great recipe to use venison in. Did need to add more salt, but still worth making again."

"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!"

"The pork and beef together, cooked until fall apart tender, along with the blending of seasonings, was a wonderful dinner for family and guest. It has become a family staple."

"I used sirloin steak for this recipe ( I was splurging), and couldn't be more pleased with its fine, old-fashioned flavor."
