I have been craving more and more comfort food lately...probably due to my stress level, or something...and goulash was on my list of must-have one day a few weeks ago.
I always tried to replicate my Grandma's goulash, and of course it is one those recipes she didn't have a recipe for...she just made it and it was perfect each and every time.
So I have been trying for a few years to get it right.
This last time I think I hit a winning combination for good flavor and still remind me of my Grandma's from so many years ago.
I always like to eat my goulash with bread and butter.
It is one of the few times that I will just a slice of bread with some delicious butter spread over it.
Really, I do. And I probably eat too much bread, considering there is pasta in this...oops.
