Home Made Hungarian Goulash.

Thanks for the comments on my last post and also for reading it.  Following on from last post.  We decided to have a go at making Hungarian Goulash  yesterday.  Here you are:


This is is said to be a traditional meal that can be either a soup or stew.  It's said to have it's origins from the Hungarian cattle and sheep herder's who lived in the Hungarian countryside.  So it can be made with mutton or beef.  I believe in Germany they make it from sausages.  I love Paprika and I think it gives a bit of thump instead of plain beef stew.  I found the recipe on the BBC Hairy Biker's Recipe page.

I would love to visit Hungary one day.  One of my favourite (seen them 4 times) English rock bands is Jethro Tull.  One of the songs from the Crest Of A Knave album is called Budapest.  Thanks to You Tube and the kind folk who put these videos on there.    Anybody else like Jethro Tull?

  2. Hi LA. I wish I had seen Leonard Cohen when he played Ireland. I often play him. He was a poet and a singer and a novelist. A great man.

  3. You can add dump fried egg on top and a gherkin or two on the plate and a hot dog sausage and call it a 'zigeuner goulash'. But I just read something in a museum that said it has been decided that the word 'zigeuner' is no longer politically correct, so I don't know if restaurants over here will have to rename it 'romany goulash' or something along those lines in the future, but for now 'zigeuner goulash' is on the menu. My favourite 'kartoffel' (potato) goulash will have no such problems.

  5. I prepare a similar dish from my Czech & Slovac cookery book, but it is made with chicken and bacon (instead of beef) and paprika and tomatoes and red peppers. It is recommended to be served with potato cakes and dumplings. I like Jethro Tull and Leonard Cohen.

    1. I found book in the library a few years ago. I noted that lots of the recipes are cooked with lard so had to have it! I bought my own copy and now use several recipes from it, quite like my mum's cooking, simple and tasty.

      Just watching Belgium and Estonia,should be a good win for Belgium. Thanks.

    1. Hello Anonymous. Good to know they like Tull in the states. My favourite American band is Kansas. I actually got to see them in Poland in 2014. Never believed that I would ever see them. They didn't disappoint. Thanks for your comment.

  8. Looks good. I remember cooking goulash years ago when I was being taught to cook by my mother. Trouble was the cut of meat she gave me to trim out was a breast of lamb. Took hours just to get the meat ready!

  9. Thanks Kev. Good on you for having the patience to trim the breast of lamb. I always get told that I use every pot and pan and cutlery when I cook.

God will continue to bless you Dr. Kham more abundantly for the good work you are doing in people's life by curing them from different types of diseases. I will keep on testifying about your good work. I was diagnosed with herpes 6 months ago and my doctor told me that there is no cure. I did not believe him and I keep my faith up hoping that one day I will be cured from this horrible disease. One day I saw a post on the Herpes Virus Blog forum about a herbal doctor called Dr. Kham on how he cures people from diseases with his herbs and I quickly contacted Dr. Kham on his email explained my problem to him and he told me not to worry that he is going to cure me and truly he prepared the cure and sent it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to take it. After two weeks of taking the herbal Medication, I went to my doctor for a checkup and my results showed Negative and my doctor told me that there is no trace of herpes in my body and the virus is completely gone from my body. Everybody at the clinic rejoices with me and they all ask for Dr. Kham contact.

  11. How Herbal Medicine Cured me completely. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural supplements and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. My Diabetes was totally cured with natural herbs. Earlier this year I was diagnosed type 2 diabetes and my blood sugar was very high, I was recommended to use insulin medication which later have side effect on my health, I decided to stop using insulin medication and was recommended to use Herbal medicine after I read series of testimony of doctor ELINFOH Herbal medicine on the internet, bloggers site and radio stations, I purchased Dr.ELINFOH  herbal medicine for diabetes which he sent to my address through a delivery company and I received the herbal medicine within a couple of weeks  and the doctor directed me how to use the herbal medicine for 21 days. After concluding the herbal medicine I decided to go for a blood test and my blood sugar was detected to be normal, Today I am diabetes free with no side effects. Contact Dr ELINFOH  via  email: drelinfohherbalhome@gmail.com  or Call/Whatsapp +2348110492072 for more information. He said he has herbal remedies for; Hepatitis, Kidney diseases, Heart diseases, Cancers, High blood pressure, Fat reducing, Infertility, Lyme diseases, Herpes Virus, Cold Sores, Shingles, rectum diseases.
