I am looking for a good Goulash Recipe. One that isn't bland tasting. If anyone has a great recipe they would like to share I would love to try it.

There are a couple good ones on www.ramblingspoon.com (04/06/2007)
- 2 pounds beef chuck

Here is a recipe for authentic Hungarian Goulash I learned to make from my grandmother and mother who were from Austria-Hungary. Every family has its own version of Goulash. My family would NEVER consider tomatoes or green peppers or other spices in Goulash. Some other dishes would have tomato or green pepper, but not Goulash. Slow cooking is the secret and you can never use too much paprika. I like to use 3 tablespoons. Hope you enjoy this dish, I have been raised on it. Regards, June Meyer.
Cut beef into 1 inch squares, add 1/2 tsp. salt. Chop onions and brown in shortening, add beef and paprika. Let beef simmer in its own juice along with salt and paprika for 1 hr. on low heat. Add bay leaves, water, diced potatoes, black pepper, and remaining salt. Cover and simmer until potatoes are done and meat is tender.
Prepare egg dumpling batter:
Add flour to unbeaten egg and salt. Mix well. Let stand for 1/2 hour for flour to mellow. Drop by teaspoonful into Goulash. Cover and simmer 5 minutes after dumplings rise to surface. Serve hot with dollops of sour cream.

This is an adaptation from my mom's receipe and you can make it stove top in a large skillet. I have a husband who grew up on authentic Hungarian goulash (his parent's are from Germany) and it passes his test too. Enjoy! Ground beef (as much as you want to make---1 lb min) 1 diced green pepper 1 diced med white onion 1 sm can tomato sauce 1 can tomato soup 1 soup can water 2 cloves fresh minced garlic pepper to taste salt to taste elbow macaroni--approx 1/3 as much as beef
-cook macaroni and drain while browning ground beef until light pink over med heat
-drain 2/3 liquid off ground beef
-add onion, green pepper, tomato soup, water, tomato sauce, garlic, and spices and simmer together frequently stirring over medium heat until onion and pepper tender.
-lower heat to med low and add macroni and stir until throughly mixed and macroni takes on sauce color
I serve with a loaf of oven heated garlic or sour dough bread. Great the next day reheated too.
