Have you ever made Hungarian Goulash? If not, then now is your chance to try! If you have cooked Goulash before, you can share your wisdom and cook along too. The idea of the Cookalong is that members cook a classic recipe within a certain timescale and share their experience. Its a bit of fun and a chance to learn. Please join in! This well-known dish has its roots in Hungary. The most common given history for the dish is that it was developed from a beef soup named after the herdsman in Hungary (the Magyar). Beef was cooked and dried out, to provide a portable ingredient. It was then boiled up in water to provide a simple stew. Today, the dish has many variation. Most common is the inclusion of Hungarian paprika and potatoes and some include spaetzels. Although this dish most commonly uses beef, it could also be made with chicken or other meat - and why not a vegan/vegetarian version? There is an interesting article here which compares various Chef’s recipes and includes a final tested recipe. I will also post a simple recipe for Goulash below.
