When we say goulash, we think Hungary. Historians trace the roots of the hearty stew with lots of paprika to medieval Hungarian shepherd culture. Dating back to the 9th century, Magyar shepherds would simmer meats, onions, and other ingredients with water. Throughout subsequent centuries, goulash migrated into the cuisines of many cultures - variations were created and simmered with local ingredients.
Goulash is a hearty soup or stew with pork or beef, seasoned with sweet paprika and other spices like caraway seeds and marjoram. Originating from medieval Hungary, goulash is an extremely popular meal throughout Europe and many other countries.
In the 19th century, following the split of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Hungarians proclaimed Goulash as their national dish. Served alongside bread (rye is ideal), dumplings, or egg noodles.
We offer classic recipes from Hungary, Poland, Austria and Germany. From North America, a Mexican Goulash and the Classic American-Style (hint elbow macaroni) are featured.
