1. Goulash is a soup not a stew.
2. Goulash has potatoes, carrots, parsnips in it but no tomatoes (definitely not can of chopped tomatoes)
3. You serve it with bread (preferably proper loaf not sliced store bought)
It's a very nice recipe, probably delicious meal however it's not Goulash :) Just wanted to clarify :)
Ps: I'm Hungarian living in the UK, my Mum's been cooking this all my life and I've been cooking it for years too :)
Which is recommended: canola, olive, peanut, sesame, veggie, other?
