Goulash comes from a word that means cattle stockman in Hungarian, and this stew will really give a great flavor to the beef.

This recipe is very easy to prepare and will cook for about 2 to 2 ½ hours in the oven or a crock pot.

It's very savory and can easily become a favorite for you and your family. It can safely be called comfort food.

This recipe serves about 2-3 people. I suggest that you make more and that you freeze the leftovers. Prepared stews are always good to have around for the times when cooking is not an option.
