If you’ve never had Goulash before, you’re in for a real treat. This is the traditional way to prepare a Hungarian style Goulash, with tender chunks of beef stew meat and lots of paprika in a rich, tomato-based sauce. The egg noodles just might be my favorite part.

This is the kind of dinner that I like to whip up in the middle of the week when I need a pick me up. It’s great because the sauce comes together quickly on the stove, and then you let it simmer for 20 minutes before starting on the noodles. While the sauce simmers, the beef gets really tender, and you have time to sit down and relax for a minutes after a long day.

After the sauce finishes cooking, you stir in some sour cream, which gives the dish a lovely richness in texture, but it really brightens everything up! If you’re a sour cream lover, serve the dish with a little extra dollop on top. You won’t be sorry.
