Serve your goulash with rice, boiled potatoes or crusty bread on the side to sop up all those tasty juices.

The Origins Of Goulash

Goulash is a soup or stew of meat, noodles and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices.

Originating within the historical Hungarian ethnic area, goulash is also a popular meal in Central Europe, Scandinavia and Southern Europe.

Its origin traces back to the 9th century. The cooked and flavoured meat was dried with the help of the sun and packed into bags produced from sheep's stomachs, needed only water to make it into a meal. It is one of the national dishes of Hungary and a symbol of the country.

The word Goulash comes from the Hungarian word Gulyás pronounced almost the same only with no L, which is a word for a Hungarian Herdsman or Cowboy. As the herdsman would go on cattle drives they would butcher the weaker cows that may not make the drive and make a stew or soup from them. The plains of Hungary were the perfect place to raise cattle. As the herdsman would go on cattle drives selling their famous Grey cattle all over Europe, they would butcher the weaker cows that may not make the drive and make a stew or soup in a kettle over an open fire for all the gulyas (herdsmen).
