This was wonderful. I've been trying to duplicate my mother's recipe for years and this came closest to hers. I did start with about 4 slices of bacon, cut up, and only half the butter called for. And added 2 cups of sliced fresh mushrooms with the tomato paste, etc. Really delicious served over egg noodles.

I would not change anything, I make this soup all the time. You can also put some Potatoes in at 2. but might add a little more water. In Austria this Gulasch soup is a tradition in Restaurants. Excellent,
