Meh. This was good, but certainly not "great" IMHO. I made this for dinner and halved the recipe for my fiance and I last week. While we both thought this was fine, we agreed it was really lacking in flavor. I guess we just prefer sweet goulash, so the search continues (and there are PLENTY of goulash recipes on here to try!). I must say that prep couldn't be easier (and this dish is relatively inexpensive to prepare too - you don't need top quality meat since it will tenderize plenty if slowly cooked as the recipe directs). As if prep wasn't easy enough... in order to save a bowl, I tossed my salt, pepper and paprika in a large Zip-lock bag, added the meat and SHOOK LIKE CRAZY! I ended up placing my seasoned meat in the fridge for an hour or so, until I was ready to prepare dinner (which I think was a good idea btw...). My only complaint (other than lack of flavor) is the oiliness factor - I suggest cutting back quite a bit on the oil. I also suggest using the BEST Hungarian paprika you can find (I purchased a small amount at my local spice shop relatively cheap). Served over spatzle tossed with butter and fresh parsley, a side salad drizzled with DC Girly Girl's Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette (a MUST try!!!) and caraway rye bread on the side, this was a VERY filling and comforting meal. Thanks for sharing :)
