This has been sitting on my PS for years. I wasn't even aware how many years it has been since I started it...

Anyway, I finally want to finish this. As I don't know how or if to go on now I'll just call it done. smiley - laugh

Feel free to suggest a better subtitle.

You can call me TC

The one thing I thought I knew about goulash was that it was definitely a no-no to put water in it. All the liquid is supposed to come from the onions. Which version is that? Your recipes seem to use a lot of water.

This is a great dish for a slow cooker by the way.

Well, the original Guylás is a soup so taking all the liquid from onions is impossible. Some use beef broth (or even wine) instead of water, but as far as I know there's always fluid added. Maybe the thing about the onions is something German? Just like Germans think Wiener Schnitzel has to be veal while in Vienna it's usually pork? I have also read Hungarian recipes and they all add some fluid. Some more, some less but I didn't see one without. Some also add fluids several times during the process. Maybe 1l is a bit much but I've never read about using no water at all. I think the smallest amount I found was one glass of water, but I don't know anymore for which amount of meat/onions that was.smiley - huh

Ah, good idea about the slow cooker, I added that.

This is a great Entry - I've heard of Goulash and saw Paprikas mentioned in another Entry, so this is very informative. smiley - biggrin

Great selection of recipes, too smiley - ok

In Gulyas I wonder if you can give an idea of how long it takes for the meat and potatoes to be 'done'

"fry it until it is not pink anymore." - that's a great way of putting it, as I (novice cook) can visualise that smiley - laugh I believe the technical term is 'brown the meat' smiley - chef

I see there are helpful timings in the Viennese Beef Goulash section smiley - ok

I like the bit about the difference between Potato Goulash and Green Bean Goulash smiley - laughsmiley - ok

Could you say a little something about the difference between gulyás and Székely gulyás?

I like the subtitle, and I think the structure of the Entry is good, with the information at the top leading into the recipes smiley - ok

smiley - cheers thanks Sasha

Can't say about the meat exactly but potatoes take about half an hour I guess, I added that.

Should I leave 'until it's not pink anymore' or exchange it for 'brown the meat'.

Well... in fact no idea why Székely gulyás is called like that. I added a sentence there.

Sorry for not looking at this again sooner.

Excellent sentence about Székely gulyás - thank you

Reading it again, I say keep the 'not pink' as it is very clear for novice and experienced cooks smiley - ok The only tiny thing is that in British English for House Style "any more" is still two words ("anymore" is US English).

A delicious Entry indeed! smiley - cheers

Tasty!
Though sadly you’ve revealed that my own version of what I thought was goulash has distinct Austrian tendencies, right down to the dumplings.

Thank you!smiley - smiley
smiley - laugh Well, as I said in the Entry it's no surprise as the Austrians spread their version of goulash to other countries.
