Authentic Hungarian Goulash (Gluten-Free)

grandma’s Hungarian goulash recipe…
Growing up in eastern Europe, in our home Hungarian goulash was a weekly meal. Whether it was served as a soup or a thick stew, it always made everything better.
Hungarian goulash is often served with pasta or rye bread. Since our home has been converted to an exclusively gluten-free kitchen, I serve the warm and cozy goulash with my home-made gluten-free rye bread.
My grandmother was Hungarian and she loved the stew with pasta. This Hungarian recipe goes way back in my family. My grandma, I called her “oma” made the best Hungarian goulash by far. She learned the recipe from her grandma, thus naming this stew “Authentic Hungarian Goulash”
She often told me when there wasn’t enough meat to go around during the war, the thick meaty goulash stew was served as a soup. This is where the sour cream comes in.
When the soup didn’t have that much meat, the sour cream was added at the end to make the soup creamier and heartier. And, there was always rye bread that made everything heartier.
what makes the Hungarian stew so delicious?
There are a few ingredients that make this beef stew outshine the others. First, there are the spices; Hungarian paprika, caraway seeds, marjoram and bay leaves. Then, the tomatoes, vegetables and when available red wine.
The stew is slowly simmered allowing the beef to infuse the broth with robust beef flavour. This beef dish is not complicated, but it is exceptionally flavourful
