Goulash is a delicious and hearty national dish of Hungarians and Czechs based on pieces of beef or veal stewed with onions, peppers, and potatoes. The dish belongs to the category of thick soups. But very often, housewives prepare this dish in different ways, adding new ingredients that give the usual dish a new flavor. It is very important not to spare any spices, garlic and tomato sauce, which will make the meat very soft and tender!

How to cook goulash

Cook Anastasia (anny.cooking) shared a recipe for a delicious meat goulash with gravy, which will turn out to be very flavorful and satisfying, on Instagram.


The secrets of cooking goulash:

1. Don't salt the meat. Salt the finished goulash at the very end. Thus, the meat will be softer.
