How to Make Goulash

When you're in the mood for a hearty meal but want something other than the usual beef stew, why not learn how to make goulash? This Hungarian stew was once the food of poor shepherds--in fact, that's how the dish got its name, which is derived from "gulyas," the Hungarian word for shepherd. Goulash recipes have been around for hundreds of years, and while the dish has meager origins, it's now prepared in even the most well-to-do Hungarian kitchens and upscale restaurants.
