Goulash is one of those meals that brings me back to my childhood. Coming from a big family, it was something that could be made in big batches and there would be enough for everyone, neighbors and cousins included.

Some folks like goulash with meat only while others tend to put pasta or macaroni in theirs. I like to make mine with beef, chopped vegetables and then serve it on a bed of noodles, rice or buttermilk mashed potatoes.

This dish fits in perfectly with bad weather. I tend to make this dish when there is a chill in the air or on a rainy, dreary day. It is great with a glass of red wine. Maybe I love I this meal because it is a good excuse to have wine on a weeknight! Or maybe just because my family simply loves it. Either way, it is hearty comfort food that is hard to resist.

This is a very simple dish to cook, however it does take some time to prepare. I am lucky to work from home so it’s awesome to have cooking in the oven while I am working. It cooks in the oven in the late afternoon and my family comes home to a house that smells delicious, as well as a meal that’s ready to eat.

Sometimes I even make this on a Sunday night to heat up for dinner on a Monday. I will let you in on a little secret. This tastes even better when you reheat it.

If you make this for dinner, you must also have a nice crusty loaf of bread. There is a delicious sauce to mop up, and you’ll want to get every drop. Don’t tell anyone, but I have thought about licking my bowl clean.

Serve a simple red cabbage salad with this dinner if you’d like, and everyone will be happy. If you want, make a double batch, as your family will be asking for leftovers. They are great for lunch the next day.
