hown below, Genuine Hungarian Goulash . This recipe is outstanding as evidenced by the response from the individuals that had some of this stew. We cooked two pots and it still was not enough!

"I was surprised to come across your painstaking preparation off Hungarian Hungarian Goulash and thought that your German friends might like to know about my new book on the famous Hungarian dessert wine...The title is 'Tokajiine - Fame, Fate, Wine... Miles Lambert-Gocs Williamsburg, Virginia".


November preparation of Hungarian Goulash.

Dirk and Gretel brought us a goulash kettle from Bogacs Hungary. They carried it on the plane to America. I had constructed a goulash fire pit and assembly that managed the kettle in advance. In addition, they brought all the Hungarian ingredients needed for the preparation with the exception of the meat.

In Hungary, pork is used as beef is very hard to come by. This was the first time they ever prepared it with beef, as they only prepare it at their home in Hungary, not at their home in Germany.

Dirk informed me that his wife had trouble sleeping the night before. She was concerned that the goulash assembly that I made was going to fall over into the fire.
 

A tripod assembly is usually used in Hungary. I used singular 18", 3/4" pipe which was placed in about 12" of concrete with a union at the bottom to allow the upper 3 foot extension to swivel. This, along with the chain, allowed the pot to be placed at different cooking positions and heights. It worked perfectly.

They were delighted that genuine Hungarian Goulash was being prepared by an individual of Italian descent.
Our Siberian Husky, Tao, in deep thought.

He could smell the goulash, so close and yet so far.

 

Goulash takes approximately four hours to prepare. Goulash is usually prepared in the evenings; for instance on the flatlands known as the Puzska. It is a social event as groups will sit down around the fire and speak of the old days etc..

Our friends walk everywhere when they are visiting. One time we walked to Advance Auto Parts and then across US Route 50 to the Home Depot area. He asked me why there were not others walking. I stated there are no sidewalks and most people that were driving by were most likely thinking, those poor people.
