Goulash is a sort of stew with meat (usually beef or lamb) and vegetables. It is popular in many parts of Europe, and is also the national dish of Hungary. Since the weather up here has been turning for the cold, a stew would be great for a cold night in, which to us, would be almost every single night. Goulash can be eaten with pasta, rice, bread, or bread dumplings. It is a very versatile dish and you can add anything you want in there.
