Helpful hints

  • Like chicken soup, there are many variations on goulash.  Be assured, it is not a beef stew made with carrots and thickened with flour or corn starch!
  • If you are not on a potassium restricted diet, add a 16-ounce can of crushed tomatoes instead of 1 cup raw tomatoes.
  • You can reduce the portion to 1/2 cup goulash with 1/2 cup noodles if you are on a lower protein.

Cooked this tonight, (12/29/15). It is good other than needing a little salt.
