My 14 year old cooked this for our dinner on Thursday night. He did an excellent job!! I know it is not the traditional Goulash recipe - but this was what my mom cooked and called Goulash in our house growing up. Instead of tomatoes from the store, we always used the quart sized home canned tomatoes from my grandmother's garden. A simple, yet very satisfying dish that reminds me of the good times I had with my mom growing up. Definitely, definitely comfort food!
