Excellent dish that is worth the time. Patience is key as the boiling and simmering bring out those excellent flavors. I could never find the Hungarian chilis so have used Jalapeno (without the seeds) instead. Very nice flavor! We have found the parsley is not needed. My teenages loved it - and their friends! Need to double the recipe though for a family of 4.
This lightened version of goulash features cubed pork tenderloin that is simmered in a mixture of tomato, onion, beer, and spices and served over egg noodles. The distinctive flavor of the stew comes from Hungarian wax chiles.
