I was excited to use my new Penzey's Hungarian Paprika in this recipe. It smelled amazing and had a vibrant red color to it. When I got home from work the entire house smelled good. The goulash was a reddish brown color and thickened easily when I added in the flour. We spooned it over the egg noodles and served it with some dinner rolls. The meat was super tender and the sauce was thick and flavorful. It was a delicate combination that made my mouth water!
