Old classic fashioned goulash is one of the most delicious old fashioned meals I have ever tasted. I grew up with this recipe, I know the nooks and crannies of this recipe is being prepared and cooked. Old classic fashioned goulash is a hearty recipe that your entire family would enjoy at any night of the week. This recipe is just so different from other recipes, it has a banging taste and aroma, it takes less time to prepare in just less than an hour with just simple steps to follow.

The first time I tried this recipe, I was a bit scared that I was going to make the worst meal, in fact it was to be prepared as dinner for my family. I was scared that if I mess things up, we won’t be able to have dinner and would have to sleep with empty-stomach. I called my mum, she gave me a short description on how to make this recipe, i started and in no time, i was done.

I was surprised at how it turned out just perfect, like I have been preparing this recipe for years. Since then, the recipe has been the go-to meal for my family especially after Sunday thanksgiving service, we just break old classic fashioned goulash just as we broke the bread in church.
