  2. This was a great basic recipe for goulash, but seeing as how I have to always be tweaking recipes, I made the following changes: Instead of stewed tomatoes I used 1 can of diced tomatoes. I used a red onion as that was all I had on hand. I added a couple dashes of Worchestshire - Read more ...
