Ah, winter holidays. Turkey, ham, casseroles, breads, pies, and cookies. Or in our case, none of the above. Me and my table counterparts are visiting Opa and family for next few days and not once in the planned meals ahead does anything have to do with anything holiday-ish. Expect maybe the cookies. But seriously, who only eats cookies during the holidays? To start off what maybe will become a new tradition of non holiday traditional meals, Opa's Goulash.
As with most meals Opa makes, if the recipe calls for any onion and/or tomato then Rotel is used. Goulash was the same. Giving credit where credit is due, the only other modification made to this entire recipe was venison instead of beef. And I am not sure how much of a modification those two swaps really were in the big picture.
Scaled for Likability: Great
What a fabulous way to start the new non traditional holiday menu. Maybe it was because we worked all day or maybe it was because I didn't have to cook. Whatever the reason, this dish was fantastic and I am not a goulash kinda person. Luckily enough there was enough for two servings of leftovers the next day and let me tell you it was a fight. A fight I did not win. Bummer. This recipe will not be able to make it another 365 days before serving it again. This is gonna be a lunch in the next coming weeks, or two lunches, or maybe even three lunches. Delicious!
