i have no idea why you call this recipe "Hungarian goulash" ?? because this isn't Hungarian. first i am chef and i am a Hungarian so please let me write the proper ingredients minimum 500 g beef shank 100 g pig fat 10 g garlic 100 g onion 15 g paprika 30 g salt 200 g caraway seeds ground 80 g fresh tomato 200 g peppers (you can collect from any Turkish store this pepper color is light yellow ) 1500g red potato you need around 3 liter of liquid is can be beef stock but this is not really healthy so my suggestion is better you make some fresh veg stock if any one interesting how to make of this ingredients a proper soup please give me a email and i going to explain to you
