Goulash

Goulash

Some recipes bring up memories and remind us of childhood. This is a favorite childhood recipe of mine. It was I thought a “mom” original, but I later found out that it was a grandmother original. Some of the best recipes are the ones handed down from parent to child. I have modified this recipe to work in the pressure cooker.
