Video: How To Cook Authentic Hungarian Goulash (Gulyás)
Well known as one of the national dishes of Hungary, and a symbol of the country, Goulash (Hungarian: gulyás) is a soup or stew of meat, noodles and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices.

Originating within the historical Hungarian ethnic area, goulash is also a popular meal in and in Central Europe, Scandinavia and Southern Europe.

The name originates from the Hungarian "gulyás" - the word "gulya" means "herd of cattle" in Hungarian, and "gulyás" means "herdsman".

The word gulyás originally meant only "herdsman", but over time the dish became gulyáshús (goulash meat) – that is to say, a meat dish which was prepared by herdsmen.

Today, gulyás refers both to the herdsmen, and to the soup.
