Watch: How To Cook Authentic Gulyás
Well known as one of the key national dishes of Hungary, goulash (Hungarian: gulyás) is a soup rather than a stew, made of meat and vegetables, as you probably know it's mainly seasoned with paprika - here's how to cook it the authentic local way.

Originating within the historical Hungarian ethnic area, goulash is also a popular meal in Central Europe, as well as 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.
