When we were in Munich recently, my husband had a goulash soup at one of the Christmas Markets. I would love to find a good recipe. The beef was so well cooked, it was virtualy shredded. The soup base was thick, but appeared to have been thickened by pureeing the veggies rather than by use of a thickener (like four). There were still very small, identifiable pieces of potato, and perhaps other veggies, but not a lot.. It was not 'hot" in the way some Indian food or Mexican food is hot, but it was definately richly spicy. Sorry -- can't describe it any other way. And of course the wonderfulness of the soup grows with each day he goes without and dreams about it .
Does anyone have a recipe? My only other alternative is just to send him back to Bavaria.
