I love this beef goulash recipe, because it's basically just a revised version of our yummy beef stew.
It really isn't much different, as far as ingredients, prep and cooking time, but the flavor of the sauce is quite different, especially if sour cream is added into the sauce at the end.
The tomato base gives it an extra special flavor, so if you and your family love beef stew but get tired of having it very often, this is a great way to mix it up a little and keep your routine intact!
