This recipe is brought to you by my sister Chelsea. A few Fridays ago when she and my mother came over for dinner, this was the recipe she requested that I make. Not gonna lie, I was less than thrilled. Goulash? Ehhh. The only thing I liked about this recipe before actually trying it, was telling everyone that we would be having goulash for dinner in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice. Go ahead...try it. It's fun!
Anyway...This. Was. AWESOME!
I have never had a dish that had such an explosion of flavors. Seriously, that's the best way to describe it...an explosion. My mother, who normally eats about as much a my 4 year old and proclaimed loudly for all to hear just how much she hates the spice cumin, wolfed down two bowls!
I absolutely recommend trying this. My sister doesn't eat beef, so the ground turkey was a must for us, but you can always make it with ground beef if that's what you prefer. This dinner has so much flavor to it, and I imagine it's one of those dishes that tastes even better the next day (I wouldn't know since I sent Chelsea home with a crap-ton of leftovers, and Heath ate the rest).
Ok guys, have a wonderful Wednesday! See ya tomorrow!
