Expert Tips

Goulash is a traditional Hungarian recipe of paprika-seasoned beef stew served over buttered noodles and garnished with sour cream. This fast skillet version calls for meatballs and mini lasagna noodles.

To save time, use frozen chopped onion and bell pepper.

For authentic Hungarian flavor, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of paprika to the skillet along with the chili sauce. Garnish each serving with a sprinkling of poppy seed.

Hearty rye bread and deli cabbage salad go well with this Eastern-European-style skillet meal.
