I consider the entire family called "gulas" as a Slavic dish. I believe that in the United States, they would be called stews. "Segedyn Gulas" is, in my book more Hungarian than Czech, however, there are different types of "gulas" that I feel are Czech - including "Gulasova Polevka" (Goulash Soup) and regular "Gulas" made with beef and potatoes.

I may be wrong, but that is what I was taught.

then I have to add to my favorite czech meals list at the 4th place: gulas with knedlik (of course drinking a fresh beer, starobrno or gambrinus, for me the best) Laughing

I haven't thought about that in YEARS. I actually liked that soup very much. I don't know if my family would eat it unless I did not tell them what it was made from.

I haven't had that in years either. I tried to make it once, but it just wasn't the same. My mother made a good one, but I don't have her recipe. She took it to the grave with her. Too bad..........

Here is the recipe my mother had:

1 1/2 lb Tripe washed in BOILING water
6 cups water
4 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp paprika (Sweet Hungarian)
4 tbsp shortening
2 cups root vegetables (1/2 cup each -carrots, onion, celery root, parsnips)
3 tbsp butter
pepper (to taste)
salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp marjoram
1 tsp parsley - minced
1 clove garlic - minced

Boil water and salt. Simmer tripe for 2 - 2 1/2 hours until tender. Remove from water. Make a roux by melt shortening in a pan and add flour and paprika - brown LIGHTLY. In a separate pan, melt butter and brown root vegetables. Add to the water the tripe were boiled in the vegetables and the flour. Simmer for 15 minutes. Return strips of tripe to mixture. Add the rest of the ingredients. Let cook at low heat for 15-20 minutes.

Serve with rye bread.

OPTION - add diced smoked meat or sliced hot dogs if you wish (we never ahd that added)

Allspice and bay leaves sound good. I don't remember having any potatoes in the soup, but it's a thought.

Yes, roux, I use it in a lot of things. Smile

Thanks!
