Goulash (Gulyás in Hungarian, which originates from the word "gulya" meaning herd of cattle) is a food originated in Hungary. Other names: Croatian gula, German Gulasch. In some regions of the United States, the term goulash can be used interchangeably with hot dish and casserole.
It is hard to find a good gulyás in Hungary, and it is close to impossible to get one outside Hungary. What people now refer to as "Original Hungarian" Goulash could be anything containing beef and various vegetables, sour cream or any kind of pasta; naturally these show no real similarities to Hungarian Gulyás. The Hungarian Gulyásleves is really a soup and the food that most outside of Hungary call goulash is really closer to the Hungarian Pörkölt (called stew in English). Gulyás is much easier to cook and requires less attention, thus it fits occasions when there are many hungry people and a busy cook.
