When I was growing up my mom would make a goulash that my dad
loved more than anything in the world. It was something we looked forward too.
In New England we didn't call it goulash we called it American "Chop Suey"
I've lived in the South and California and no one calls it that. It's known
as goulash. No matter what name you call it. It is delicious.
My mom's version was Italian. I thought I'd do a fun twist on hers. Thanks mom.
