I'll be the first to admit that I used to have no clue what goulash actually was. I've heard it referenced here and there, of course, when the temperatures reach rock bottom and nobody knows how to properly function. Goulash is one of those dishes that, unless you're in an actual Hungarian restaurant or household, tends to fall to the bottom of the list of winter comfort foods.
I'll also be the first to admit that it may just be one of the most unattractive foods that will ever grace your plate. It's goopy, it's bloppy, and I continuously replay the sloppy joe's scene from Billy Madison in my head over and over again whenever I see a plate of this stuff. I'm sorry if that doesn't make sense to you, my brain is a weird place.
But what I can say for certain, is that if aesthetics aren't your thing, and you're looking for a food that will embrace you in warmth, cherish you, and send you a good morning text, goulash is probably a good choice. It's hands down one the greatest things to snuggle up with on the couch with your beau this winter, while binging Making A Murderer.
Because let's be real, you're binging Making A Murderer.
