The aroma of this dish alone is intoxicating! It is probably one of top number one meals to have as back to school commences. On a quiet day with all the teenagers gone, working or away at school, I can put on this Czech Goulash dinner in advance and just let it slow cook on the stove. Also known as Cesky Gulas in Czech.
Cesky Gulas also know as Czech Goulash is basically a simple Hungarian goulash. It is one of the many goulash recipes Czech people have. I am hoping to get a chance to share many different goulash recipes with you as we proceed into the Fall and Winter.

One of my recent favorites other than the Cesky Gulas is the Segedínský Guláš which is a pork instead of beef cooked with sauerkraut. It’s not a sour dish like one would think. The pork is tender with a vibrant but mild taste that pairs well with a beer (pivo). I hope to learn how to make this dish when my soon to be mother in law makes it for my birthday. Would much rather have her cooking then go to a restaurant!
Cesky Gulas is generally paired with houskové knedlíky and a pivo (beer). The houskové knedlíky are bread dumplings made from stale french bread, milk, Wondra, eggs, and baking powder than boiled and sliced to serve. They are wonderful! When we make these the entire family goes wild over them. You must have a good beer with it too. Something stout or with a stinky flavor like Shiner or Pilsner Urquell.
Time after time making this dish to photograph it’s been impossible. The family usually eats it all even the hidden dishes of it that I set aside. This time I made three times the recipe to be sure that I would have leftovers to share with you.
Oh! It’s also better on the second day once the flavors set into the meat overnight. This is a dinner with lunch the next day type of dish. Here is the recipe for the goulash. You can also make this in the instant pot.Print
