  • To make cooking easier for you and if you don't like making homemade gnocchi dough, buy a ready-made package at the store.

  • If you like a thicker sauce, add another finely chopped onion.

  • You can add some hot spices to this stew if you like hot peppers or crushed hot peppers.

  • The longer you cook the goulash, the softer and juicier the meat will be, like butter.

  • During cooking, do not let your meat burn, always stir occasionally on low heat.

  • After adding the tomatoes, control the thickness of the sauce and add a little water as needed.

  • If you accidentally made a mistake and poured more water than you should. There is a solution, mix 1 Tablespoon of flour with a 70 ml water in a cup, without lumps, add to the stew, mix well and cook for the next 7 minutes with occasional stirring on low heat.

  • Store the rest of the food in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
