If I search Goulash in Google and Yahoo Chinese dictionary, I will get the only explanation - "Hungarian" stew meat, which is not totally correct. Of course, the name Goulash originates from Hungary, but after time to time, different countries developed their own recipes. 

I tasted the very rough Goulashes on the flight and Berlin, and homemade creamy goulash in Bavarian. The Slovenian style offer some sweetie taste. And the Prague meaty style goulash was the tastiest and most unforgettable : )
