Family Favorite - Hungarian Goulash

This dish is one of my families favoite meals.  And, a meal it is.  When my Mom's Mother died some 70+ years ago, one of their Hungarian neighbors prepared this dish for them.  We absolutely love it and everything in it is fresh from the garden.

Veggies all chopped up

After flour and cornmeal has been added

Goulash is ready to eat...ymmmmmm

Hungarian Goulash
5 cups green tomato, chopped
8+ cups red tomato , chopped (needs to be very juicy)
5 cups green pepper, chopped
5 cups onions, chopped
5 cups potato, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1/2 cup flour
1 cup corn meal

1. Mix all of the above ingredients together. Have a iron skillet or teflon skillet (won't brown as nice) very

hot. Melt about 1/2 cup lard or part butter. 
2. Fry on medium heat turning consistently so it doesn't burn. Best if it browns some.
3. Cool about 1/2 hour before eating.

This is time consuming, but so worth it.  Over the years, I  have worked and worked to get mine as good as Moms.   Last week I accomplished it as it turned out just perfect.  This is soooo good!!!
