I was thinking mash, but lots of recipes seem to suggest rice, noodles, gnocchi..... TIA

Goulash is a regular here. I always do rice. Soaks up all the lovely sauce.
DS1 makes it for his flatmates at uni in a slow cooker. (I think students eat rice or pasta with everything).

I would serve rice, or pasta such as tagliatelle.

I serve it with hunks of crusty granary bread and thick slices of a good mature cheddar.

dumplings. Rib sticking.

I was going to say dumplings or cheese/savoury scones, mash would also be a winner with me - pasta/noodles not so much, but rice would be fine.

I switch between mash and rice - would do dumplings too if rest of family ate them!

Ihavebrillohair - that was one of the recipes I have open on the side here - tagliatelle and poppy seeds!

Thanks all. Not mash then! Love the idea of noodles...

I do love a dumpling.... bit different as well.

My DS1 doesn't eat potatoes so we need to be inventive if we are all going to eat the same mea, hence we have quite a lot of things with dumplings/doughballs, savoury scones, pasta, noodles, rice, Yorkshire pudding etc. Goulash/Stew/Casserole/Mince are all great with those but as I say, Noodles/Pasta would be at the bottom of the list with Goulash.

Would you mind sharing your best recipe have been looking for a good one!

My aunt used to make Nokedli (sort of wee noodle / dumpling things) for my Hungarian uncle to go with Goulash and Paprikash. She would push the dough through a special colander type thing into boiling water to make them. I just serve with crusty bread.

This is mine, simplified for DS to cook.

Cornflour to thicken

1.Put onions ,peppers, chilli and paprika into a large casserole dish

And what on the side in terms of something green on the plate???

poocatcherchampion Thu 15-Oct-15 17:53:52

Dumplings but I'm now thinking gnocci would work.

IfIToldYouIdHavetoKillYou Thu 15-Oct-15 18:00:28

My children are now 17 and 19 and I no longer feel obliged to serve green bits with every meal wink.

Lemonfizzypop Thu 15-Oct-15 18:03:23

Some lovely crusty rolls or toasted sourdough
