This is not your regular goulash. There is a hint of garlic to the dish and a thinner sauce that brings a sweeter taste to the brisket. The meat is tender and the noodles a bit firmer when served. The flavors blend together to bring a delicate taste to the dish. When mushroom, scallions and sour cream are added this dish becomes a complete meal. Enjoy!
