With Autumn making it a bit chillier we need food that wraps us up. This is not a traditional Goulash but my version. In the picture I used minced/ground beef but you could used cubed beef, whatever you have. Most of what is in this dish is stuff you would have in your store cupboard/fridge/freezer so it makes it one of those go to recipes.

As usual where spice is concerned what I say is spicy my partner says is mild so adjust spices to your own taste.
