Yes, Gulyás (in English Goulash) it was what the shepherds made while in the field tending sheep along with their puli dogs. Using a cauldron over open fire, meat (usually pork) and whatever root vegetables they had on hand spiced with (lots of) red paprika and salt. Stirred till the stew was thick and well done.
No bean sprouts, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots (the Hungarian shepherds never heard of them) or noodles went into the gulyás.

We called it American Chop Suey in NH and was served at school and home.

A pound of hamburger.
One onion minced. Brown together.
One green or red pepper browned with above
Add...One can of tomato sauce and one can of tomatoes
Elbow macaroni
Also the mustard and Worcestershire sauce
Some added brown sugar and some didn't. Depends on how acidic the tomatoes were. But with only a tablespoon
Top with grated Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese.

So very close to Gracie's
Life is to short to drink cheap wine.
