Christa's Goulasch
with Kartoffel Knödel (Potato Dumplings)

My mom used to make this in her Restaurant in Germany. was more beef , onions and broth like...brown Soupy kind of thing, but it was spicy...the Hungarian Paprika was spicy...if you can't find Hungarian Paprika you could use red Pepper. Everyone loved that soup and you had to eat bread with Dad worked with a Hungarian and he came and showed her how to make it.
