This recipe is for those days - usually at the end of the month;-) - when there is not enough money left in the pocket to buy some 'real' meat for a pot of goulash. An inexpensive piece of sausage and some potatoes create a delicious and filling meal for the whole family. Tip: make a big pot - it keeps well in the fridge and it gets better every time you heat it up. —Raudi
