goulash -

Goulash (Hungarian: gulyás [ɡujaːʃ]) is a decoction of meat and vegetables added with bell peppers and other spices. This food comes from the Hungarian Empire in medieval times and is now a popular food in Central Europe.

This food comes from around the 9th century and was originally a stew eaten by Hungarian pastors. In those days, cooked and seasoned meat was dried with the help of the sun and put into a bag made of sheep's stomach, and needed only water to feed.

Goulash initially did not use paprika because new peppers were brought from the Americas to Europe in the 16th century. This food is one of the national food of Hungary and the symbol of the country.
