If you need a substitution for the fettuccine noodles, goulash is sometimes made with potatoes or dumplings instead. Additionally, gluten-free macaroni noodles would be most similar to traditional American goulash, if your diet allows it. If you'd like to use potatoes, peel and dice 3 cups of potatoes. They can be any variety you prefer. Boil them in water until softened then strain off the water and stir the potatoes into the finished goulash. To make the dumplings, you'll need a batch of multi-purpose dough (http://www.primalpalate.com/paleo-recipe/multi-purpose-dough/). Dust a clean worksurface and rolling pin with extra tapioca starch then roll out the dough into a large square. It can be as thick or thin as you like but keep in mind the dumplings will puff up a lot when cooked. Use a plastic spatula or plastic knife to cut the dough into small squares. Use the spatula to lift the dumplings off your worksurface and boil them in your choice of broth for about 15 minutes or until they are cooked thoroughly.(You'll need just enough broth to fit all the dumplings in. If you prefer, you can do half water + half broth to save money.) Once cooked, you can strain off the liquid and stir the dumplings into the finished goulash. For gluten-free macaroni noodles, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Once they are cooked, you can stir them into the goulash immediately before removing the heat and serving.
