I hear you ~ “Who in the world is Walter Slezak?”
Were you a fan of Victoria Lord’s on One Life to Live? Not that I ever watched it. Way back, when the boys were young, I was into General Hospital (the days of Luke and Laura) and Days of our Lives ~ like the sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives...

Anyway, Victoria Lord was portrayed by Erika Slezak, the daughter of Walter Slezak. Walter appeared in many Hollywood movies, usually as a villain or thug, but occasionally in a lighter role, as in “The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm. I’m guessing you’d have to be about my age to barely remember him…

And exactly what he has to do with frankfurter goulash, I have no idea. I just stumbled across this recipe on the Internet and since it’s different, thought I’d give it a whirl.
Frankfurter Goulash ala Walter Slezak
3 tablespoons oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (14½-ounces) can Del Monte Diced Tomatoes, drained
1 (10-ounce) cans Rotel Tomatoes with Green Chiles
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
Seasoned pepper to taste
½ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon mustard
8 frankfurters, sliced ½-inch thick
2-3 cups white rice, cooked
In a large skillet, heat the oil and add onions and garlic.
Cook over medium heat until onions are tender.
Add bell pepper and cook until tender.
Add remaining ingredients through mustard and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in frankfurters and simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve over rice.
