Description

This is a very simple Goulash recipe. Lots of tomato flavor! My husband and stepdaughter like things super simple. Spice for them is salt. Not very fun for me, but this is a good recipe and they will eat it.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Hamburger
  • 1 whole Small Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 14 ounces, weight Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 ounces, weight Tomato Paste
  • 2 cans Water (use Tomato Paste Can To Measure)
  • ¼ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1-½ cup Large Elbow Macaroni

Preparation

Cook hamburger and drain.

Dice onions and garlic and place in the skillet with the cooked meat. Cook on low for about 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste and 2 cans of water (use the tomato paste can to measure). Add salt, pepper and Italian seasoning (you can add more Italian seasoning).

Simmer for 5 minutes. Add dry macaroni and simmer for at least 10 minutes, covered. When pasta is cooked, it is ready to serve. This recipe is also great as leftovers (you can always double the recipe).

We had Very Simple Goulash night before last. It was easy and quite tasty. The men in the family kept sneaking back in the kitchen for more. Ok – so did I. Green beans and cornbread accompanied the Goulash. Yummy. Used the organic ground beef we buy from the local farmer who sells her beef, chicken, pork, eggs, milk and cheese at our local farmer’s market.

This is the BEST goulash recipe!! I doubled it using 2 lbs. of lean ground meat, a whole package of elbow macaroni and 4 cups of water. I also added 1 can of whole kernel corn and a packet of McCormick Thick & Zesty spaghetti seasoning. After it was done I topped it with a shredded mozzarella/parmesan blend and a spoonful of sour cream…YUMMY!!!

I made this for dinner last night. It was so good. I used some of my canned tomatoes which made it even more yummy. The only issue I had was that some of the pasta wasnt cooked all the way through. My husband thought it needed more pasta too. So next time I may cook the pasta separately to al dente and then add it to the pot. I will definitely be making this again!! Thanks! :)

I made this recipe last night for my 3 very picky boys and they all loved it. I am not by any means a good cook, but this was so easy to make. I did change it just a little, mostly because I didn’t read the directions completely before beginning, I boiled the macaroni separately. Otherwise I followed the directions, except I covered my final dish with cheese and baked until the cheese melted. I would highly recommend this dish for anyone looking for a simple yet tasty dinner. I have never made goulash before, mostly because I don’t like my mother’s so therefore thought I didn’t like goulash, but this has made a goulash lover out of me.
Thank you.
