Goulash

Filed under: Beef, Main Dish, Vegetables — Tags: — bettylou79 @ 11:26 am

This is another recipe that I grew up eating. Sorry, mom, I’m sharing all the family recipes. Don’t worry, the Apple Pie recipe is safe! This dish is one of my recipes I go to when I don’t know what to make for dinner. It is also a one pot meal. I usually serve this with corn. Nate likes to eat this all in one bowl instead of on a plate. It looks kind of similar to the Favorite’s Bowl (or something to that effect) at KFC. He tried it and deemed it gross. Back to my recipe! This dish is also great for leftovers a few nights later or for lunch. I like to “garnish” mine with Parmesan cheese.

Did anyone else grow up on something like this? What do you call it? Now that I think about it, this kind of looks like a home made version of Hamburger Helper (no thank you!).

Goulash

source: My mom and Grandma

Ingredients:

1 lb lean ground beef

1 can Dark Red Kidney Beans

Large Egg Noodles

2 stalks Celery, minced

3-4 TB Tomato Paste

1-2 cloves Garlic, minced

1 TB Chili Powder

1 small onion, chopped

1 can Diced Peeled Tomatoes

salt and pepper

Directions

Brown ground beef in large frying pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drain off all fat.

Add onion, celery, and garlic and stir. Add tomatoes and paste with 1/2 cup water. Sprinkle with chili powder. Mix. Add Kidney beans.

Cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes. You don’t want this to boil dry so keep an eye on it and add water if needed. Sprinkle dry noodles over top of hamburger mixture and cover. Let cook for 10-15 minutes, then stir noodles into the mixture.

  6. That’s a great, yummy-looking weeknight meal. Too bad it has such an unattractive name!
