Classic Goulash Recipe
Are you familiar with Goulash? If not, let me introduce you to this old fashioned recipe! This recipe is an American Goulash that’s great for busy weeknights, but I love to take this recipe to potlucks and parties because it makes a ton and is super affordable. It’s also great for picky eaters, I haven’t met one kid who doesn’t love this dish!

Goulash is filled with ground beef, onion and bell peppers along with macaroni noodles in a tomato-based sauce. I like to stir in some sharp cheddar cheese at the end to give it a creamy texture. My family loves it!

  • Goulash Ingredients:
      • Onion – I like to use either a white or yellow onion
      • Green Bell Pepper – you can use other colors of peppers if desired
      • Ground Beef
      • Garlic
      • Tomato Sauce
      • Diced Tomatoes – I love using the petite diced tomatoes here
      • Beef Broth
      • Worcestershire Sauce
      • Seasoned Salt
      • Italian Seasoning
      • Bay Leaves
      • Dry Macaroni Noodles – other small pastas would work too
      • Cheddar Cheese

How To Make Goulash

        • Start by browning the ground beef along with the onion and bell pepper. Drain any fat and then toss in garlic until fragrant.
        • Pour in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes along with beef broth and Worcestershire sauce for some added depth of flavor.
        • Add in the seasonings as well as dried macaroni noodles and let simmer until the noodles are cooked through.
        • Finally stir in the cheddar cheese and dig in!

Tips and Variations:

    • Make sure you use a big pot, as this recipe does make a lot!
    • You can swap out the macaroni noodles for any other small pasta you have on hand.
    • To make this an even leaner meal, you can use ground turkey in place of ground beef.
    • Try adding in extra veggies like: corn, peas, diced carrots, green beans or even stirring in baby spinach at the end!
    • Stir in a cup of sour cream at the end to give this recipe an even creamier base!
    • The goulash is not quite soup consistency, but if you would like to add extra beef broth to make it more soupy you can definitely do that!
