Soups, Stews and Chili April 6, 2020
Easy recipe for making a classic goulash. Can also be done in a slow cooker. Inspired by Paula Deen's Bobby's Goulash.
If there was a section for Comments, I would leave this message there because this is for the reviewer that gave it one star and commented that it was not really goulash. Well, it may not be goulash to you but there are thousands of us who grew up eating this and it was called goulash. It is an easy, filling, economical, tasty dish so keep your reviews to the recipe and not the name, you may not know what you are talking about. I noticed you did the same thing to a mexican dish you said it was not authentic. This is a site to share recipes and report how it worked for us.

This is the classic goulash made in the mid-west, USA, not Hungarian Goulash. I grew up on this in Iowa, but we used Worchestershire sauce instead of soy sauce, no bay leaf, and a green pepper if we had one.Author: pathunt Serves: 8 servings
- 1 tablespoon seasoned salt, or to taste
- 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
- 2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
- 2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
- 3 cups water
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 large yellow onions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons dried Italian herb seasoning
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 bay leaves
- 1. Cook and stir the ground beef in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking the meat up as it cooks, until the meat is no longer pink and has started to brown, about 10 minutes. Skim off excess fat, and stir in the onions and garlic. Cook and stir the meat mixture until the onions are translucent, about 10 more minutes.
- 2. Stir water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, soy sauce, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, and seasoned salt into the meat mixture and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- 3. Stir macaroni into the mixture, cover, and simmer over low heat until the pasta is tender, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, discard bay leaves, and serve.
