Goulash Recipe

by Carol Yost
(Las Vegas)

This is my family version of a goulash recipe:

1 pound elbow macaroni
2 pound ground round (ground turkey may be used)
1 large onion diced
1/2 small green pepper diced
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic (more or less to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
2 large cans of diced or stewed tomatoes in tomato juice

1. Brown ground meat with the onion, pepper and garlic.
2. Add canned tomatoes w/ juice (If you add extra tomato juice it makes it more juicy and improve the flavor )
3. Let simmer for about 1-2 hrs
4. Cook Macaroni

Here is the part that makes a big difference.

For 1 serving. Fill up a bowl half-way with the Macaroni, then put a layer of mozzarella shredded cheese Then fill the rest of the way up with the meat and sauce mixture . Let it sit for a minute for the cheese to melt. ENJOY!!

I have some advice for the readers, that the recipe is awesome. I tried this at my home. And had it with my noodles and my husband told me this dish was excellent. I am so happy now. In addition, if your cooker is slow preheat it before cooking. All the best guys.

Carol, I added kidney beans and used cheddar cheese with your recipe as the base. The beans gave it a little extra that I enjoy.

Awesome and easy recipe
by: Goulash recipe

THe Goulash recipe by Carol Yost was excellent! My first time making goulash this way and my family loved it, thank you! I did do one thing differently, I used two regular cans of stewed tomatoes instead of the large and one was basil, garlic and oregano in it. I also put them in the turbo bullet for a few seconds because my husband does not like tomatoes but it turned out wonderful to everyones liking!

Really Good!
by: Tammy

I just tried this recipe last night and it was wonderful! I am not sure if I used the correct size can of tomatoes, so next time I will use the largest I can get. I used 14 oz. cans and I would have liked it a little saucier. I will definately use this again and again!!
Thanks for sharing!!!!
