Everyone has grown up eating goulash in one form or another. This recipe is a little more time consuming than what my mom used to make, but the bacon does give this dish an added dimension which I really like. A nice "I don't know what to make tonight" meal because most ingredients should already be in your cupboard, fridge or freezer. Another plus is that it only uses one lb of ground beef, but easily feeds a family of four or so. Thanks, Roxy!
Very good....i used a can of beef broth and diced tomatoes also in place of water. Used 1 can of tomato paste and added 1/2c. celery. Thanks for the recipe!!
I've made some near to this recipe before and they were good. The ideas in this one sound GREAT. I plan on making it tonight with the following additions. Substituting beef broth and a can of diced tomatoes for the water and dropping one of the cans of tomato paste. And adding 1/2 cup celery and the center celery leaf stalks and lowering part of the parsley.
Roxygirl, This was one of my favorite meals that my mother would make for us back when I was very young. Being on a very tight waitress's budget raising 3 hungry kids, my mom's cookin was the best in my book. I always looked forward to her Goulash with her homemade Corn Bread. Seeing this recipe brings back alot of great memories. Guess what I am cookin for dinner tonight? Thanks for posting this recipe. Melody A. Lansing,Illinois
I enjoyed making this - knowing that it was as Roxygirl had said - an "old-fashioned" recipe! I increased the garlic to 4 cloves (personal taste preference) and used Australian bush tomato (a bottled spice) instead of the tomato paste (because tomato paste always disagrees with me) but otherwise made this exactly to the recipe, including the yummy topping. We all enjoyed it. Eminently freezable, so I'm planning to make it again soon - a double quantity - so that I can stash away some meals in my parents' freezer. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I forgot, I also added 1cup each grated, cheddar,mozzarella.made it really yummy.
A delicious dish that my whole family loved! I love the addition of the bacon; it really adds a nice flavor. I didn't use the breadcrumbs; I did use the dried parsley and I chopped the green peppers. This is one of my favorite recipes I've found on the Zaar! A definite favorite! Thanks, Roxygirl for sharing!
