This is my grandma's recipe for goulash.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook ground beef in large skillet (or pan) until it loses its redness. I drain the beef, and add back to the pan, just to make it healthier.
  2. Add all other ingredients.
  3. Cover and simmer 25 minutes or until macaroni is cooked to suit your taste.

This is exactly the recipe I was looking for, an American version of goulash. The only thing I did differently was reduce the green pepper about half because my husband likes it better that way. It reminds me of my mom's!

This dish would probably taste OK, but it should not be tagged "Hungarian", as it is no more Hungarian than Haggis. Hamburger? No. Macaroni? No. This is an Americanization of a German/Austrian/Czech take on the genuine dish, by way of England (Worcestershire, for Heaven's sake!). Still, for what it is, I would eat it and enjoy it. Please retag it, tho.

Super easy and quick to make and only 1 pan to dirty! I did think it needed more seasonings, so I added garlic, basil and a little sugar. I noticed it was getting s little dry, so I added more water before it was done. Next time I would probably add an extra can of tomatoes. Thanx for a new easy meal!
