Family Favorite Beef Goulash (No Tomato)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

This is what my French Canadian Mom used to call Goulash, no tomato, just lots of beef & veggies in a beef gravy base. My Mom always served it with elbow macaroni, but I like to use egg noodles. Its a simple recipe, but everyone I've ever made this for just loves it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large pot, cook egg noodles in boiling salted water until al dente, drain and set noodles aside.
  2. In the empty pot, heat olive oil and saute onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, and celery until onion is translucent.
  3. Add ground beef, parsley, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, salt, & pepper. Cook until meat is almost done (don't drain), then add peas & carrots and beef gravy.
  4. Cook until beef is done, then taste and adjust seasonings according to your preference.
  5. Toss cooked egg noodles in and coat well.
  6. Serve hot.

This a was very good and very different from anything I have ever made, but was lacking some zip. I think maybe next time I would add more red pepper rather than just a dash. I am usually a wimp when it come to adding red pepper to dishes, but maybe because of the amount of servings, maybe a 1/4 teaspoon would be good. I also needed to add salt & pepper to my portion. But, those are only minor changes, and I will definitely make this again! I made for PAC Spring 2010.
