Delicious recipe. I have made this many times now, and have developed a few changes. The 3 Tbsp. of soy sauce made the goulash a bit too salty for us, so now I only add about 1 Tbsp. I also use a can of tomato sauce, rather than tomato soup. I use a box of macaroni and cheese for the pasta and add in the powdered cheese, instead of Velveeta (less fat). Thanks for the great recipe!

I screwed this recipe all up and it's still VERY good! I intended to make Mock Chop Suey, but realized after the meat defrosted that I forgot to buy vegetables this week. I still wanted a ground beef dish with rice and found this recipe. I had no green peppers and had a headache so I didn't feel like chopping an onion. I used onion flakes and pre-chopped garlic from a jar. I browned the meat with the onion flakes and garlic. After draining the fat, I added the water and soup, but I did not add soy sauce. I started pouring before I realized that the bottle in my hand was worcesteshire and not soy sauce. Doh! So at that point I added pepper and salt (I wasn't going to use salt with the soy sauce). Then I added the rice. Again, my headache impaired my judgment. Take my advice: Follow the recipe and do NOT add the rice until after the mixture has simmered! The rice soaked up the water too quickly and my dinner started to burn. Luckily I caught it just in time before it was completely ruined. I added more water and let it simmer until the rice was cooked. I used only parmesan cheese - no Velveeta. Despite all of my mistakes, it tasted really good! And my headache was gone after I ate! Coincidence? I look forward to making this again - correctly. Although I did like the worcesteshire sauce, so I'll probably keep that in...

My family LOVED this goulash! Even my hubby, who kinda snarled and said, "I don't like goulash" had 2 helpings the first night and then ate it for breakfast & lunch the following day! When my daughter was little she asked my mom, "Nana, will you cook me some of your yummy eyelash"! It took us a few minutes to realize she meant goulash. I hadn't made goulash since my mom was killed over 10 yrs ago, and I'm glad I picked this recipe. The only changes I made was to use tomato sauce instead of soup and adding shredded cheddar and an Italian cheese mix on top of each serving, instead of in the pan. (popping each into the microwave just long enough to melt the cheese). It was delicious and I definitely won't be waiting 10 yrs to make it again! Thanks for the recipe!
