Ken's Goulash

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by keen5

I know that some people get upset when this type of dish is called "goulash." Please don't blame me, blame Most kids love this and it makes six large servings with leftovers for lunch. I thought it was pretty tasty myself. This recipe is from the Mount Joy Mennonite Church cookbook. Mount Joy is in Lancaster County, PA. Cook time includes browning beef.

Made this as written except for the cheese -- we just sprinkled cheese on top for those who wanted it. This makes a lot! Good if you're stretching your food dollar like we are! Thanks for the recipe! We enjoyed it, especially my 7 year old niece!
