Mom's Cheap and Easy Goulash

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Brandess

My Mom used to make this for us all of the time. This is a quick, inexpensive and delicious one pot meal. She always served it with homemade garlic rolls, but I love to serve it with TSR Version of Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits by Todd Wilbur.
