Quick and easy to make. I especially like a goulash in the winter as an alternative to chili. My husband is a VERY PICKY eater, but he loves this dish. This goulash is best on the second day and is great with a salad and garlic bread.

This was easy to make (I made it in the morning and just tossed on the stove 20 mins before dinner) and has wonderful flavor. I used the elbows this time and can't wait to try it again with the potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!
- 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground chicken, browned (I prefer lean turkey)
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion, sauted with the meat
- 2 (15 ounce) cans mixed vegetables (OR 1 can cut greenbeans with juice and 1 can whole kernel corn with juice)
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I prefer Hunt's with spices already in it for more flavor)
- 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce (I prefer Hunt's with spices already in it for more flavor)
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup small elbow macaroni (or dice 1 extra large potatoe or 2 medium potatoes instead of noodles)
- 3⁄4 cup water (I use one of the empty veg. cans)
- salt and pepper (I prefer the grinder kind of sea salt and black pepper or mixed pepper)
Directions See How It's Made
- In a stew or dutch-oven pot, saute meat and chopped onions until brown.
- Pour off any grease (I use lean turkey, so I don't have extra grease).
- Add to browned meat& onions all of the remaining ingredients (the order doesn't matter).
- Stir and bring to boil, then turn down to medium-low or simmer and put lid on pot.
- Simmer 20 minutes or until noodles (or potatoes) are done.
- Stir occasionally to keep from sticking to bottom of pot.
