What more can I add? Wonderful recipe. Cheap, fast, easy, and the kids love it! I added a little chili seasoning and a can of beans. Thanks!
This is a great base recipe. Without adjusting the recipe at all, it was very bland and not very good. I added a can of corn, basil, oregano, cumin, cayenne, and two jalapenos. This made for a pretty spicy Mexican variety which had great flavor.
Sounds like goulash that I've been making for years, and my mom before me. I like the taste better if macaroni is cooked and then added. You can change up the spices to please you.
This is similar to an Egyptian dish known as koushary, but koushary has lentils and rice instead of beef. Comfort food!!
To add more flavor, I added onion and garlic powder as well as Mild Taco Seasoning & diced jalapenos, and used Mexican-style stewed tomatoes. Both my way and the original recipe make for good, reliable comfort food. Will be saving this and working it into my regular rotation. Update: I made this again, this time using 1 can of regular stewed tomatoes and beef broth instead of water. I also added corn and chili sauce: this really is a great base recipe.
Delicious!!! Instead of Ground Beef, I used up some keilbasa that I had left over. Only had one can of stewed tomatoes, and one can of diced tomatoes with chiles. Corn and/or beans would also compliment this dish well.
This I will be making again! I did make some modifications to better suit this households tastes. I omitted the garlic, but not to lose out on flavor, I added some mexican seasonings. As well, we don't eat beef so I ground up some pork in place of it. I enjoyed this dish alot! Thanks Kari in Denver for posting this easy & quick recipe!
I thought this recipe was really good. It reminded me of the goulash my friends mom used to make all the time. I always loved it. I accidentally got the wrong tomatoes (I got diced) But I got the Italian style. I also added fresh basil, and some fennel seed and a ton more garlic b/c I love it.
I really liked it with the Italian diced tomatoes so when I make it again I will stick with that. Great recipe for a quick meal. Will work great on those baseball nights when I need to feed the kids something good hearty and fast.
Followed the recipe except we used left over mozzarella and cheddar cheese instead of the parm, I threw in a can of sliced mushrooms when I was cooking the onion and then added basil, thyme and parsley to the whole works. My two year old LOVED it. I like it because its filling and goes a long way. I think next time I will double up on the stewed tomatoes.
AMAZING. I made this with GROUND TURKEY breast and added some beef bullion during the browning to create a strong beef flavor. My family never had a clue! At the suggestion of other reviewers, I increased the garlic (can't have too much) and added 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, and used all the juice from the tomatoes. The flavor was amazing. Everyone in the family said this recipe is a "major" "Do-Over" for sure! That's equivalent to 10 stars!
