Recipe by LARavenscroft
This is my own take on Goulash that my mother used to make when I was growing up. What she made was only ground beef, onions, tomato juice and macaroni. I've dressed it up a little bit and it's something that I can make at a drop of the hat because I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

Made this tonight for dinner because I had to work a meeting after work and needed something quick and tasty! This came together easily and tasted very good. I let the dish sit over low heat for about 30 minutes to let the spices meld....ended up adding a bit more cayenne pepper to increase the heat. The cinnamon flavor came through easily, and added a little something special. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars.
