    Ms. MO's Note:

    Ultimate comfort food, Texas Goulash was originally my mother's recipe which she taught me to make at age 10. I've changed a few things over the years and made it "my own" after having prepared it for at least 40 years. You'll need a deep skillet for this one.

      While the water is heating, in a deep (3-inch) cast iron skillet or other large pot, crumble the ground chuck. Stirring and breaking up the meat, cook over medium high heat until no longer pink. Remove the meat from the skillet and drain the fat; set meat aside.

      I think this is now a family favorite for goulash! The Heinz 57 gives a unique flavor to this recipe. Thanks for sharing Ms. Mojo!

      This has also been a favorite of my family for many years. Instead of the canned tomatoes and water, I use a quart of home bottled tomatoes. Or you could use a large can of Contina crushed tomatoes. We also like to put a big glob of margarine in it to give it a rich flavor (I know :).....
