    1. 1
      Saute beef, 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and 2 onions in large frying pan. Drain excess fat. Lots of onions makes this good.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in another pan cook macaroni in boiling, salted water until tender. Set aside until almost ready to serve.
    3. 3
      When beef and onions are finished cooking, add the canned, crushed tomatores and approximately 1/2 cup water; also add garlic salt, pepper, chili powder and mix well.
    4. 4
      Simmer for about 20 minutes; then add cooked macaroni noodles and mix well when ready to serve. If you add the macaroni noodles too soon, they may over cook and get mushy.

      I found this in a very old Jewish cookbook and was going to post it. It is a very good, easy, recipe. I left out the chili powder and this one time I left out the onion because I served this with a side of sauteed onions and yellow squash and didn't want to go over the top with the was very good and my husband said "This is Mary's Special"..."Um, no, it's hamburger goulash."...apparently this was the only thing his grandmother ever made so they called it "Mary's Special." So this is a very vintage recipe as Grandma Mary died in the 70s...I was happy to find a recipe my husband loved and reminded him of his childhood...I'll be making this over and over again...

      This is called American Chop Suey and every kid I know in New England ate some variant of this growing up.

      Came out really good. I changed it up some. For one, while beef, onion, tomatoes were simmering I added about 3/4 corn. My mother always had corn hers. Then after 15 minutes of simmering on the pan, I preheated the oven to 380f. I combined the beef and tomatoe mixture with the noodles in a casserole pan (oven pan) and while blending I added about 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. I set it in the oven for about 15 minutes but before removing I placed slices of thin cheddar cheese on it and allowed it to melt. Over all it came out good. Very close to moms receipe which was lost.
