We Called It Goulash

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Derfette

Grandma called it a "bowl of S**T" because it isn't exactly visually appealing. It was a staple because it was cheap, easy, made a lot of food and a comfort food. I don't really know how much milk to use...so I will just put in an amount...sorry...I don't always measure out everything i cook!? For potatoes/onions/carrots, that's kind of a personal thing. Depends on what you like most.

This was really good, the only changes I made to the recipe is I used 99% Fat Free soups, which helped me to get rid of a lot of fat, plus I added a little garlic salt, it is a staple in my cooking, and added a little fat free cheese to up the protein. This was delicious. Will be making again.
