Well, this was it! This is the recipe my kids have been asking for and I've been trying to find for months! I was looking for "goulash" so I missed this one in my search. After several attempts at different styles of "goulash" to the dismay of my kids, I finally got an "All Thumbs Up" from every one of them! They even had seconds... Turned out perfectly - the directions and amounts were right on the money, and even I (who prefers chunks of pepper & mushrooms and "the works") really liked this sweet version, too. Thanks so much for sharing (and thanks SO much for the tip about puree'ing the onions and garlic so I could get the flavor in there without the chitlins knowing it)! YAY! My quest is over. This is a keeper in my house. Thanks, DiB's. ;)
This is a pretty good kid friendly recipe that uses common pantry staples. Another reviewer commented that their kids didn't care for the onions. If that's an issue for you try substituting 1 tablespoon of onion powder for the fresh onion. You can also substitute 1/4 tsp of garlic powder for the fresh garlic. I've made this 3 times in the last month and my son keeps hogging it up, even when I make a double batch. This is definitely "kid food". UPDATE: I doubled this recipe again, but I didn't have enough cans of tomato soup so i used 2 cans of tomato soup and 2 - 6oz. can of tomato paste and It tasted even better. It had a sweeter taste.
