It’s been chilly here the last few days, so I decided some goulash would hit the spot. It’s a great chilly weather food and with the one pot instructions, it’s easy!
Every time I make this recipe it’s a little different than the time before. Sometimes I add chili powder, cayenne pepper and/or cumin if I’m wanting a little more spice. Parsley often makes it into the pot and I’ve even tossed in some kale for something different.
My husband doesn’t care for most peppers, so I have to find different ways to make up for the missing flavor. It’s a little bland with out the peppers, but easy to spice up and make your own.
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped (optional)
- 1 28 ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
- salt and pepper to taste (I use 1 Tablespoon of pepper)
- 12 ounces wide or medium egg noodles
- In a large pot cook hamburger, garlic, onion and bell pepper (optional) until hamburger is no longer pink and onions and bell pepper are tender. Drain. My splatter screen comes in very handy here.
- Add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Fill one of the tomato cans with water and add to the pot.
- Add salt, pepper and any other spices. Stir.
- Heat to boiling. Add egg noodles. Reduce heat to medium and cook until noodles are tender.
- Feeds… lots. Best guess, 8 or more servings. I always have plenty to freeze for a quick meal later.
