Sizzlin, your Mom's Goulash recipe is a very popular dish around these parts!

We call it "American Chop Suey"! I grew up on that, too!

hey, I would grill it!
Well, cook it on the grill and give it a bit of
smoke time anyway.

Polenta.. scary looking stuff in tubes that I havent gotten the
guts to try yet. LOL!

This is the one dish my DH cooks well. When he was a bachelor, he would make a huge pan of it and eat it all week (or until it grew fuzz on top). He always adds some fresh chopped garlic, and sometimes we grate a little cheese on top. Yummy.

I almost fell in the floor laughing while watching Guy Fieri on tv one night when he was visiting some diner up in the Northeast and first encountered "American Chop Suey" - a dish totally foreign to him - not just the name, the dish!

Well, I grew up with it being called Slum Gullion, the lunch ladies at school called it Goulash .... same thing as American Chop Suey.

Hamburger, onion, green bell pepper, diced tomatoes and/or tomato sauce, ground black pepper, large or small macroni ... garlic powder optional.

I have a pound of burger thawing in the fridge, and was trying to think of something quick and easy for dinner tomorrow.

American Slum Goulash it is!

I made a number of tries to come up with an American Chop Suey recipe that met my eldest's approval - it had to taste like the stuff from the college cafeteria!

We figured it out together and now it's a staple for her.
