TNT - My Mom's Goulash

This is a dish I grew up on and it always brings warm memories. With 8 mouths to feed mom had to watch her pennies at the grocery store. Mom always just served it with bread and butter.

MY MOM'S GOULASH

This is exactly as she wrote it down for me.

Brown about a pound of ground beef. Sometimes I add a little sausage. Add some chopped onion, some green pepper if you like cook until soft add:

1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1 bay leaf
Some worcheshire sauce

Brown and cook together. Add 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 can tomato soup, 2 small cans of tomato sauce and some ketchup if you like. Taste add more or less.

Meanwhile cook 1 box of creamette macaroni in boiling water until aldente or tender, drain, do not rinse, add sauce to macaroni and cook on low for a few minutes. You can use parmesan cheese if you like. Make sure you cook on low or it will stick. Taste and add more of what you like. I sometimes add Italian Seasoning. And take out bay leaf. You can add what you like.

MY NOTE: I can never recall eating this without green bell peppers in it. Also when I make it I only use the ground beef.

mmm. Sounds good. I don't know what mom added to hers as far as seasoning, but you just can't beat good goulash with a fork in one hand and a piece of buttered bread in the other.

Hey! A new forum! I've visited it twice and didn't even know until I followed the link from the frugal recipes thread!

OH yay! What a good idea (the forum).

Sizzlin- Your goulash sounds really good. I've always been curious about the dish and I'm excited to try it now that you've poted this yummy recipe. Thanks!

This is what DH makes about EVERY time he cooks.
Luckily this is only once every 3 months cuz I swear he'd make it twice a week!

He obviously has good taste! Try it over some polenta some time instead of macaroni, that's the way my Mom made it, and it was another way to streeeeeeeetch a meal for the 6 males in our family.
