Simple and delicious! This Old-fashioned Goulash is made with ground beef, tomatoes, and macaroni. Goulash tastes more like spaghetti, but with paprika in it, making the taste change a little. Also, I prefer the texture of the goulash because of the perfect meat and noodle ratio, plus the shape of the macaroni. I like this Goulash as is, but if you prefer yours to be more like a soup, simply add extra liquid.
2 pounds Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
2 tbsp Olive Oil
3 large cloves Garlic, pressed or finely minced
1 large Yellow Onion, diced
2 large Bay Leaves
1 c. Low Sodium Beef Broth (use chicken broth if using ground turkey)
2 – 15-oz. cans of Tomato Sauce
2 tsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce (or Worcestershire sauce)
2 – 14.5-oz. cans of Diced Tomatoes with juice, or stewed tomatoes
2 tsp Seasoned Salt (such as Johnny’s®)
2 c. Uncooked Small Elbow Macaroni
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Paprika
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
How to make Old Fashioned Goulash
Step 1: Add oil to a hot dutch oven or soup pot on med-high heat. Add ground beef or turkey. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring often until browned. Then, remove the excess grease.
Step 2: To the pot, add the diced onion, garlic, and bay leaves. Continue to cook for another 4 minutes, stirring often.
Step 3: Pour in the broth and add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, soy sauce, seasoned salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and paprika. Mix well.
Step 4: Adjust the heat to low. Put the lid on and cook for additional 15 minutes, stirring often.
Step 5: Toss in the uncooked macaroni noodles. Replace the lid and continue to cook for another 15 to 25 minutes or until the pasta is done.
Step 6: Remove the bay leaves and discard them. Serve the Goulash immediately. Enjoy!
Increase the beef broth to 1 cup or so if you prefer the goulash more like a soup.
