Why I Love This Recipe

My grandmas American goulash recipe. (2 versions) American goulash is nothing like Hungarian goulash which is more like a stew. I think every family has their own version of goulash.

Ingredients You'll Need

1-2 lbs hamburger or pre baked stew meat or leftover beef roast cut into bite size chunks
1 lb elbow macaroni or spiral pasta or if using beef chunks use egg noodles
1 yellow cooking onion rough chopped
1 green pepper rough chopped
Garlic powder
Parsley flakes
Dash of worcestershire sauce
3 beef bouillon cubes dissolved into 3 cups hot water
Couple shakes of pepper
1 can stewed tomatoes original flavor smashed w/ a fork (Opt: can use crushed tomatoes instead of stewed if you prefer)
(If using beef cubes/ chunks add 1 can campbell's tomato soup )
OPT: Cornstarch mixed w/ water to thicken
1 C sour cream or more if you like
OPT Parmesan and provolone cheese


Hamburger version:
Brown hamburger in a lil water and strain put back in pan and add onions and green peppers and fry 'til soft (allways strain meat before adding veggies or spices so you don't strain out all the flavor!)

Cook elbows or spirals till al dente and add to sauce
