I have to say, I hate the name "Goulash". Doesn't sound appetizing, but trust me, this is yummy to the tummy good! Anyhow, years ago I came upon a recipe from a friend. Over the years I have tweaked it quite a bit to come up with this yummy dish! I cook it often and my 1 and 2 year old both eat a full plate. I serve mine over pasta, but you could eat it just plain with crackers or fresh bread.
You will need:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 (16 oz)cans light red kidney beans (I use Bush's)
- 2 (14.5 oz)cans diced tomatoes
- 1 onion chopped or sliced
- 1 Tablespoon garlic
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
- Pasta of choice
In a large pot, cook ground beef, garlic and onions over medium heat until the ground beef is browned. Drain any fat. Add all the rest of the ingredients, except the pasta. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Cook 3 cups of dry pasta per instructions on box. Bowtie or spirals are my favorite for this dish. You can add more Tabasco sauce on each serving if you want it slightly "hotter".
Serve over pasta or eat plain with crackers or fresh bread.
Here is a free pdf download of the recipe.
