Recipe by Terry McIntire
"There were no microwaves when my mom made this, so she did it on the stove top. She never gave us the recipe and I have discovered it through trial and error. You never forget the taste! I started with a recipe in a microwave cookbook and have adjusted the ingredients over time. If anyone is home when you are cooking, you will have company in the kitchen! Serve with Caesar salad, oven-baked garlic butter French bread and red wine. Microwave temperatures vary, so keep checking to see if these power levels work for you."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Exactly what I had hoped it would be, thank you! My only change (ingredient wise) was that the diced tomatos had basil, oregano and garlic already mixed in which added fantastic flavor! I opted to saute the garlic, a little more celery and little less onion, browned the beef and simmered all together on the stovetop. (My microwave tends to go on the fritz so I prefer the stovetop.) Before serving I sprinkled a bit of parmesan cheese on the top. Fabulous.
I made this on the stovetop & it was easy and tasted fairly nice ... initially. I reheated it the next day and it wasn't good. I threw this recipe away.
I"m giving this 5 stars because I, myself, made a couple of goofs. I did an "oops" with the cayenne pepper, which doesn't bother my family much, and the tomato sauce I had were 8oz cans so I felt like it could have been better with a little more tomato sauce. Oh, since I made it on my stove, I sauteed the onions & celery. Then browned the ground beef. Then added it all together in a large skillet and let it simmer a few minutes. It was good and I will be making it again . Thanks!
Great! The only thing that was not so tasty was the caraway, which I will omit in the future. The caraway overpowers the taste of the recipe.
Not the fanciest meal out there but very good nonetheless. I omitted the celery, sugar, paprika, caraway seed and cayenne and added in black pepper, tomato paste, garlic powder, extra can of tomatoes and basil. I had about 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef. I cooked this on the stovetop, not in the microwave.
This was good. This is one of the better goulash recipies out there.
I made this on the stovetop. And this recipe was really good. The leftovers were even better. I will forsure make again.
This was so good,my boys loved it. I didn't make it in the microwave,I used my crock pot.I put everything in the crock pot except the noodles and let it simmer while I was at work,then added the noodles when I got home.
