Back in the 50's we used to eat something like this, the difference was we cheddar cheese and 1 can of whole corn and called it American Goulash. When times were hard this was a cheap meal and could feed a big family. I will still add the corn to make it a 1 pan dinner.
To the lady from New Zealand who said we didn't have American Goulash -
From Wikipedia here is the section on American Goulash:
Australian and North American goulash
In Australia, Canada and the United States, various adaptations have made the dish more suitable for local preferences. Minced beef frequently replaces cut beef in the recipe, which reduces the cost as well as the cooking time. The meat and onions are then placed in the pan, the other ingredients are added and the dish might be ready to serve in as little time as 20 to 30 minutes. This goulash is commonly finished by the addition of noodles, pasta, or elbow macaroni. This form of the dish was made popular by its inclusion in popular cookbooks in the early and mid twentieth century, such as Betty Crocker's Cookbook and the Margaret Fulton Cookbook.
Goulash is also a slang term in some parts of the United States, particularly the South, for a dish made with miscellaneous left-overs. Noodles or potatoes are usually added thereafter.
In parts of New England, Goulash can refer to a pasta dish with ground beef and tomato sauce also known as "American Chop Suey."
