I got chill bumps when I saw this recipe. My mother, who is no longer living and referred to as "Nana" by her grandchildren, had a special recipe for goulash. Hers was similar, but better, I think. She used the ground beef, onion and green pepper, sauteed together. In a separate pan, she fixed a "boxed" macaroni and cheese mix. After the meat was browned, she drained it and added the mac-n-chz with a can of tomatoes and a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic salt or any other similar spice you want. Hers was a one dish meal, served with a tossed salad and crusty bread. SO good! And easy to warm up leftovers - if you have any!
This was alright. I didn't see the difference between this and a thin pasta sauce. Only changes I made were ground turkey for the beef, no mushrooms because my husband hates them, added in fresh garlic instead of garlic salt and green beans for the zucchini. It was just too bland, but I saved it by adding extra paprika and basil, plus pepper and a tad of cayenne. I probably won't make this again.
This was Awesome. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. I used 2 zukes, 1 red pepper, spicy paprika, garlic powder and garlic salt and 1 tbs. of sugar to cut down on the acid. I boiled a brown rice Boil n Bag and added it to the sauce, extended the cooking by time by 15 minutes. It turned out fantastic. The leftovers were even better!
I substituted sweet onion for red, and yellow pepper instead of mushrooms. Kept everything else the same. Served it mixed with elbow macaroni, but the 16 oz box was a bit too much. Probably go with 8 or 12 oz. next time, but this time it was still fine, just a tad noodle heavy. Still, this is very good and I love all the veggie goodness. My 13 month old loved it, especially the zucchini.
Very good, and a quick and easy weeknight supper. I added a couple cloves of fresh minced garlic, and also added around 3/4 of a cup of sour cream in the last few minutes. Served it over rice and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.
Thought this was pretty tasty. Did make a few changes/additions: Used only 1 green bell pepper, no red. Used yellow onion instead of red. Sauteed the mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, and 1 clove garlic first, then added some lean beef. There wasn't any fat to drain, so it saves some time. I also added some chili powder with all the other spices. Omitted the garlic sauce. Served with brown rice and topped with 4-cheese blend.
This goulash is very yummy! I bought some Hungarian Goulash spice mix in London, so wanted to find a good recipe as soon as I got back. I substituted the spice mix (paprika-based) for the paprika in recipe and used ground turkey and a little extra zucchini. I served it over brown rice and added greek yogurt on top in place of sour cream. My fiance was scared to try it (I think the name "goulash" was the main problem :) and he really liked it... he finished off his serving! It's really just almost like a chili using veggies instead of beans. Very good.
This was an awesome recipe. Served it with buttered noodles and crusty bread.
