Goulash Recipe

My roommate and I like to cook large meals on Sunday night and eat leftovers throughout the week. Goulash is the perfect dish to make in large quantities, because it holds up well in the refrigerator for the rest of the week. The ingredients are easy to come by (I already had about half of the ingredients at home). Below is the recipe and step by step tutorial.

2lbs. Ground Beef

1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped

4 Large Cloves Garlic, minced

3 Cups Water

2 (15oz) Cans Tomato Sauce

2 (14.5oz) Cans Diced Tomatoes, drained

3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons Dried Oregano

2 Teaspoons Dried Basil

1 Tablespoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

2 Cups Elbow Macaroni, uncooked


1. In a large Dutch oven, cook the meat over medium heat, breaking up the meat as it cooks into small pieces. Cook until the meat is cooked through and there’s no longer any pink. Stir in the onions and garlic. Cook and stir the mixture until the onions are translucent.

2. Stir in water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, soy sauce, oregano, basil, bay leaves, seasoned salt, and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally

3. Stir in the pasta, cover, and simmer over low heat until the pasta is tender, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and refrigerate, if possible, overnight. If you must, you could serve. 🙂
