My mom made goulash all of the time. Contrary to today goulash, this isn't the type that is hamburger noodles and spaghetti sauce. That's spaghetti with a noodle change.
Try this one night and your family will fall in love!
1 pound lean ground beef uncooked
1/2 chopped onion
2 c tomato juice or V8
1 cup water
2 cups macaroni
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t chili powder
1 8oz can tomato sauce
Add all of the ingredients at once in a deep skillet. Yes the macaroni is not cooked yet. Boil for 10 minutes or until the macaroni is done. Stirring occasionally. Want to cook the macaroni first? go for it!
I should add: you are more than welcome to cook rinse and drain your hamburger and pre cook your noodles :) I do this too. Back when my mom was growing up they didn't count calories and they used all the fat that was in their ingredients it seemed! LOL
So feel free to make the adjustments to how its prepared The outcome is the same yummy goulash that tasted like moms :)
