Here is an easy printable recipe!
I hope you enjoy. 🙂
This really is the absolute BEST goulash I’ve ever had. It is really simple, and is even better reheated. My 4 year old actually ate it, and anyone who knows him knows that he is a SUPER picky eater.
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3 cups water
- 2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
- 2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (I didn't use this)
- 3 bay leaves (I didn't use this either)
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Paula Deen's House Seasoning (Again, didn't use this in mine)
- 1 tbsp salt
- 2 cups elbow macaroni (uncooked)
- *I added garlic powder, seasoning salt, and a little pepper to mine.
- In large pot, cook ground beef over medium heat until browned, spoon off any extra grease.
- Add onion and garlic, saute until transparent.
- Add 3 cups of water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, all seasonings, soy sauce, and bay leaves (if you choose to use them). Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- Add macaroni and allow to simmer an additional 20 minutes or until tender. Remove bay leaves before serving.

This stuff is GOOD!!!
*Some people have complained that the recipe is too salty. I like salty food, and I didn’t think so. You might adjust the salt the recipe calls for if you are sensitive to salt.
I started this blog a few years back for a place to share my favorite things.. recipes, my love of photography, traveling, my crazy randomness, etc. I had no idea that it would turn into something that so many people would take interest in. For everyone stopping by, I truly thank you. Thank you, thank you!!! I love reading all of the comments on my posts.. and under this recipe.. the additions made, the way some of you make yours that differs from this one.. all the different names you grew up calling it. 99% of the comments have been nice.. The thing that does surprise me, although I guess it really shouldn’t.. are all of the hateful comments. I have been flogged in numerous comments for this not being ‘true Hungarian goulash’. I don’t think I ever claimed that it was. It is a recipe that I posted on my blog because I made it for my family and we liked it. I’ve got a tough skin, so the hateful comments don’t bother me. If you need to vent your frustrations about how I’m personally insulting anyone who happens to be Hungarian, then by all means do so… but, if you would rather use your time in a more productive way, you can Google ‘Hungarian Goulash’ and find a more suitable recipe.
Ahh, Bud and Sissy.. white trash love at it’s best.
I know, I know… this movie oozes cheese. BUT, I love it. I own it.. and every time it comes on I absolutely have to watch it.
Some of my favorite lines:
Sissy: “My legs are sweatin’ Mama.”
Bud: “And the best thing about it is it’s got wheels. We can pick it up and move it if we want to!”
Bud: “I wanna apologize clear back to when I hit you the first time.”
Yep, doesn’t get better than that.
What can I say? It’s George. Can he act? Well, no. Does he look good and is he absolutely awesome? Well, duh. The man could stand there doing nothing, and I would pay to watch. As long as I can remember I have loved George. He is the King of Country, just ask my son… I’ve taught him well. The movie is worth watching even if you mute it. Well, that’s not entirely true, the soundtrack is pretty awesome.. because of course it’s George. All hail the King!
Some of my favorite lines…
Lula: “If it wasn’t for me, you’d probably still be singing in some run-down rat hole for a bunch of fat girls from Iowa.”
Dusty: “Yeah, and if it wasn’t for me, you’d probably be a waitress there.”
Ernest: “The funny thing about that little white speck on the top of chicken s___ . That little white speck is chicken s___ too.”
These are just a couple of many, many cheesy movies I love. Television.. well that’s a whole other subject. Just wait until my Dallas obsession post…. because oh yes, there will be one. 🙂
If you like iced tea.. then you’ll love Ice Chest Tea.
What you will need:
1 – 4 gallon ice chest
2 cups instant Lipton Iced Tea
6 cups sugar (more or less depending on taste)
1 bag crushed ice
Begin by filling ice chest with 1 gallon of water. Bring 6 cups of water to boil then add sugar and tea.. mixing until dissolved. Add to ice chest. Add bag of ice, sliced oranges, limes and lemons to the ice chest. Continue filling with water until the ice chest is full. Mix well. The longer the tea sits the more the flavors of the fruit will come out. Also, all of these measurements are to my taste. Use more or less depending on yours.
