I love good 'ole comfort foods. Growing up my mama made comfort foods nightly. One of my very favorites is good 'ole southern goulash. I have changed mine up over the years to various different ways to make. The nice thing about hamburger dishes or casseroles is the ability to switch it up occasionally.
The recipe below is for simple, quick and easy goulash. It is great with Sweet Yellow Cornbread!
1/2 lb macaroni
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 large onion, diced
Salt, Lowry's pepper, chili powder, red pepper flakes
2 (14.5 oz) cans whole stewed tomatoes, undrained
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup tomato juice
Bowl the macaroni according to package directions. While it’s cooking, brown the ground beef and onion together in an extra-large skillet. Add in Salt, Pepper & 3-4 big dashes of the Lowry's Garlic Pepper. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of Red Pepper Flakes. Drain and season with salt, pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, mash tomatoes with potato masher and add to beef along with the ketchup. Drain macaroni and add to the beef mixture, stirring well. Add additional seasoning as needed. I generally will add a couple more big dashes (or a teaspoon of the Lowry's Garlic Pepper)
This is a great dish for leftovers or to take to a potluck. I generally serve mine with mash potatoes and sweet yellow cornbread.
