Pork and Beans Goulash

I am looking for a recipe for a goulash made with pork and beans, hamburger and it has vinegar in it. It is for my father in law, he is in a nursing home and would love to have some of the dishes that his wife (gone now) made for him.


Thanks for your help.

Hows this for ya??


2 pounds ground beef

2 pounds onions, roughly chopped

3 large cans tomatoes, whole, sauce, or puree

1 large can 'pork and' beans

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon ginger

2-4 bay leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 pound egg noodles (optional)


Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Onions may be added now or added with tomatoes. When meat is browned, set aside to cool. Drain when cool.

Put tomatoes in a large kettle, over medium heat, rinse can and add about a can of water. Add vinegar, sugar, cloves, ginger, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Add onions if you didn't brown them with beef. Add drained beef.

Bring mixture to a boil. When boiling, lover heat to a simmer. Cook for one hour. Add beans and simmer, stirring to prevent beans from sticking until beans are heated through, about 15 minutes.

Add noodles if you wish. They will thicken mixture if it is too thin. If a rich consistency, add 3/4 cup water, return to the boil and drop in noodles.

This gets better after it sits a day or so, you can use it for several meals

Happy Holidays, Julie

I make one similar to that, but use diced potatoes instead of the noodles. Will have to try it with noodles sometime...thanks!

Hope one of these help :)

As always, you can add or take away things from the recipe that you think may not be needed, like hot peppers and such.

Keep us updated please.
