Dutch oven cooking at its very best. The recipe is one that my Mother always made for Tuesday evening supper when I was a child. Tuesdays were also Ironing Days, following Wash Days on Mondays. Our ironing board was set up in the kitchen so that Mother could watch her food as it cooked while she ironed. My sister and I sat at the kitchen table and cut out paper dolls. So many memories to savor.

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a Dutch oven or large pot, saute the ground beef over medium-high heat until no pink remains. Break up the meat as you stir. Drain to remove all grease and return to pot.

Continue cooking for 5 more minutes to brown meat slightly as it gives it so much great flavor if the meat caramelizes a little.

Add the onions and garlic and saute until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Add water, along with the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, soy and Worcestershire sauces. Stir well.

Add paprika, bay leaves, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and stir, then taste to correct seasonings. If adding corn, do so now. Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook over low heat for about 30 minutes so that flavors "marry".

Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 15 - 20 minutes until pasta is done. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves, and allow the mixture to sit about 15 minutes more before serving.

Serve with hot Italian bread and a green salad.

Servings: 8-10
Time:20 Minutes Preparation Time
60 Minutes Cooking Time

Source: My Mother's recipe with a few "tweaks" of my own which suited my family's tastebuds. My Mother cooked to please my Father, and we kids either ate it or did without. Today, mothers are a bit more lenient, and do their best to please everyone. The recipe makes enough for a large, healthy family with growing children.

Add water to frozen hamburger and cook over medium heat. Once the hamburger is no longer frozen, and the 3 cups of water starts to boil, add macaroni noodles, and stir it quite a bit. Then add tomato puree and salt and pepper to taste.

Besides Google...here's my favorite.

Equal parts spaghetti sauce and cranberry jelled (or whole fruit) sauce.

I use 2 lbs turkey burger, cooking it first. Some onion powder, s/p, and garlic powder. I throw in a small can of mushroom pieces, and some chopped black olives if you like them.

Mix with the right amount of mac. and you have a sweeter tasting goolash. I love this because it's not so "tomatoey"...

My husband came up with this back in the early 70's when we were stationed in Oklahoma and money was very tight.Brown 1 LB. hamburger ( or turkey burger nowdays), chopped onion, 1 can dark red kidney beans( NOT drained). Cube and boil any amount of potatos you wish. After all ingredients done,drain potatos leaving alittle of the water in. Add meat,onion and beans and simmer for about 15 minutes. Enjoy! To stretch, you can add in a can of light kidney bean and/or a can of whole kernal corn. Add some cornbread and you have a cheap and tummy warmin' meal.

I've been cooking this goulash for over 20 years. You can easily half the recipe if your family is small or you don't like eating leftovers.

Easy Skillet Goulash

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 (16 oz.) cans stewed tomatoes (cheap brand)
2 (15 oz.) cans red kidney beans (cheap brand)
1 cup macaroni (cheapest brand)
1 tsp. salt (or to suit your taste)
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
dash pepper

Optional: add canned or frozen corn

Brown ground beef and onion in a large skillet, drain excess fat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered 30 to 40 minutes, or until macaroni is cooked and tender, stirring occasionally. 8 servings.

Ingredients
1 lb. hamburger
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can corn
package macaroni and cheese (or leftover macaroni and cheese or your own homemade macaroni and cheese)
chopped onion (opt)
Directions
Cook hamburger, add onion, drain and keep in skillet. Add tomatoes and corn. Stir in cooked macaroni and cheese. Heat again until all is bubbly and hot.
Very simple and delicious

Source: This recipe is one my mom came up with using her leftovers. Macaroni and cheese was served at least once a week and she was/is excellent at stretching meals and using leftovers. We would have buttered bread with this as well.

I make mine with cheap ingredients and everyone loves it.

2 pounds of Shell noodles
2 pounds of Hamburger
1 Large can of Tomato Sauce
2 6 oz cans of Tomato Paste
1 "squirt" of Ketchup
16 oz of Cheese
Salt and Pepper

Brown the HAMBURGER in a skillet with SALT and PEPPER then drain off the grease. Boil NOODLES in water until almost done, they will cook the rest of the way when putting the rest of the ingredients together.

Mix HAMBURGER and NOODLES together with both cans of TOMATO PASTE and half of the TOMATO SAUCE add the KETCHUP and CHEESE. Mix together. If you find that the Goulash looks like it needs a little more sauce then add it, I have found it depends on the brand of things I buy per how much I need to add.

Happy Cookng!

- hamburger, browned (season w/ dried onion & garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste)
- 1 can condensed tomato soup
- 1 C hot water
- 1 packet chili mix (you know, like you find with the sauce and gravy packets)
- prepared noodles (we like Rigatoni)

brown burger, drain noodles, mix hot water, soup and chili seasoning together; add to burger & noodles. VERY good. We like to serve with coleslaw ... sounds odd but it's good.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 box elbow macaroni
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cans tomato paste
  • garlic and onion powders - optional
  • salt and pepper

Directions

Boil macaroni according to package and drain. Meanwhile, brown ground beef seasoning with salt, pepper, and a shake or two of garlic and onion powders. Add tomato paste to ground meat and mix, sometimes I add a splash of water to thin it out. Add macaroni to ground meat and combine, adjust salt and pepper to taste.

This serves my family of four with leftovers and they love it!
