Goulash – Version 2
When I was a kid my mom made Goulash all the time. It is one of those hearty, delicious but not too expensive meals and it makes a lot! It is great for family, potlucks or guests. This is my recipe (Goulash – Version 2). The first Goulash recipe I posted (it’s in the categories under casseroles) belongs to my husband and how he ate it growing up. His is made using tomato soup. Mine is made using diced canned tomatoes with herbs in it. Give them both a try to see which one you like best.
In a large deep pot, boil pasta according to the package directions.
Drain pasta and set aside.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the onions
and ground beef until the ground beef is no longer pink.
Stir in the dry ingredients and garlic.
Add the tomatoes and tomato paste and mix.
Simmer for 5 minutes until hot.
Mix the sauce and the pasta together.
Place into a 4 quart casserole dish.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, covered, for 30 minutes then serve.

I made Hungarian goulash and rice yesterday.
Oh we love that too! I make mine with round steak. Ask that good sauce with the rice. Yum! I haven’t made that in a while thanks!
In the rice I added tarrogan and lime juice.
Nice addition! Great idea thank you!
You are Welcome. ⚘💕
We did that in a skillet without the spices. I like your version better.
Thank you so much! There are many ways to make this, I just happen to love the spices. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Have a great week!
Looks so yummy! 🙂
One of our favorites, thank you!
My mother made a goulash that her mother made and simply called “push”. No macaroni, or rice. It was repeated layers of ground beef, chopped onions, sliced carrots and potatoes, seasoned with canned tomatoes, salt and pepper, and sprinkled with a bit of flour to make a little gravy. My kids didn’t like the pulp from the canned tomatoes, so I substituted a small can of tomato sauce with a bit of water. It was baked covered, then the cover was removed to allow it to roast. It always disappeared very quickly.
Fascinating! My husband makes his with canned tomato soup. There are so many ways to make it but when you find one the kids like…..you always make it!!! Hahaha
My husband makes ‘Ampa’s Sketti’ this way!.
I have never heard of that! Love the recipe!
It was his version to my Grand-daughter’s dinner when I worked nights! He would use spaghetti sauce and penne pasta and after cooking the pasta, stirred it together…our grand-daughter named it Ampa (couldn’t say grampa, it stuck! I’m Amma!) I always used reg spaghetti…so his was his!
What a touching story! Thank you for sharing it!
Hungarian Goulash is my all time favorite. But, I have to try your recipe as well. Sounds good! Looks good too!
Delicious -merci – very happy meal – amitiés 🙂
Thank you so much!
Goulash is always made with boiled rice. Not ever heard of it with pasta dear. Still try anything here. tell you later the family verdict. every one will tell you that it is Hungarian but no it is from The Russian steps Cossak style with pork shoulder, belly and garlic lots of garlic then two jars of Adzika Russian tomato broth with liver and chilli fried onions, all in paste. some add Dill herb to this and really it sounds horrid but you sit up for more. Russian friends of mine both solicitors made it in a pot over fire while our wives swam in the sea .Boy it looked horrid but all of us devoured the lot with glass of Russian Vodka and a glass of strong fruit juice, natural stuff.i go for the true cossak horse man style myself. You can only get Adzika from from a Russian. they do sell in jars but it is nothing like the true stuff
Wow I would definitely try it your way…..especially the Russian Vodka with the fruit juice….hahahaha
Okay, this is just weird after the Jello pudding pie thing! My father just forwarded me a recipe for goulash on Saturday because he wants me to make it! INSANE
HAhahaha that’s so funny! Looks like you better get cooking!
We have a different version of Goulash but we’ve also had this one before too.
I also make a Hungarian Goulash which is made with round steak.
Our Goulash is just cheese, macaroni noodles, and stewed beef.
I am loving all the different recipes for goulash. I wish I could try them all! So you don’t use any red sauce at all just cheese? How do you cook your beef?
We throw it in the crockpot on low with water for 8 hours until tender then we put in the noodles and once the noodles are done you can add your cheese. You can drain off some of the extra soup if you choose that just depends on your preference.
Nice! Thank you for sharing!
My oh my! Would you look at that scrumptious dish! Yummy! Dear, Diane….stop making me hungry lol 🙁 lolol God bless!
Thank you so much! You are always so kind. God Bless Tammy!
You’re welcome much Diane!
Thanks much haha!
Hello. How are you? Goulash is one of my favorite dishes and my mother used to make it quite a bit. I never learned how to make it. or ask her for the recipe. Your recipe looks easy and you can put it in oven. yum.
I think all of our mothers made a dish similar to mine. It was a staple in our family. I hope this tastes as good as you remember. Thanks and have a great week!
