One Pot American Goulash
For me, American Goulash is a classic family dinner. I remember my mom making it all the time and my family loved it. It was one of the first things I made myself as a college student on my own. My sister and I loved making up different goulash type meals! I know there is a Hungarian Goulash, but this is a classic American goulash. For this recipe, I made everything in the same pot so less clean up, but the same great taste! We served it with a side salad, and my family ate it up!
Start with your bell peppers, onions, garlic, and ground beef. You will want to brown the ground beef and allow the vegetables to get nice and tender. Once those are cooked drain any fat you may have then add in diced tomatoes. I like to add in the diced tomatoes and then season. Otherwise, they could have a pretty overpowering taste in this dish. After seasoning, I allowed it all to cook together for just a few minutes.
Next I added my corn, tomato sauce, broth, and noodles. Put a lid on top and allow them to cook until noodles are tender. Then comes the best part, the cheese! I added one cup into the pot and mixed, and then placed a half cup on top. I put the lid back on just long enough for the cheese to melt. This is a great family style, classic Goulash that my kids can now say is Grandma’s recipe!
