RECIPE: Family Goulash Recipe

Posted by mtcrafter (My Page) on

I love this forum. The range of recipes is fantastic.

My goulash recipe was developed from my m-i-l's recipe. It's one of my husbands favorites.

1.5 lb. lean ground beef, browned
1 onion coarsely chopped and cooked with the beef.
2 cups of uncooked macaroni
1 qt of canned tomatoes
2 tbsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
sugar to taste
1 can evaporated milk

cook the macaroni and drain. add tomatoes, beef and onions, paprika, salt and pepper, sugar. We like a sweet and sour taste with the sugar and tomatoes.
cook for around 20 minutes or so to set the flavors.

warm the canned milk in a glass measuring cup in the microwave and then stir the hot milk into the macaroni mixture and it is ready to serve. By heating the milk, it won't curdle when it hits the acid tomatoes. My m-i-l used cream as we were milking a dozen cows at the time. canned milk keeps well.
