Goulash, meaning herdsman, is a Hungarian meat and vegetable stew seasoned with paprika. There are many versions of this dish and each country tends to have their own Goulash. Goulash is popular in Hungry, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, the United States, Germany, The Netherlands, northern Croatia and the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. This is the Goulash that I grew up on. It is totally a guilty pleasure.


1 Cup Uncooked Macaroni or Rigatoni

1 Pound Ground Beef

1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms

½ Chopped Onion

2 Minced Garlic Cloves

16 Ounces Tomato Sauce

¾ Cup Water

1 Bay Leaf

1 Teaspoon Oregano

2 Tablespoons Paprika

½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain noodles and set aside. In a large skillet cook the ground beef with the minced garlic, onion and mushrooms until browned. Make sure to drain off the excess fat. Add the tomato sauce, water, bay leaf, oregano, paprika, ground pepper and salt to the ground beef mixture. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the cooked noodles and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Serves 6
