inexpensive goulash recipe
Looking for a recipe that doesn’t cost a lot and can be made with just a few ingredients? You will want to make this goulash recipe. It can be made with fresh veggies or it can be made with canned, whichever you have on hand.
The veggies need to be chopped into 1/2″ to 1 inch pieces. Having a can of crushed tomatoes will work in place of stewed tomatoes as well.
Make sure to cook the macaroni until it’s al dente. This will allow the macaroni to absorb some of the flavor from the goulash and not become soggy looking pasta.
You can freeze leftovers (if there are any) and enjoy later.
As an alternative to using tomato juice, you could use a can of tomato soup to add flavor to this recipe and 1/2 cup of water.
1 pound ground beef
1 quart stewed tomatoes (or 1 small onion, small green pepper and 1 can crushed tomatoes)
2 cups macaroni
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 – 5.5 cans tomato juice
In a large pan, brown the ground beef and add black pepper. (if you are using fresh onions and peppers, chop and add in while ground beef browns so they soften).
In a medium size pot, cook the macaroni in water until al dente.
Once brown, add the stewed tomatoes to the ground beef and bring to a simmer.
Drain the macaroni and mix into the ground beef.
Add the 2 cans of tomato juice.
Allow to simmer so everything is heated up.
Serve and enjoy.
