I love a warm and comforting bowl of Goulash with some melty cheddar cheese on top. This one-pot dish has everything you are asking for – red sauce, spices, pasta, and ground beef. A perfect combination that made this perfect Old fashioned Goulash like what our Grandmothers used to make. Don’t be afraid to tweak this recipe but this is awesome as is. Always a big hit, kids and adults approved, and you can never go wrong because it is pretty straightforward. Mouthwatering and tastes great as leftovers.


2 pounds lean ground beef
2 large yellow onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups of water
1 cup beef broth
Two 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
Two 15-ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon oregano
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon pepper
2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

How to make Old Fashioned Goulash

Step 1: Saute the ground beef in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Break the meat up and cook until no longer pink. Remove excess fat.

Step 2: Add and saute the onions with the ground beef for about 5 minutes or until the onions are tender. Pour in 2 cups water and a cup of beef broth followed by the tomato sauce, tomatoes, garlic, bay leaves, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings. Stir well before placing the lid on. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes more.

Step 3: Then, add in the macaroni and stir well. Cover and simmer for another 4 to 5 minutes or until the pasta is al dente. Don’t overcook the pasta.

Step 4: Take out of the heat and remove the bay leaves.

Step 5: Serve the Goulash warm with shredded cheddar cheese on top. Enjoy!
