Mom’s Goulash

by 247tasty

I’ve never known Goulash until I tasted it when we visited my in-laws. I instantly fell in love and asked for the recipe. I’ve been making it since. My kids love it and my husband is so happy because it’s the exact dish that he grew up with. This dish is beefy, full of tomatoes, and you can use either noodles or macaroni. But I prefer macaroni, you can use whatever you like and the result is the same delicious, flavorful, and fulfilling Goulash. I’m happy to share this recipe with you. I’m confident that this will hit your dinner menu. There are a lot of Goulash recipes you’ll find on the net, but this is the simplest. Thanks to my in-law for teaching me how making it and for giving me the recipe. My husband is crazy about it. It’s a keeper. I’ll pass this along with my kids and my kids to theirs. Try it for yourself, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as we do. Follow the recipe and you’re almost there. Enjoy!
