Hope’s Goulash


It’s comfort food weather! Fall is the best season, and the foods that fit the season are some of my favorites.

I grew up eating Goulash, it was a favorite comfort food. Deep savory flavor that you can adapt to your own taste. Top with cheese and eat with some crusty french bread….I think I just drooled a little. It smells fantastic! 

This is also easily adapted to the crock pot, just brown Onions and meat, then dump all ingredients in crock pot and set on low


1 – 2 Tbsp oil
1 large~ onion, chopped
3 large cloves, garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef cooked & drained
1 lb Italian sausage cooked & drained (I like hot Italian sausage)
1 – 32 oz beef broth
2 cans 14.5 oz each – chopped tomatoes & tomato sauce
1 tsp each – garlic salt, chili powder, garlic powder, Onion powder,Paprika, salt & pepper – or to taste
1 Tbsp each – Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce &  Brown sugar
1 – 1 1/4 lb( about 2 1/2 cups ) – elbow macaroni


In a dutch oven, add some oil and brown the onions until tender. Add the garlic and cook another minute.
Crumble the ground beef & Italian sausage and cook until no longer pink. Drain and return to pot.

Stir in the tomatoes, sauce, seasonings, broth & Worcestershire sauce. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer & stir in the macaroni and cover pot. Continue simmering for about 30 minutes.

 Remove from heat and let sit for 15 – 20 minutes. Add more seasoning if necessary. If too thick, add more sauce or Broth.
