These Goulash Recipes contain some of the best old fashioned meals full of beef, tomatoes, elbow macaroni, and shredded cheddar cheese. Your whole family will love them!
If you're looking to recreate a dish that your grandmother used to make for you, then this is the right place to look! Goulash has been around for hundreds of years and is one of the simplest yet most delicious dinner recipes that you can make!
Goulash is known as a quick and easy dish to create and it really is, especially when you use a ground meat, tomato sauce, and pasta combinations. However, if you want to fix a more traditional Hungarian goulash recipe with chunks of beef, plan on at least a couple of hours of simmering for tender meat. It is still a simple meal to prepare, but unfortunately you can’t get the old fashioned goulash recipe on the table within 30 minutes!
Most goulash recipes call for stovetop cooking of the ingredients but anyone with a crock pot knows how wonderful they are for cooking any kind of stew. If you don’t want to or can’t keep an eye on the stove, using a crock pot is a great way to tenderize the meat. Slow cooker goulash recipes have a lot of flavor without all the hassle of watching a pan.

This is an awesome recipe. I made it and we loved it! I just shared it with a friend and she is making it for her family tonight! Ignore the rude comments because this Goulash is awesome!!!
I'm so glad that you love this recipe and that you were able to share it with your friends! And thank you for the positive support I really appreciate it! Let me know if you try any of our other recipes that you like!
This has NOTHING to do with Goulash!!!! You are totally misrepresenting the dish. Might as well call it Taco casserole ( which may be more accurate) or Chinese stir fry ( since it would not resemble that either)
Oh my goodness your post was so rude, IK be nice! My grandmother used to make the same exact dish and she called it Goulash. There are probably hundreds of "goulash" recipes in the world, with hundreds of variations, so relax a little.
Shauna, thank you for sharing this recipe, I appreciate that you took the time to put this together and share it. I am going to make it for my family tonight for dinner. I'm sure it will be delicious!
I'm Hungarian and this has absolutely nothing in common with Gulyas (goulash). This is a pasta bake, that is all! Nice to eat but nothing to do with Hungarian Gulyas.
Hi! Can't get to the last recipe either, Old Fashioned Goulash...

There are 4 kids,2 parents, and a grandmother. We eat dinner together at least 5 days a week. On a fixed income, we do this instead of going out. Thank you for this opportunity.
In step #1 At the end of the step it says to remove from heat then step #2..It says something like Add garlic and olive oil and until meat is fully cooked? I'm guessing that means you put it back on the heat? If so why take it off in the first place? Sorry if that sounds bad, just wondering if their is a reason? And also thinking this all wouldn't fit in a skillet?
I am starving now!

What is Adobo seasoning? What can I use instead of it.
The Best Blog Recipes says
Hi, Valerie! It kind of reminds me of taco seasoning - it has garlic, oregano, cumin, onion powder, black pepper, etc. If you can't find it in the spice aisle at your grocery store for some reason, I would suggest Googling and using a homemade version! Enjoy!
I was just craving this the other day!
Thank you for sharing ?
