Ground Beef Goulash

Ground Beef Goulash

This year I hope to share with you a lot of easy meals such as this ground beef goulash.  We’re all busy, and most of us have at least a few days a month where we need a quick and easy meal.  For others, that’s the case pretty much every evening.

It’s important to have your pantry stocked so that you can prepare such meals when the need arises.  A quick and easy homemade meal is going to save you money and probably be healthier than eating out.

There are a number of different goulash versions.  This one is similar to what my husband grew up with.

  1. Looks delish and so easy!

  2. That looks and sounds so good.. I used to eat something very similar when I was a kid. I’ll have to see if I can find some gluten-free noodles locally. I probably could order some, but I’d rather not. Thanks for sharing! Glad you all are feeling better!

    • Kim, My local stores finally got more gf foods in their stores. Every time I went to the local stores I asked why and when us can have gluten free foods in the the store. I showed them papers on products and information on where to buy them at. But I also been finding our foods in Super Wal Mart stores. You just need to ask all the time!

  3. I have good memories of goulash – my mom used to make one almost like this one (but not gluten-free), and I always loved it. This one looks good and beefy!

  4. Thanks for the recipe! I pinned it and I’m going to make this for dinner tonight. Need something warm and satisfying. :)

    Another awesome recipe, Linda. Thank you! Made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit with all of our (9) children. Next, I plan on making your recipe for Chicken and Brown Rice in the slow cooker. You have so many winners!

  6. Kevin says:

    Don’t have tomato sauce – gonna use GF brown gravy instead :-)

  7. Kathy says:

    Can’t wait to try this. What kind of side dish would you serve with it?

  8. Andrew says:

    What could you substitute the tomato sauce/tomatoes with? Allergic to soy, tomato, corn, among other things.

  9. Jasmine Schwaid says:

    Sounds great. However where to buy French bread

  10. Ellen Thompson says:

    My Mom used to make this while we growing up. Only she added peas. Delish.

  11. Debby says:

    Help .. I’ve been ‘saving’ recipes from your site but I can’t ‘find’ my recipes. I tap on Go to my box and I go nowhere. Please help.

  12. Eleyn says:

    I’m making this tonight and might add corn. Thank you!

  13. Bella Davis says:

    This looks yummy and my hubby is Celiac and most meals at home is Gluten Free so this is another great dish, I make different GF pasta dishes and will give this a go ????????

  14. Kathy says:

    Made this today and it is very good– next time will make some biscuits (gluten free of course) to go with this
