One Pot American Goulash
My grandmother would make goulash quite frequently while I was growing up. It is one of those dishes that I like to make when my food budget is tight. Inexpensive meals are the key to stretching my food budget. Using ground beef always saves us. Our Slow Cooker Meatloaf is normally my go to recipe when I have ground beef because I know everyone loves it. Last month I made this recipe and everyone asked for it again this week. PERFECT!
One pound of ground beef some elbows, canned tomatoes and spices makes this dinner inexpensive. I paired our American Goulash with a salad and some garlic bread for the kiddos. Since everything is cooked in just one pot, there is no mess in my kitchen. After I have had a comfort food meal the last thing I want to think about is dishes, ha ha!
