"Goulash over mashed potatoes was my birthday meal of choice when I was growing up," recalls Jennifer Willingham of Kansas City, Missouri. "Now I make my mother's tangy recipe for my family, and they like it, too."
- 2-1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cups water
- 3/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cold water
- Hot cooked noodles or mashed potatoes
- In a Dutch oven, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the water, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, sugar, salt, mustard and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine flour and cold water until smooth; stir into the meat mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with noodles or potatoes.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary. Yield: 6 cups.
