Hamburger Goulash Recipe

"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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 1. 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.

"Useful alternative to Hamburger Helper. Nice consistency; definitely try over potatoes. More than doubled the garlic powder, but could use a bit more zest. Overall makes a good weeknight meal for our family from convenient ingredients. Would make it again."

"after seeing the reviews I made my own changes and added 1 large green pepper, 1 large onion, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 3 small bulbs of fresh garlic...next time I will add some peas and maybe some carrots... my husband and my two sons all ate 2 plates... all gone"

"This seemed to be missing something. The picture shows some green specks. I am thinking they might be green pepper. It would be much better with some green pepper added. I do plan to make it one more time, adding some green pepper, then decide if I want to keep it or not. I served it over mashed potatoes, which worked well."

"This is not worth the effort. Bland and tasteless. I was able to salvage it with a can of chili beans, some taco seasoning and a little bit of salsa."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is one of our regular dishes. I have made this many, many times since I first found it in an issue back in 2003 (I think). I do cut back the ground beef to 1.5 lbs since it didn't seem to be "saucy" enough. I then serve it over egg noodles. Very good!"
