I created this recipe after trying goulash at a local restaurant. The blend of spices gives it great flavor, and it’s so easy on a weeknight! —Karen Schelert, Portland, Oregon

"This is quick to put together and really flavorful. We thought the cinnamon added a nice touch. Served it over rice and everyone enjoyed it."

"Good recipe, quick and easy. In the future, will omit cinnamon and use 1 can of soup and 1 can of tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes."

"iteach 5, it should not be called Hungarian Goulash,since it is so far away from it and not even comes close. Maybe ground beef stew? It would be a good recipe with this name."

"I made this for dinner tonight. I ran out of tomato soup so I had to substitute with one 8 oz can tomato sauce and 1 can of tomato paste and a tb of brown sugar. It was okay we placed it over egg noodles but it would be good on a bun."
