"Very yummy and easy recipe for a weeknight dinner :) Only gave it 4 stars because it badly needed salt! I didn't brown the meat and it turned out delicious, also cooked it in the oven on 300C for 2-1/2 hours."

"Delicious!!! My husband loved it and has already requested I make it again and I will!

But i doubled the noodles to 2 cups which worked out much better. I could see I was going to have a lot of meat mixture, even though I followed the recipe. Wonderful flavor!"

"More of a mild bbq flavor, sweet. It was not what I was looking for. Wasted a lot of good beef on this one.

If you like that bbq flavor with noodles, I guess it would be all right."

"I grew up with my mom serving this dish. We call it Hungarian Goulash and it is wonderful. All of my children love it too. I use a pressure cooker to cook the meat and that reduces the cook time to 20 min."
