    Craving goulash but wanted to make this..so I cut liquid back to 2 1/2 maybe 3 cups and i used beef broth I had in the fridge instead of water..whereas I cooked penne pasta separately in water and just added it to the beef mixture. Served it with garlic toast..Kudos to the one that submitted the recipe, good hearty beef flavor. Everyone enjoyed it.

    Very good! Next time I might add peas and corn... I also used 6 bouillion cubes instead of Granules.. I also made it without celery and onion since I have picky eaters.. I added onion powder though.

    PS..I only had beef bouillon cubes and not the stated granules. So I binged it at it said that 1 cube = 1 tsp. So I used 6 cubes for this particular recipe. Hope this helps.

    Very good, and very quick and easy. I put diced green peppers instead of carrots and celery and it was delicious.
