Goulash over mashed potatoes was my birthday meal of choice when I was growing up. Now I make my mother's tangy recipe for my family, and they like it, too. —Jennifer Willingham, Kansas City, Missouri

"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."

"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."
