One Pot Goulash

Lynn demonstrates how to make One Pot Goulash.  This can be made with ground beef or ground turkey.  A great way to get a meal on the table quickly during a busy week.  Add some bread and a green salad or vegetable and it will complete the dinner.  This makes 4-5 servings, but can easily be doubled.


  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ½ green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 14-1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1-1/4 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

In a 2-1/2 quart pan, brown ground beef or turkey over medium-high heat until no longer pink and broken up.  Add onion, green pepper and mushrooms.  Cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes.  Drain, if desired or needed.  To the beef or turkey, add garlic, water, tomato sauce, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, paprika, sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium-low.  Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Add the elbow macaroni and stir well.  Return lid and continue to simmer for 15 minutes or until the noodles are done.  Allow to sit covered for 5-10 minutes and mix well before serving.  Grate some Parmesan cheese on top if desired.
