Bobby's Goulash

I know, I know. I like goulash. It's not fancy, but I love it anyway. I saw this at Mommy's Kitchen and was inspired to give goulash a new take.

The verdict?
I made a half recipe, and it was plenty for dinner and leftovers. I think the next time I make it, I would reduce the Italian Seasoning, just a personal preference. The resting time really thickened up the dish, and was a good idea I'm going to try on my usual Goulash recipe.

Bobby’s Goulash

Recipe Courtesy of Paula Deen Online

2 lb lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon Paula Deen’s House Seasoning
3 tablespoon soy sauce
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
3 cups water
1 tablespoon Paula Deen’s Seasoned Salt
2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked

In a Dutch oven, saute the ground beef over medium-high heat until no pink remains. Break up the meat while sauteing. Spoon off any grease. Add the onions and garlic to the pot and saute until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water, along with the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, soy sauce, House Seasoning, and seasoned salt. Stir well. Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves, and allow the mixture to sit about 30 minutes more before serving. Serve with garlic bread and a salad.

Paula's House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
