This recipe for basic old fashion American Goulash comes together quickly for a simple easy pasta supper.
Ground Beef and Elbow Macaroni Dinner
My mom would make this easy ground beef dinner a few times a month for us. Back when I was a kid, we just called ground beef plain old hamburger meat. Now you can get 80% Lean, 85% Lean, 90% Lean, Ground Turkey, or Turkeyburger. Use whatever you like. I use whatever’s on sale, as my husband and I aren’t fans of Ground Turkey or Turkey Burger.
Of course, everything homemade tastes better, because you can control the ingredients and seasonings. I won’t use the box mixes similar to Goulash. It’s just too easy to make your own.
To make supper come together even faster, I prepare Freezer Meal packets of ground beef ahead, that already have diced tomatoes and onions in it. I freeze in quart bags, about 2 cups each.
