Speedy Goulash from Gooseberry Patch’s 101 Hearty Recipes – YUMMY!


  • 8 ounce package elbow macaroni, uncooked (I used gluten free – and it was awesome!)
  • 1 lb ground beef (I used venison ’cause that’s what I had)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 T paprika
  • 1 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 t ground cumin (sold me on this…my FAVORITE spice of all time – well neck and neck with cinnamon)
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 3 T sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.  Meanwhile, brown meat in a large skillet over medium heat.  While meat is cooking grate onion and garlic directly into meat (I diced mine).  Add spices and mix well.  When meat is just cooked, drain.  Add undrained tomatoes, warm through.  Stir in sour cream, salt pepper and cooked macaroni, serve immediately.  Serves 6.

THIS IS WONDERFUL in all the right ways!  Super duper easy and fast.  Easy to convert to gluten free.  And delicious!  Past everyone’s taste test.

This Speedy Goulash sounds yummy! Sounds about like mine except for the sour cream and nutmeg. I’ll be fixing it one night this week.

This looks a lot like goulash my mom used to make. I can’t wait to try it and see if it brings back old memories.

This is so like my mom’s goulash. Minus all the spices and the sour cream. LOL. My mom’s is SUPER speedy! ;-)
