Busy Day Goulash

There are days when we don't have time to spend endless hours preparing a gourmet meal for our family and this is a great recipe for a day like that. It is also a great dish to take to a covered dish or fellowship meal.

Busy Day Goulash

Busy Day Goulash
Slow Cooker
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 pounds lean ground beef or Ground Turkey
2 medium onions chopped
1 green bell Pepper chopped
1 1/2 cups Tomato Sauce or 114 oz. can
1 1/2 cups Diced Tomatoes with juice or 1 14 oz. can
1 3/4 cup corn or 1 14 oz. can
4 cups beef broth or 2 14 oz. cans
3 teaspoons chili powdered
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon parsley
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups dry Elbow Macaroni (of your choice)
1 cups sharp Cheddar cheese grated
1 cup Monterrey Jack cheese grated
Salt and Pepper to taste
Option: Dash of cayenne pepper
Brown beef, onion and pepper in a hot skillet, I do not use oil. Add 1/2 cup of water to the skillet to remove all the goodies from the bottom.
Pour the beef, onion, and pepper mix into the slow cooker. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomato, corn, beef broth, chili powder, oregano, parsley, cinnamon, and macaroni. Mix well and cover the slow cooker.
Cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 3 hours. At the end of 3 hours put the cheese on the top of the Goulash, replace the lid and cook for 30 more minutes on low.
Option Tip
If you like a firmer macaroni, add the macaroni after 1 hour when you turn the Slow Cooker to low, then the macaroni will be firmer.

  13. Hey Miz Helen! I'm Chef Corey from Family Fresh Meals. This goulash is perfect for the cold winter we have ahead of us here in IL! I just started a new recipe Linky called Sunday Funday.This recipe would be perfect for the first week theme CROCKPOT. Each week will be a new theme. Once this Sunday Funday gets going, I would LOVE to do a random gift card giveaway each week. But I am going to need a good amount of posts to start that, so come join the fun each week. At the end of the week, a recipe/blog will be picked at random to be the featured recipe for the following week. Hope you stop by and join!

  19. Hi, Miz Helen. Your goulash looks delicious! We make something very similar to yours and for whatever reason, it is called "Johnny Macaroni." (not sure who Johnny is!) Anyway, yours looks great and I like that you use two cheeses. Thanks for sharing and have a great week.
