American Goulash


  • American Goulash
  • yield: 10 to 12 servings
  • A one pot meal that’s easy to put together and is great as leftovers.
  • I substituted a gluten-free pasta for wheat pasta and had good results. If you want this dish totally gluten-free read the label of your soy sauce. Most of it contains wheat, however, gluten-free soy sauce is available. The acidity of tomatoes in sauce tastes somewhat bitter. To offset, I included a tablespoon of sugar.
  • 2 large sweet onions diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 pounds ground beef 85/15
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced or crushed tomatoes (I used crushed because I had it on hand)
  • 2 15 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt I used Morton Season-All
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups macaroni pasta dry (I used a gluten- free corn elbow pasta. Wheat flour elbow pasta can be substituted.)


  • Add onions, garlic and ground beef to a large soup pot. Stir and cook until all the pink is gone from the meat and the onions are tender and translucent.
  • Add next 8 ingredients. Stir well.
  • Cover and let sauce simmer 30 minutes.
  • Add macaroni pasta. Cook until pasta is done.
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust.
