Eat at Bett's

Our Passion for Food came from our Mom

Mom’s Goulash

Our mom loved to make the old fashion, simple, comfort foods. This very simple recipe has been a family favorite for years. Rhonda, one of our sisters, has taken the time to break down this recipe into measurements, but in reality, mom hardly ever measured her ingredients. It was always “a little of this, a dash of that, oh after tasting it I think it needs a little more of this…” That is how this all American Goulash should be approached, the measurements are just a starting point.

1 lb. of ground beef (round or sirloin is the best)
1 Tbl. garlic powder
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 small onion (finely chopped)
2 stalks of celery (chopped)
1 16 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 sm. can of cream of mushroom soup
1 lb. of elbow noodles


Brown beef in a large skillet, while beef is browning, add the onions and celery and cook until softened. Drain. Add remaining ingredients, except noodles. Let simmer for at least 20 minutes. In a large pot, bring some water to a boil and add the elbow noodles. Cook, drain and add to sauce, a little at a time. Heat through.

  1. Okay the fitness plan starts tomorrow after we eat this! I haven’t had goulash in years!

  2. I made it three weeks ago and Lyniene, came by and ended having dinner with us and truly enjoyed it. She never makes it anymore either.

  3. It was tasty, although it makes A LOT!

  4. I love to make Goulash, but this sounds a little more flavorful than mine. I will definitely try it! Thanks! Donna
