My Family’s Version of “Goulash”

Growing up, my parents owned a business, and spent many hours there.  Often times, my Mom would resort to quick, go to meals, because by the time we all got home, not only was everyone tired, and sometimes a little grouchy, we were always hungry.

We always had homemade spaghetti sauce in the freezer, so many weeks we would have spaghetti 3 times, just because it was easy.  This recipe we always called “Goulash,” though I don’t think it actually resembles authentic goulash that much at all.  We just called it that because we didn’t have another name for it.

It is a great go-to meal and I still crave it sometimes.  It’s made with staples that most people keep on hand all the time and can literally go from walking through the door to sitting down eating in 20 minutes.  And some nights, quick, easy, tasty and filling is totally where it’s at.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. lean or extra lean ground beef

granulated garlic

1 large can tomato soup

1 can beans in tomato sauce

3 cups 5 minute instant rice

Directions:

Brown ground beef in large skillet with cover.  Season with granulated garlic to taste.  Once browned, add soup and beans.  Stir to combine.  Allow to simmer for 5 minutes or so.

Serve over cooked rice.

 

That’s it, that’s all.  And I’m telling you, it’s soooo good.

Enjoy!
