Every family has their list of simple hamburger meals. I’m sharing one with you that is so simple, and you only need a few ingredients.   Goulash. I hoped I spelled it right! 

Sometimes Goulash is our go-to when we realize we are out of spaghetti noodles!! Always keep macaroni noodles around for emergencies! If we aren't making Goulash, we are making Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese.

We love using our own stewed tomatoes for this recipe. If you do not have stewed tomatoes, use your favorite tomato sauce, or stewed tomatoes from the store.

Now that my kids are getting bigger, and busy with sports.  It takes a lot of food to feed them. We always prepare meals with two pounds of beef.  If we are lucky, we have leftovers. Sometimes. 

2 pounds hamburger
1 tsp salt & pepper
1 small onion diced
1 box elbow macaroni
2 jars of your favorite sauce, we use stewed tomatoes


  1. Boil water in a large pot with a lid.
  2. Brown Hamburger, diced onion, salt and pepper in a large skillet with a lid
  3. Drain grease from hamburger if needed and return to skillet.
  4. Cook pasta, drain and rinse.
  5. Add stewed tomatoes to the cooked ground beef, and stir in cooked pasta.  


  • I only use half of the box of macaroni. I cook the entire box and store the cooked macaroni in the refrigerator for another meal.  

Serve with Parmesan Cheese or shredded cheese.

Went to Bulgaria in the late 80s with my parents and we stopped off at a hotel kitchen that served us goulash. I remember them bringing it out to us half cooked, then they poured some kind of methylated spirits into a bowl and set it on fire, so the goulash cooked in front of us on the table while we ate starters. It was fucking BOILING and I had to blow on it for 10 minutes before I could eat, but it was amazing. Still, remember the taste of goulash with pasta sauce now 30 years later.
