Skillet Goulash-Mom's way

My mom would make this goulash in the wintertime, using ground beef because it was easy on the budget, and she made it in a large cast iron skillet. This was pure comfort food.
Even though my dad was Hungarian he loved this American version.
Mom did make the real Hungarian Goulash for him every once in a while,though. Which was very similar to: Shelia Senghas's- Hungarian Goulash.
