Goulash, American Style

Linda Griffith


I have been making this for years and my family loves it. *It's a dish you can add anything too if you like. A good dish if you had a busy day and want to get out of the kitchen in a hurry. Made in one pot, so not a lot of clean up involved. Serve with garlic bread and a salad....Yummy

*Some of the things that are great to add are: Mushrooms, Kielbasa or Italian Sausage, Hot Peppers, Little Smokies, wieners to name just a few. Come up with your own and let me know what you added.
