I am the 7th of 9 children and we grew up with little means. Our mom would make rice and goulash in the winter, using tomatoes she had canned in the summer and onions and peppers from the garden that she had diced and frozen. It was one of our favorite meals. She served it with homemade biscuits and butter.

All of my siblings still make our mom's goulash!

How to Make Grandma Evalyn's Goulash

Step-by-Step

  1. In a heavy iron skillet over medium high heat, cook onion and green pepper in bacon drippings. When the onions are translucent, add ground beef.
