I’m not the best at grabbing stuff out of the fridge and managing to make a great meal out of it. Success for me happens when I have a recipe to follow. Jazz teases me because of how I prepare to cook because, well, I have these tiny glass bowls and I measure everything out into them. Yes, even the pinches and dashes
So here’s the recipe for goulash that I made last night and there’s a photo of it simmering I really liked this and it was super easy to make…after a trying day. Jazz liked it too, and it’s now one of his choices when it’s my night to cook
1 pound ground beef (we use sirloin)
1 medium onion, chopped (~1/2 cup)
1 can (16 oz) tomatoes (we use stewed w/o spices and diced up)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup water (I added another 1/2 cup)
1-1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp basil leaves
1/8 tsp marjoram leaves
3 oz uncooked fine noodles/rice (~ 1-1/2 cups — we used alphabet soup noodles just because)
Cook and stir meat and onion in large skillet until meat is brown. Drain off any fat. Stir in tomatoes (with liquid) and remaining ingredients.
Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until noodles/rice are tender, about 20 minutes.
Serve and Enjoy!
~5 servings (1 cup each)
Do you have a favorite recipe you bring out for those nights when you just need something simple? Because I might just need them…
