Hungarian Goulash Recipe-Sassy Townhouse Living

Adding Hungarian flavors to your dinner table with this traditional beef and pasta goulash can really kick up your meal plan! When I was a kid, the one recipe I remember my mom making that everyone flipped over was Hungarian Goulash. It’s a hearty meal that everyone loves and looks forward to the leftovers. You can’t go wrong with this recipe – it’s easy and if you have some beef handy, it’s a winner!

My mom had one secret ingredient that she used to kick her recipe up notches – don’t be shocked when I tell you what that is OK? Ketchup! Yep, adding two cups of ketchup to the traditional ingredients makes an incredible difference.

We only use the brand of ketchup that doesn’t have high fructose in it so it’s much healthier a choice. You can find it at most grocery stores – it’s by Heinz and it’s called Simply Heinz. It only has red ripe tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, salt, and a special blend of spices and flavorings in it so you are getting the exact flavors you need to spice this dish up.

Start off by browning the garlic and then add the beef and onions.

By adding the ketchup to the mix, you infuse the sauce with additional ingredients that really add a unique level of flavor.

This is where the magic happens. If you like a thicker sauce just add some more flour and water to the mix! It’s all up to you.

The beef is nice and tender. The sauce is thick and creamy without the cream – yummy deliciousness!
