Old-fashioned goulash is the comfort food you need this winter

Old fashioned goulash

If you’re eager to spend a little less time in the kitchen during the holidays or on a weeknight, you’re in luck. We have a recipe for goulash we think you’ll love. This meal is not only easy to make, but it’s delicious and sure to please your entire family.

Old-fashioned goulash is as simple as tossing ingredients into a pot and letting the flavors mingle until everything’s all warm, bubbly and ready to be divided into bowls. It’s the perfect meal to eat on the couch, tired feet propped up, Netflix cued up and comfy PJs on.

This recipe from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish will prove just how easy it is to make this delicious meal. It calls for ingredients like ground beef, onions, garlic, crushed tomatoes, frozen peas and macaroni noodles. But really, any veggies or meat you’ve got in your pantry or freezer will do. Ground turkey, ground beef or canned chicken would all also work well in this recipe, so feel free to make do with whatever items you’ve got on hand. No trip to the grocery store necessary!

And not only can you be flexible with the ingredients, but you can also mix this up in just one pot. So cleaning up will be a breeze, too! See why this is the ultimate in comfort food?

You can also experiment a bit with spices and toppings. This version from My Incredible Recipes calls for adobo seasoning and finishes the dish off with two different types of cheese.

Spend With Pennies also has a recipe for a Hungarian-inspired version of the dish that calls for beef, paprika, potatoes and carrots for a hearty take on this stew.

There’s a lot of room for customization with a meal like this, so you can really make it specific to your tastes and preferences. And if you do it right, making this meal may just become a new family tradition.
