For this recipe, I don't use my pressure cooker, but you can. I even reheat this on camping trips.

8 people made this

IngredientsServes: 8

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5kg stewing steak, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 red peppers, sliced
  • 1kg tomatoes, cut into large pieces
  • 1 package white mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1/2L water, or as needed
  • 1 beef stock cube (optional)
  • salt and ground black pepper

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:3hr ›Ready in:3hr15min

  1. Heat the olive oil in a casserole over medium high heat, and cook and stir the beef until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove the beef and set aside. Cook and stir the onions in the same casserole until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the red peppers and tomatoes.
  2. Return the meat to the casserole, and stir in the mushrooms, paprika, oregano and cumin. Add enough water to just cover the beef, and stir in the stock cube to dissolve.
  3. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer until the beef is very tender, about 3 hours. The longer you simmer, the more tender the beef will become. Season with salt and pepper.

Prepare ahead

A good way to make this recipe ahead of time is to make it the night before, and reheat for the next day. It will have marinated for 24 hours in its sauce, which can only make it more tender.

Authentic Polish Goulash Recipe That Is Surprisingly Easy To Make!

Poles love eating meat! No wonder why- with so many cold months, they need to eat fatty food to keep warm in the winter. In this post, you will find the authentic Polish goulash recipe that is surprisingly easy to make.

It&rsquos actually my mom-in-law&rsquos recipe. She is the best cook that I know and I keep learning from her how to make traditional Polish food.

This is a Polish pork goulash recipe. Pork meat is the most commonly used when making stew in Poland, however, you can also make Polish beef, turkey, or chicken goulash.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It was easy to make and very tasty. I will make it again and again.

Typically I'm not a big fan of goulash, but this is just so simple and tasty, it won me over.

Made it yesterday and it turned out great, added one green pepper cut up like my mother put in her goulash.

I can't believe how easy this was for something that is so tasty and satisfying! I did add some diced onion and a tablespoon of smoked paprika, though, and sprinkled a light topping of sharp cheddar on the top. Is it still goulash? lol

Hi there! Yes, you can drain the beef in this recipe, however it is not required. Enjoy!

This is a really good. How big are the serving?

Hello, this recipe serves 4 people. :)

I would like to try this. I would like nutritional analysis

There are websites where you can go plug in the recipe info and it will give you what you're looking for. Or you might be more interested in Mr. Food's Diabetic recipe site, where info is usually provided.

This is similar to my recipe but I also add green peppers.

I have made this for years, as did my mom. Instead of beef broth, I use water, and the taste is still good. When the mixture boils I add 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables (mom used peas an carrots), and when it comes to a boil again, I add the macaroni. When the pasta is done, it's ready to eat. For a little more tomato flavor you can use a bigger can of tomatoes or a bit of ketchup! This is my stand-by quick and nutritious meal.

Just finished making and trying this dish as is. Was very good. Next time will add some chili powder and maybe mix in some cheddar cheese at the end. Sure beats hamburger helper. lol

So easy to make! Quick week night dinner. I made biscuits to go along with it. I will definitely make this again. YUM!

Have made this for years. I was just wondering why the broth?

Hey there, we use the broth in this recipe to cook the macaroni, because it goes in uncooked. Thanks for your question.

Super easy, fast, and yummy. I like more noodles than meat and making for two (with intentions of leftovers) so I only added one pound of ground beef (93% lean) and it was a perfect ratio for me. I may add some celery along with the onions next time.

I always rence the grease off of my hamburger with water. Because it's a healthier way to make one pot goulash. It tastes great this way too.

Hi my husband loves this goulash, it's so easy to make.

Can someone please tell me if you need to drain the grease after cooking the hamburger? I would like a opinion of someone that has drained the grease and one who has not if possible please and thank you

Yes, always drain grease after cooking hamburger unless there isn't any grease in bottom of pan. Nothing worse than greasy hotdish or sloppy joes. If you use 93% hamburger you may just use paper towel in pan to soak up the little bit of grease.

What are the nutritional facts for this?

Figure it out yourself. This is a recipe site, not a health sciences course.

It's the best meal I've made yet. It was soooo good. Thanks Mr. Food

In fact, plan to make it again tonight

Thank you - we're so happy you loved it! We'd love it if you could share a photo of your dish with us on Facebook so we can share your great experience with everyone. :)

We had several kids over for a playdate, and I made this for dinner. It was so good, and got thumbs up, from all the kids, even my picky one! I ended up adding about 2/3 of a small can, or about 4 oz. of tomato paste, a round or two of Worcestershire, and as it sat, it got too thick, for our taste, so I continued to add beef stock, as we went. When I warmed it, the next day, for lunch, it was thicker, still, so I added more. Ended up using nearly 32 oz. of broth, all told. It was delicious, and will be put into regular rotation! So easy and almost no cleanup! Thanks!

Made this tonight and doubled the recipe, was feeding 10 people. Everyone kept saying how good it was. Will be making this again and also trying more recipes on this site. Thumbs up.

My son and I made this tonight. so easy and sooo good!

how do you make 8 ounces of macaroni using measuring cups

Typically you would not measure the macaroni, you would weigh it. You can purchase macaroni in 8-ounce boxes or if you find a 16-ounce box, just use half. Thank you for your question!

I'm assuming you drain the ground beef after cooking it? Sorry, I'm new here and am used to recipes being very specific :)

Yes you can drain the grease, it will depend on the leanness of your ground meat.

Have been making this for over 40 years an been a family favorite all that time.

Thanks for sharing! We hope it continues to be a family favorite for many more years! :)

Made for dinner and it is delicious. The family (3 adults) loved it, huge servings and we had alot left over. Followed the recipe as written.

I made this for lunch and it is so good. followed the recipe as written.

Cook the pasta to al dente as directed on the package. Drain well and set aside.

Meanwhile, brown the ground beef in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Drain off any excess grease. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft.

Stir the cooked pasta into the beef mixture and reduce the heat to medium. Add the salt, pepper, tomato sauce, cheese, and chili powder. Stir well to combine.

Cover the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the ingredients are heated through.

Goulash Recipe

The recipe we have here is easy to make. It only takes a handful of ingredients including ground beef, hash browns with onions and peppers, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano and cheddar cheese.

Once you have cooked the meat, you combine the ingredients and put them in a slow cooker. After a few hours, the goulash will be ready to remove from the heat. Then, all you need to do is sprinkle with the cheese and serve.

Because goulash already has meat and veggies, it can be a meal in itself, but to make it more hearty, you can serve it over pasta or noodles. You also might want to put some bread on the side so you can sop up the sauces. You might also want to serve a salad on the side or as an appetizer.

Goulash soup can make a lot of people shudder, thinking it’s too complex for them to make for a weeknight dish. Fear not! That’s why I have this hamburger goulash recipe — so you can get all the punchy flavor of goulash with half the time.

Hamburger Goulash With Macaroni Ingredient Notes

Check that Fat: Since my hamburger goulash with elbow macaroni is a one-pot dish, I prefer using a lean ground beef — which means it has a higher meat-to-fat ratio. This ensures that my final dish isn’t swimming in beef fat.

Caraway Seeds: This funny little spice often gets overlooked, brushed off as a staple of the seasoning shelf. But take a closer look! Caraway seeds aren’t actually seeds at all — they’re a fruit. This anise-flavored spice has long been valued for its intestinal healing properties. So load up on this fruit!

Crushed? Diced? This hamburger goulash recipe uses crushed tomatoes, which helps ramp up the shortcut angle of this time-sensitive dish. Crushed tomatoes are halfway between diced and sauced, giving enough of a smooth sauce without foregoing all those yummy chunks entirely.

Storing Tips

I love making enough of my hamburger goulash recipe to feed a small army — so you’d better believe I’ve got storage tips down!

Can You Freeze This?

Absolutely! My hamburger goulash recipe not only cooks up fast, but it also stores like a dream.

If you’re planning on freezing large portions, I recommend you invest in a solid airtight container. That, combined with thoroughly cooling your soup, will guarantee nothing nasty develops, like freezer burn.

Because my hamburger goulash recipe has noodles cooked right in the sauce, it can’t camp out in your freezer as long as traditional goulash. The noodles will rapidly lose their structure if they stay too long, so only plan to keep your hamburger goulash in your freezer for two to three months.

Make-Ahead Tips

If you know you’re going to be crunched for time but you still want my hamburger goulash recipe on the table, you can always prep Step 1 and store it in the fridge for up to four days.

You can always take it to Step 2 as well, and similarly, store your premade goulash base in the fridge for up to four days!

How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?

My fully cooked hamburger goulash recipe makes mouthwatering fridge leftovers — but only for up to four days! After that, the noodles get unappetizingly mushy, and you also risk nasty bacteria growing. Better safe than sorry!

Craving Comfort Food? Make This Easy Keto Beef Goulash

Heat a large pot or dutch oven on the stove to medium heat. Add the ground beef, onion, celery, and garlic. Break up and brown the meat with the vegetables.

Add the remaining vegetables, marinara sauce, basil, seasonings, and broth. Stir everything well.

Cover pot and let simmer on the stove at medium/low heat for about 20 minutes, until veggies are tender. Stir every so often. Serve warm and enjoy!

Very Simple Goulash

This is a very simple Goulash recipe. Lots of tomato flavor! My husband and stepdaughter like things super simple. Spice for them is salt. Not very fun for me, but this is a good recipe and they will eat it.


  • 1 pound Hamburger
  • 1 whole Small Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 14 ounces, weight Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 ounces, weight Tomato Paste
  • 2 cans Water (use Tomato Paste Can To Measure)
  • ¼ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1-½ cup Large Elbow Macaroni


Dice onions and garlic and place in the skillet with the cooked meat. Cook on low for about 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste and 2 cans of water (use the tomato paste can to measure). Add salt, pepper and Italian seasoning (you can add more Italian seasoning).

Simmer for 5 minutes. Add dry macaroni and simmer for at least 10 minutes, covered. When pasta is cooked, it is ready to serve. This recipe is also great as leftovers (you can always double the recipe).

Weight is how they do the measurements on here for the tomatoes.

Mrs. Burks on 8.28.2013

Is weight diced tomatoes a brand of tomatoes?

SherryAnn48 on 4.22.2010

We had Very Simple Goulash night before last. It was easy and quite tasty. The men in the family kept sneaking back in the kitchen for more. Ok – so did I. Green beans and cornbread accompanied the Goulash. Yummy. Used the organic ground beef we buy from the local farmer who sells her beef, chicken, pork, eggs, milk and cheese at our local farmer’s market.

Plumpchef on 10.27.2009

Sounds exactly like my mom’s, but I could never remember the measurements – thanks.

This is the BEST goulash recipe!! I doubled it using 2 lbs. of lean ground meat, a whole package of elbow macaroni and 4 cups of water. I also added 1 can of whole kernel corn and a packet of McCormick Thick & Zesty spaghetti seasoning. After it was done I topped it with a shredded mozzarella/parmesan blend and a spoonful of sour cream…YUMMY.

Kaycalvary on 8.31.2011

I made this for dinner last night. It was so good. I used some of my canned tomatoes which made it even more yummy. The only issue I had was that some of the pasta wasnt cooked all the way through. My husband thought it needed more pasta too. So next time I may cook the pasta separately to al dente and then add it to the pot. I will definitely be making this again!! Thanks!

Cmboge00 on 1.4.2011

I made this recipe last night for my 3 very picky boys and they all loved it. I am not by any means a good cook, but this was so easy to make. I did change it just a little, mostly because I didn’t read the directions completely before beginning, I boiled the macaroni separately. Otherwise I followed the directions, except I covered my final dish with cheese and baked until the cheese melted. I would highly recommend this dish for anyone looking for a simple yet tasty dinner. I have never made goulash before, mostly because I don’t like my mother’s so therefore thought I didn’t like goulash, but this has made a goulash lover out of me.
Thank you.

What Can I Serve With Goulash?

Ohhhhhh. So many options here. But when it comes to savory dishes like this, I always love a side of garlic bread to dip in the sauce. Probably my favorite part. Cornbread also works well. And of a course, a salad also pairs perfectly.

If you&rsquore looking to squeeze in some veggies, steamed carrots, broccoli, asparagus, or even mushrooms would be great with this meal.

But if you&rsquore like me, this goulash with some bread and butter is one of my favorite comfort meals. Especially in the winter. Perfect for football games, get-together&rsquos, and potlucks.

Let me know in the comments if you&rsquove made this before. I&rsquod also love to hear any tasty variations you&rsquove come up with 🙂
