EVERYBODY is a Goulash Chef!
The basic recipe allows you to get creative!
The ground beef is browned, and then we go from there.

There are two approaches to this: cook the macaroni and other ingredients
separately, and then mix them together, or cook the ingredients with the uncooked
macaroni to make a thick goulash. Try our
Macaroni Goulash version to see the
difference. Either way only takes a few minutes.
