Goulash is one of those meals that I never thought to make myself but always enjoyed whenever someone else made it. Finally, I decided to make it myself and am so glad that I did. It may not be fancy, but sometimes you just want some good old-fashioned comfort food. This is a very easy meal that makes my whole family happy.


  • 1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 (15 oz) can of tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can of diced tomatoes
  • 1½ tbsp Tamari (or regular) soy sauce
  • 1½ tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp Lawry’s seasoned salt, or to taste
  • 1½ cups uncooked elbow macaroni



  1. In a large Dutch oven, cook ground beef over medium-high heat until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain fat, then stir in the onion, pepper and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent
