I don't particularly enjoy cooking, but I do enjoy eating. And being a family history buff, I've talked Grandma Carson into showing me how to make a few of her other delicious recipes: the family culinary tradition must be preserved. [In other words, I must not go hungry!]
Grandma is always very gracious, and here is her latest wonderful recipe:
1 lb. box Campanelle pasta
1 lb. ground beef
20 oz. tomato juice
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup and 1 tablespoon milk
grated cheddar cheese
Prepare pasta as directed on box: boil water (seasoned with garlic salt), then cook noodles till soft (maybe 15 minutes). Drain. Brown beef in a frying pan; add to pasta.
Pour in the tomato juice. Whisk flour and milk in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to goulash. Then stir in salsa to taste. (How much you use depends how spicy you want the goulash and how strong your salsa is. Last time I made this, I used almost a whole jar of medium salsa.) Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Turn stove down to low and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of goulash. Simmer with a lid on till cheese is melted. Serve warm.
I like my goulash best with plenty of sour cream.
Have you ever eaten goulash?
