One Pot Goulash
When I think of Fall, I think of comfort food. How about you?! I am often reminded of my gramma’s kitchen and all the wonderful things she made with love. I loved the food that came out of her kitchen. The many great memories – from the wonderful smells of the food, to watching the way my gramma cooked without measuring, to tasting dishes that were always seasoned to perfection … and many times, getting chased out of the kitchen because it became our playground while she was cooking! 😉 I can only hope that one of these days, my own children and grandchildren will look at me and my kitchen with those same fond memories. Do you have a favorite childhood food? One of my favorites would definitely be goulash!
Although I’m sure this is different from Gramma’s version, it’s still so comforting and delicious! My family really enjoys this One Pot Goulash – and I love that it’s an easy, one pot meal! That means less dishes to clean later. What cook doesn’t love that? Plus, this recipe makes a lot! It’ll almost feed an army of hungry people!
We usually enjoy this dish with a side salad and garlic bread! I hope your family enjoys this One Pot Goulash as much as mine!
Oh, and one more thing before we get to the recipe … this One Pot Goulash makes an awesome Halloween dinner! Plus, it’s kinda fun to call it “ghoul-ash” … I’m just saying.
