This One Pot Goulash is comfort food that will remind you of Grandma’s kitchen! A hearty and satisfying dish!
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. I have so 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!
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.
