I love goulash! It is such a versatile and easy dish to make. My other name for it is, “throw stuff in a pot” meal. This is such a quick and easy dinner idea. One night I was doing just that – throwing things in a pot and seeing how it tasted. And I totally didn’t write down the measurements, so please forgive me. If you are going to follow this recipe, be flexible and change the amounts to make it taste how you want.
So why didn’t I put bacon in my goulash? Cause everything tastes better with bacon. And you know what? This would have. But I didn’t have bacon on hand, so this will be a bacon-less recipe.
1/2 cup Honey
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 lb Ground Beef
1 cup chopped Onions
2 T chopped Garlic
1/8 cup White Wine Vinegar
1 T Paprika
2 cans chopped tomatoes

1/2 box whole wheat rotini pasta

2. Boil the noodles, drain, return to pot
3. Add ground beef mixture to noodles.
4. Warm on medium low with the rest of the ingredients – honey, balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, tomato paste, beans and tobasco sauce.
5. Add cheese on top right before you eat!
