Mushroom Goulash--A Dinnertime Favorite

Simple to Make, Yet So Good

Source

Easy-to-make and so Tasty

Mushroom goulash uses few ingredients, yet it has an unbeatable flavor. Best of all, it can be made with minimal effort. It is every bit as good the next day when reheated and can be frozen for additional meals.

Mushroom soup makes a creamy-tasting gravy and the garlic adds so much flavor. When you combine these two, magic happens. It's not hard to see why this goulash is a long-standing favorite supper dish.

The flavors improve as this goulash sits, so it is even better when reheated for subsequent meals.

  • A perfect quick Friday night meal. Make lots of it and serve it over the weekend.
  • A great dish for entertaining--inexpensive and your guests will enjoy the flavor.
  • Make a large pan of goulash and take it to a potluck.

The Marriage of Mushroom and Garlic Creates Mealtime Magic

The creamy mushroom soup and the garlic make a fab combo.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 2-6 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 cans creamy mushroom soup
  • sliced mushrooms, to preference
  • 1 pkg. broad or egg noodles
  • shake garlic powder, to preference
  • pepper, to taste

You Start With Cooked Hamburger

Making Mushroom Goulash

Brown 1/2-1 lb. of ground beef. Add in (2-6 cloves) and continue cooking. Make sure the hamburger is well-cooked and slightly crispy.

Crushed Garlic

Add sliced mushrooms, if you have them on hand.

Add 2-3 cans of Campbell's mushroom soup. Do not add water and do not substitute for a cheaper brand of soup. The Campbell's mushroom soup gives goulash its creamy flavor.

Season with salt and pepper and adjust garlic to preference. Garlic is an important part of the flavor of this dish, so don't be afraid to use lots of it.

Keep warm on low heat. And stir occasionally. You want to make sure the soup isn't lumpy.

Cook Up One Package of Noodles

When noodles are cooked, drain them and return to pot.

Add the meat and mushroom soup mixture. Stir well to combine all ingredients.

Check for flavor and if needed, add some garlic powder.

When ready to serve, grate some fresh pepper over top.

Meatless Mushroom Goulash

If you are a vegetarian, and still would like to make goulash, simply substitute a pkg. or two of vegetable protein "Just Like Beef" mixture in place of the hamburger.

If you are vegan, also substitute the egg noodles for eggless noodles and instead of mushroom soup, make your own mushroom sauce to add to your goulash.

Goulash--Crowd Pleaser

I like to make lots of goulash and use a covered roasting pan because then it is easy to store and easy to reheat. It tastes so good, you will want to make lots of it.

Hi Compu-smart,

Thanks for your comments.

This dish is easy to make, even for someone who doesn't cook: just fry the meat, cook the noodles, and then stir in the soup--and presto!--you have a tasty dinner dish.
