Goulash over mashed potatoes was my birthday meal of choice when I was growing up. Now I make my mother's tangy recipe for my family, and they like it, too. —Jennifer Willingham, Kansas City, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Hot cooked noodles or mashed potatoes

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; crumble meat; drain. Add the water, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, sugar, salt, mustard and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour and cold water until smooth; stir into the meat mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with noodles or potatoes.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary.
