Goulash Recipe

Goulash Recipe - The family of men LOVES this recipe...for me, what is not to love about something that is made from things I keep on hand at all times?

I made it the first time following the exact recipe and now I use ground round or sirloin ( if I get them on sale for all the meat and leave out the turkey, no draining necessary and the salt is kosher salt ( it does need quite a bit because of the pasta, but salt to your taste Also, I use Worcestershire and not soy sauce.
Its a great meal to feed to a hungry crowd. I like to serve it without the sour cream and with cheesy garlic bread and salad.

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 pound ground turkey
2 large onions, chopped
3 cups water
1 (29-ounce) can tomato sauce
2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
3 bay leaves
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon House Seasoning, recipe follows
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
2 cups dried elbow macaroni

In a Dutch oven, saute the ground beef and ground turkey over medium-high heat, until no pink remains. Break up meat while sauteing; spoon off any grease. Add the onions to the pot and saute until they are tender about 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water, along with the tomato sauce, tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, soy sauce, House Seasoning, and seasoned salt. Stir well. Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook for 20 to 25 minutes.

Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves and allow the mixture to sit about 30 minutes more before serving.
House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
