My Version of Goulash

What is Goulash?  
I looked it up and here is the definition: soup or stew of meat and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices.  So I guess I really can call this Goulash, right?!  Sounds legit to me!  =)

There are so many different versions of it but this is mine and it was GOOD!  I'm talking, not one complaint from my 7, 5, or 3 year old good...just silence and slurping as they ate!  Now, that's saying something!  =)

I like to cook with what I have at home and I've been known for just throwing a bunch of things in a pot and hoping it tastes good.  Sometimes it's downright awful but sometimes it's a keeper like this soup!  When a meal is easy, healthy, delicious AND all 5 members of my family love it...JACKPOT!!  

Here's my recipe and if you have a favorite Goulash Recipe I'd love to hear about it in the comments!  


  • 2 pounds of lean meat (I use venison/beef because our freezer is full of lean meat from my husbands deer but you should use lean beef or you could try lean ground turkey).
  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 1 sweet onion
  • Carrots (I used baby carrots and just kept slicing until desired amount!)
  • 6 red potatoes (again you can add as many or as little as you like)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 can of corn
  • water
  • 4 Beef Bouillon cubes
  • salt to taste
  • pepper
  • shredded cheddar cheese to garnish with
  • Peel your potatoes and then dice/chop your celery, onion, carrots and potatoes.
  • Press your garlic if it's not already minced.
  • Cook your meat, garlic and onion in a pot until it is brown
  • Add all your vegetables to the pot
  • Add your can of corn, undrained
  • Pour in enough cups of water to rise slightly above all the ingredients
  • Bring it to a boil and then add your cubes, salt, and pepper
  • Steam/Boil in covered pot until all vegetables are soft then let simmer on low.  Make sure you watch it while it's boiling so it doesn't boil over!
  • Dish into bowls and garnish with cheese!
I'm already hungry again! =)
