Ruined my husband's dinner. He couldn't even finish his plate. Way too salty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's a very good, simple, inexpensive meal to make and kid friendly. I used reduced sodium soy sauce and cut back on the amount of salt I used. I have been making this for several years now, and it's always a hit. Serve it with some cheese of your choice, sour cream, and piping hot bread with butter (then go work out). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ruined my dinner tonight! Way to salty! I questioned the amount of salt and only put in the tablespoon of house seasoning and soy sauce and not the season salt. Still too salty. Typo on the salt? Will make again with no salt! item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of the best recipes I keep on hand. Super easy and great flavors! Thank you!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this tonight for the first time and it came out excellent, I did cut back a little bit on some of the salts after reading reviews, Next time going to use worcestershire sauce and can't wait ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the 2nd time I've made this, all I've got to say about how good it is, is that this time, I'm hoping that some of it makes it to the freezer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First - way too much sodium - and yes I am talking about the tablespoon of "house mix", not a cup (that is silly). I mean wow- a whole tbs of seasoned salt plus another tbs of mostly salt "house mix" plus 3 tbs of soy sauce - I'm a salt guy but my blood pressure goes up just reading this recipe. Still - 5 stars because I love it and was a hit with the kids (the wife not so much but she will come around). Reminds me of what we call "American Chop Suey" in New England - meat spaghetti sauce over elbow macaroni but this is better - less tomato more meat. I like the traditional real goulash as others have noted and this is nothing like it - but so what - it tastes good so get over it already. I kept the 3 tbs of soy sauce, reduced the seasoned salt to a tsp and added a tsp each of pepper and garlic power rather than the house mix. I added the dollop of sour cream (in the picture) and liked it even better but the rest of the family went sans sour cream but added some grated Parmesan. item not reviewed by moderator and published
the house seasoning recipe is for you to make and store for later use. the goulash recipe only calls for 1 tablespoon of the house seasoning. lol. shame on you for adding 1 whole cup of salt to any recipe. i have made this goulash several times at it is a wonderful one pot meal. @chewie10 item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to agree with PhillyBill post and say that there is an outragous amount of salt in this recipe. If you don't have tastebuds this recipe is for you however if you would like a more refine flavor and save yourself a heartattack or stroke, try using way less salt, add more flavor by adding beef broth (as someone indicated in an earlier post instead of water. I will be making this tonight again but with the suggestions I have gotten from the posts here. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It is delicious and super easy to make. I modified the recipe a tad by only using ground turkey and using 1 teaspoon of salt rather than tablespoon. This has become a regular in my dinner rotation. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yeah I made this recipe a few years back - it's very confusing the way it's worded. You don't put in the whole amount of House Seasoning, for some reason you make a cup and a half of it and then put in only a tablespoon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
