Delicious and super easy, basically one dish. I halved the recipe and still had plenty for 4. I reduced the salt and house seasoning by 50%. I added half a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce and a pinch of cayenne.  Lastly I added one bouillon cube to the water. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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
We really liked this a lot! It reminded my husband and me of chili mac. Very tasty! I have been trying to make my own goulash for the past years but it was so bland. This was great. Personally, the only thing I would do is lessen the Italian seasoning or try a different brand it was just a little too much but that was it! Will definitely be making this a lot! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent!! Followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect! I think the people that mentioned salt issues misread the recipe. It was great, and everyone loved it! It does serve way more than 6 people, though! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super easy to make and is very good. Although it made more than 6 servings for us but that's not a bad thing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was very good. I cut the recipe and half. Used tomato juice instead of water and added brown sugar. Will make this regularly item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good and will make again. I used italian sausage in place of the ground turkey. Made the sauce a day in advance to refrigerate overnight. The only change I will make next time is to cook the macaroni al dente by itself not cooked in the sauce. Which worked just fine and easier but prefer a firmer pasta. And lastly, shared some with a neighbor, who claimed she does not like any form of canned tomatoes. She raved about it and asked if I could make a batch for her to serve to out of town guests soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it . Will make again...But folks you'd make the house spice recipe in a quart jar not a cup of salt in in the recipe. Just. A pinch or 2 is plenty.....Funny reading the posts that think its too salty... item not reviewed by moderator and published

Just made this for 2 very picky 5 yr olds. My daughter loved it! But the real test was my niece (who always has a comment about my cooking, she LOVED IT! I used 1lb ground beef & 1lb ground turkey, reduced the water (2 cups, seasoning and bay leaves (2 leaves to match the amount of meat and added shredded sharp cheese when I added the noodles (I'm cooking for 5 yr olds, so I had to add cheese. I layered the pot with more shredded cheddar during the 30 min wait stage. Everything else I followed to the T. The MY GIRLS LOVED IT, AND I HAVE PLENTY OF LEFT OVERS! For those who didn't like the bay leaves, I liked them in this dish, but that may be my southern upbringing talking. While writing this my daughter just asked for "MORE" gotta go fix another plate! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just so everyone is aware: I have the Deen Bros. cookbook "Y'all Come Eat" and it contains Bobby's Goulash recipe. The recipe in the book uses some teaspoon measurements where this posted recipe uses Tbs...when all else fails, trust your judgement. The recipe from the book turns out quite nicely. (I created an account just to give the heads-up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was just OK for me. I used just ground turkey, all low sodium products and used very little seasoning salt to cut down on the massive sodium count. I will make this again but I will omit the bay leaf next time, for me it just didn't taste right in this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good but way too much salt. We omitted the soy sauce and halved the salt and it was still too much. Next time think we we will stick to either just the soy sauce or just the house season. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe although extremely familiar to the recipe my mom use to make still lacks something. and a good pinch of brown sugar rounds out the flavor. I don't know how anyone could eat this as the recipe calls for. Once something is over salted, there is no going back. Glad I omitted season salt and reduce Paula's seasoning mix. I love the food network but some of the recipes I have encountered, the information given to us in the recipe is not as shown on TV and I have had toss out several costly meals.

I have made this recipe many times, I have adjusted it to fit our taste, and use 1 lb of italian sausage with 1 lb of ground beef instead of the 2 lbs beef and 1 lb turkey. We call it Beefaroni, which is more fitting. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this dish. I have made it often, and will continue to do so. I follow the recipe exactly. I have brought this to covered dish gatherings, and am always asked for the recipe. Oh, and it freezes great. Thank you Paula and Bobby. This is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good. Added two chicken bullion cubes, added maybe a cup more water. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the best goulash we have ever made! The only thing we changed was we used 2 c of beef broth,1 c of water. instead of 3 c of water. It taste even better the next day. Great recipe Paula thank you, we will be using this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this. My kitchen smells so good. Cooking sauce a little longer before adding pasta is a good idea. Yummy Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this for dinner and we loved it. I did add bell pepper because I love it and it gave it just a little more flavor. This was simple to make and we will enjoy this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe, is easy, classic, wholesome, comforting and full of flavor. It is also quickly adaptable to suit your tastes and that alone is terrific. I let simmer at least an hour and a half before adding pasta of choice. This is such a winner! No wonder it is Bobby's favorite. It is a favorite here, as well, time and time again without fail - the flavor and the comfort is found right in this pot! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this twice and really like it - I like ALL of Paula's recipes! I used only ground turkey, no beef. First time I used the diced tomatoes but second time I did not have any and used a can of whole tomatoes which I gently blended. I really liked the texture of the goulash with the blended whole tomatoes and will continue to use them. These were the only changes I made and it came out great! Getting ready to make a large pot for the Super Bowl and will hopefully have some leftovers for the week. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I christened my new Dutch Oven with this recipe. I used quinoa elbow macaroni with no problem. I am going to chop up a jalapeno the next time I make it. This will be a dish i revisit often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super good and I would make it again. Used only half the salt and salt seasoning and used the jumbo elbow macaroni @ 2-1/2 cups because my grandson likes pasta. You could certainly jazz it up with green, red and/or yellow peppers but not necessary. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Though I've relied on many of Food Net's recipes in the past, this is the first one that I actually felt compelled to write a review on (I literally created an account for this moment people!! lol. Not only is this dish very, very easy to make.. it's absolutely delicious!! I agree with the previous posts that it's a bit on the salty side but it definitely didn't keep me and my boyfriend from devouring it anyhow. Keep in mind, though, that suggested serving size for this recipe is completely off. Judging by the instructions above alone, I anticipated having about one more meal's worth of food remaining for myself and my boyfriend and we hardly put a dent in the original dish. You could without a doubt get 10-12 servings out of this one recipe! But it's sooo good : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw Paul making this on an episode I was watching when I was sick with mono of all things. I hadn't eaten much in a week, and I saw this and thought, "That really looks good!" I had my partner make it for me when he got home, and lo and behold, it was wonderful! Thanks, Paula...I credit this dish for getting me over the hump and on the road to recovery. Well, maybe not, but it was the only thing that tasted good to me then, and I still love it today!! Some thing the Italian seasoning is too strong, but I love the little "kick" it gives the dish. You'll never settle for a boring goulash again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is not the kind of recipe that u follow exacty. I give it 10 stars i think its GREAT! Do with it what u want. For those pepole that criticise sounds like they all still make.. yum thnks ms Paula Dean i love ur kinda food! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love PD's recipes. I make it for taste and good old-fashioned-the-way-mom-used-to-make-it feel. The taste of comfort. I definitely do not make her recipes with controlling my calorie, salt, or any other healthy type intake in mind. But, if you are looking for a taste of comfort that warms you to your bones when its cold outside. This dish meets those needs and exceeds it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of my favorites!! I make this often. I do use a little less salt and I use small ziti instead of elbow noodles. There is rarely any leftovers, my MIL even said this was good and she never compliments my cooking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added 1/2 cup of brown sugar to this recipe. That made it absolutely delish! Took it to a potluck, not much left to bring home. Might try it with sausage and green peppers next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is delicious! (I had commented on other reviewers' propensity to preach about the evils of salt and consequently give this dish a low rating without tasting it, but apparently that is a No-No on this board! Wonder if they'll publish this one! I ADDED a little garlic salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious every time I make it and it's great if you want food for several days. It's a little time consuming but most of the time is just letting the food cook and simmer. I almost completely followed the recipe but never used soy sauce. Also instead of adding Italian seasoning, house seasoning AND seasoned salt I was just generous with Lawry's seasoning. Yum!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty using the Italian seasoning, but the serving size is off. Following this recipe I ended up with about 12 servings. It appears to freeze well and stay just as tasty. I, too, modified the salt and in fact did not add any except to season the meat early on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is so loaded with sodium-salt that after having some I decided better safe then sorry and put down the garbage disposal. However I will make it again ,but with far less salt,Also I'll use Low Sodium Soy Sauce. 1 Star because of the sodium content.f item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been eating Goulash all my life, but this recipe is excellent. Full of flavor, a real comfort food! Thanks Bobby! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe with some big modifications. As printed I could only give it 3 stars because of the WHOPPING amount of sodium per serving- it was far too salty for my family. I left out the season salt, table salt, & soy sauce and replaced them with salt free herbs. I also used no-salt-added tomato products along with extra garlic powder and pepper in place of some of the salt in Paula's house seasoning. It still tasted great! I had table & fine sea salt available for anyone who liked saltier foods & hot sauce for some kick. Everyone loved it. Will be making it again this way since it won't send my husband's BP into the atmosphere. FYI- if you prefer a more al-dente pasta skip the 30 min rst time as the pasta gets pretty gummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
4 stars as it is. 5 stars if you cut the seasoned salt & italian seasoning down to about a 1/3 of what it calls for, otherwise it's way too salty & herby. Also use a little more pasta than it calls for. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved this goulash recipe and it tasted great with cornbread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I love this recipe. I didn't follow the house seasoning recipe, (I just added the same ingredients as I saw fit so I can't say if there was too much salt or not. I found the Italian seasoning wasn't overpowering but I might tone it down a pinch. I don't add as much meat and put about 2.5 cups of macaroni. I also put the diced tomato's through the blender for a few pulses because we don't like the chunks. One of these days I'm going to spice it up with some ideas posted by others here. Overall, a great meal that is easy and fairly quick! Happy Eating. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family doesn't like goulash so when I saw this kind of italian version I decided to give it a try. They love it..the only thing i changed was instead of putting in italian seasoning. I used Del Monte Basil, garlic and oregano tomatoes..Just the right amount of seasoning.. Served with garlic butter texas toast, it is wonderful item not reviewed by moderator and published
My Hubby loves this recipe. Instead of using macaroni noodles, I use Wacky Mac Veggie Spirals. My Hubby doesn't even notice that it's actually vegetable pasta. If you find the recipe to be salty, place a small whole raw peeled white potato in it during the 30 minute setting stage. Stir periodically during the 30 minutes. The white potato should draw out some of the salt. Throw out the potato prior to serving. I also noticed that this recipe says "seasoned salt." The recipe on Paula Deen's web site says "Paula Deen Season Salt;" thus, this may make a difference in the salt level. I actually make sure every ingredient in the Paula Deen Season Salt and the Paula Deen House Seasoning is in my dish (i.e., I make my own of both of these, and I season to taste. Instead of using "diced tomatoes," I use Hunts Rosemary & Oregano Diced Tomatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't find it as salty as most people seem to. In my opinion though there was way too much Italian seasoning. It overwhelmed the whole dish and that was all you could taste. It's a great base recipe though. I'll definitely make again and just cut way back on the Italian seasoning. I also only cooked it for about five minutes after adding the pasta and then let it finish cooking after turning off the heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My friend brought this to camp one day.... It was soooo delicious. I asked for the recipe and she directed me here. Hers was a little spicier than the ingredients listed here and she said she only had a can of fire roasted tomatoes and a can of diced tomatoes with chilis in her cupboard so she used them instead of plain diced tomatoes. I NEVER make it any other way. And my house full of picky eaters BEG for this!!!! (Also, I don't drain off ALL the fat.... : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really tasty. Will make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am married to one of the pickiest eaters around- no peppers and no chunks of tomatoes. So to spice this up a notch I substituted a 15 oz. jar of Mild Salsa for one of the cans of diced tomatoes. I put the remaining can of diced tomatoes and the salsa in the blender to eliminated any evidence of peppers/tomatoes. He asked for a second serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight and it was GREAT! I also added green pepper and brown suger and substituted wort sauce for soy sauce. I will definately be making it again, real soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I am going to make this. Can this also be done in the Crockpot? Looks Delish!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe 3 times now. The first time was entirely too salty. I had made it for my husband and dad, & they too commented on the salt content. The next time I cut both the season and house salt in about half. You have to keep in mind that salt comes from the soy sauce too. Also, I sauted some fresh mushrooms in w/ the onions. Lastly, I know this sounds weird, but I watched my aunt do it when she would make her goulash, I added a small palm full of brown sugar. It sorta just blends the flavors better I think. Makes it slightly less...spaghetti like. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my. Sooooooo delicious! 1. make it EXACTLY as written - unless you want chewier pasta then cook separately and add in. 2. it is NOT goulash from Hungary/Austria/Germany. It is NOT supposed to be - it is just a name for a dish with everything thrown in. 3. This is not meant as a slam - I have a 15 year old German Shepherd who has become very picky and eats little. She cleaned out her bowl when I added it to her kibble. 4. EVERYONE in my house loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
WEE DOGGIE that's some good goulash!!! Like another person said it smelled good while cooking so I couldn't wait to taste it. My husband does most of the cooking, but this may just move me more into the rotation!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
PHENOMENAL...I could not get enough to eat! The smell while cooking was amazing too! I only used 2 lbs hamburger, lighted up on my water & only did 2 cups, did a little more than 2 cups on the elbow noodles, a little less seasoning salt. I didn't cook for the whole 20 minutes once the elbow noodles were added b/c I was afraid they would be too soft. This was amazing & I had neighbors over for dinner & we all were in a food coma from eating so much! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The combination of all the herbs and spices just blended together perfectly. The recipe turned out to yield rather large results so make sure you're cooking it for a group of people, I ended up giving some to my mother and father in law, both of them loved it as well. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a different spin on traditional Goulash and as if the fantastic taste wasn't enough to make you want to try it, preparation and cooking is simple as can be. Thank you Paula for a fantastic recipe that will stay in my recipe box for years to come. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of my regular recipes because we love it. I did tweak it a bit by adding a beef bouillon cube and a small can of tomato paste. I also use penne pasta (and I use more than 2 cups because the elbow pasta seemed to get a little over cooked. We are having this tonight : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to say, I'm really impressed. I've been recently following a weekly menu plan for the first time. I thought it would be difficult and that I'd quickly lose interest. I've been using this website almost exclusively and every recipe has been not only fantastic, but practically fool proof! This recipe has been no different, and it's has been so easy! I put my own spin on this and again, you can't mess this one up. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a dish which has never disappointed. I tweaked it a little to suit my family's taste, but the flavor combination is right on. I also added a little sugar to take out a little of the tomato zing. It is a wonderful recipe for company as well, no one will be disappointed! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When i tried this recipe my dad LOVED it. He said it was hearty and had great flavors. Even though it took awhile when i tried it, it wasn't difficult. I will be making this recipe again item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved this dish. Easy to make and hearty enough to keep my 5 boys full for more than 1/2 hour. I truly believe that the reviews that are critical of the salt content have just made a mistake of adding the whole house seasoning recipe rather than just the tablespoon called for. Really folks, who would ever add a cup of salt to anything? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm confused. I found this recipe on Paula's newsletter that I received by e-mail and the recipe only calls for 2 pounds of lean beef. Where is the turkey coming from (which by the way I find the idea of adding to this dish not appetizing). Has anyone made this without the turkey? item not reviewed by moderator and published
was great and easy to make somting the kids can even help make item not reviewed by moderator and published
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 item not reviewed by moderator and published

I did some tweaking on this recipe based on other reviews & my family went nuts for it. Here's what I did: reduced water to 2C & added 1 C of red wine; added 1/2 C of ketchup (my mom always did that); upped the macaroni to 3 C & doubled the garlic to 6 cloves. My hubbie is on a lower sodium diet due to blood pressure, so here's the salt related changes reduced soy sauce to 2 T & used low sodium version; left out the House seasoning altogether (the extra garlic covered the garlic powder in the house seasoning). This recipe is going into my high rotation list. I also love how much it makes because day 2 is even better than day 1! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have always loved goulash and have had many different kinds but this is the BEST goulash I have ever made or had.Who would ever think of soy sauce ?The spices ?

I have read this recipe a dozen times--WHAT sour cream? item not reviewed by moderator and published
After making the same very good goulash recipe for years I decided to try this. Upon tasting, my first thought was this dish doesn't know what it wants to be - Hungarian, Italian, or Asian. I did not like the Italian seasoning or the soy sauce - used only 1 TBS. For me, the best part of goulash is the tomato flavor but all the other ingredients overwhelmed the tomatoes in this recipe. I cut the salt in half and simmered the noodles 10" as some suggested. I suggest only 5" because the noodles came out too soft for my liking which is al dente. It's disappointing when a cook as experienced as Paula would suggest simmering noodles for 20". The directions for al dente is 7-8". Plus the noodles continue to cook long after. And three cups of noodles is just right for the amount of meat rather than two cups. I'll stick to my own way of making goulash, it's far better than this recipe. Sorry Paula. But thank you for the idea of cooking the noodles with the other ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seldom look at recipes rated four stars, but I had watched the video with Paula and her son Bobby. When I looked at the ratings I was surprised some people rated this without ever having prepared it. I followed the recommendation of one reviewer and added shredded carrots, as well as the one cup of red wine. Wow, this was delicious. Perfect comfort food. This is a keeper. High five Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I put in 3 cups of maccaroni, and an additional cup of wine. Instead of 3 cups of water, I put in 1 cup of wine and 2 cups of water. I tend to improvise when I cook and that is just what I did. I also added more garlice, onions, and made a sofrito first of celery onions and grated carrots, then I added 4 cloves of garlic (rough chop) and 10 ounces of sliced fresh mushrooms. THEN I browned the meat (very lean). I followed all other directions except for the 3 cups of macaroni (instead of 2) and the additional red wine. I also used some Ragu instead of sauce because I didn't have sauce. And stewed tomatoes instead of diced. This is a very forgiving recipe. I added some srichacha sauce to give it a kick. Excellent. I put the leftovers into single serve containers to freeze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was to salty! I would half the amount of seasoning salt and maybe only do 2 tbsp. of soy. Also after adding the noodles I would cut the time in half. The noodles get to soggy. It's the first recipe out of dozens of paula's I had to tweak. :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm making it now, it smells soo good. As I was stirring it I tried it and told my husband to try it. He can't wait until it's done.

I love goulash. This is the best tasting I have ever had! Thanks Bobby for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this last night. Omitted the seasoned salt and bay leaves, and used 5 cloves of garlic. DELISH! My boys could stop eating it. It makes way more than 6 servings! 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
