Saute beef, 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and 2 onions in large frying pan. Drain excess fat. Lots of onions makes this good.
Meanwhile, in another pan cook macaroni in boiling, salted water until tender (approximately 5 minutes for the smaller sized macaroni). Set aside until almost ready to serve.
When beef and onions are finished cooking, add the canned crushed tomatoes and approximately 1/2 cup water. Add garlic salt, pepper, chili powder and mix well.
Simmer for about 20 minutes; then add cooked macaroni noodles and mix well when ready to serve. If you add the macaroni noodles too soon, they may over cook and get mushy.
This is one of my husbands favorite recipes from his mother when he was growing up -- it''s still a favorite today.

JeweledSoulWe love this recipe! Picky daughter always says "make a double batch mom!1y ago
shaylashieraHubby knows it as American chop suey, but no matter the name you use, goulash is a favorite comfort food for all. Different every time I make it based on what fresh veggies I have on hand, the onion, ground meat, noodles and tomato sauce are the base staples that make this dish what it is. Love it!!1y ago
MinnaBVery good. Will definitely make this dish again. Pssst... it was even better on day 2.2y ago
AnnetteMKI've been making goulash as far back as I can remember, as a young girl with my mom! I continue making it for my family quite a bit during the autumn and cold winter months in michigan! I use petite tomatoes, minced garlic, oregano, canned mushrooms (drained), and tomato paste. Sometimes I will also use inexpensive off-brand spaghetti sauce if I feel like being lazy. Either way, a good recipe, it's quick, and easy! And the family always enjoys it!2y ago
Melissa1980Kids loved it! It was a little too bland for me. Next time I'm going to try oregano and diced tomatoes instead of crushed!2y ago
pingkThis is an awesome dish. I loved it.Thanks for sharing.2y ago
bizbI made this today, for the 2nd time. (Last time was 7 months ago.) It turned out MUCH tastier because I changed several ingredients. I'm sharing my revised recipe here on BigOven (search for Ida's Depression Goulash).3y ago
