This. 👆 This is what fall is all about.
All things comfy, cozy, and being surrounded by amazing food, friends, and family.
American Goulash is such an amazing and humble meal – it is ridiculously full of flavor and is exactly the kind of meal I want to share with my family as the weather gets cooler.
A quick, crazy easy, completely delicious, stick to your ribs, comforting meal that’s ready and on the table in under 30 minutes?
Fall. Perfection. 🍂
This American Goulash transports me back to my childhood. Growing up in the midwest, especially during the cooler months, comfort food was always found on our table.
I can’t remember if my mom actually made goulash – if she did I’m sure I didn’t eat it, because the word “goulash” would have totally freaked me out – but she did make chicken and biscuits, stuffed peppers, all the casseroles… pretty much anything that would be described as classic midwest comfort food.
When Red Gold Tomatoes asked us to create a recipe to encourage families to share a family meal together to help crush hunger, I knew I needed to go back to my roots and create a humble, classic midwestern dish that you would’ve found on my family table growing up.
You guys. Trevor and I went absolutely nuts over this American Goulash. I mean, you just can’t go wrong with a one pot wonder <– heck yes! – that’s loaded with ground beef, veggies – including Red Gold Garlic & Olive Oil Petite Diced Tomatoes, loads of spices, and macaroni pasta. Using the Red Gold diced tomatoes in this midwestern dish was a natural fit as all their tomatoes are sustainably grown on Midwest family farms.
We shared this meal with friends and family and everyone l.o.v.e.d. it. and I encourage YOU to do the same, so we can help CRUSH hunger together.
By simply purchasing any Red Gold, Redpack, or Tuttorosso tomato product in October, Red Gold will donate one meal to support families in need.
