Figuring out Grammy’s Goulash

I am not one of those cooks that can just toss some ingredients into a pot and come out with something fabulous. I need a recipe. Sadly, the women in my family tend to not write down things like measurements and directions. I can get the basics and then am left to try to figure out the right combination of things to get the taste right. I am close on a lot of them and each time I try them, I get a little better. Here’s my latest attempt at Grammy’s Goulash – I’m estimating it’s at least 5 servings but I’m still figuring that out…

The latest batch on the stove

Ingredients:
1 tsp olive oil
1.5 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion
1 lb macaroni
2 jars of Ragu with meat flavor
1 Tbsp oregano
1/2 Tbsp Basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Chop and fry onion with the olive oil. Cook slowly so they don’t burn.
  2. Add beef to onion, season with salt and pepper. Cook through and make sure meat in small pieces, not big chunks.
  3. Add hamburg mixture to cooked macaroni. Add sauce and spices.
  4. Warm through before serving.
