Southern Goulash

What is Goulash you ask? In my definition, Goulash is a Southern meal of bliss that includes a mixture of pasta noodles, beans, meat, sauce and sometimes extra ingredients that Southerners may add at their discretion with a side of sweet cornbread. My mama used to always make Goulash and I could never get enough of it, so I thought I would share our version of Goulash with you. Get your taste buds ready! 



Goulash has very few and very simple ingredients. Feel free to mix it up and add a few of your own ingredients. I normally add a can of corn (drained) and the lady that babysat me when I was itty bitty added celery! 




What I love about making Goulash is that it is simple! 




I do not have a special cornbread recipe - yet- but I do know that if you use a cornbread mix, make sure to add a little bit of extra sugar. In the South, us Southerners like our cornbread like we like our tea-- nice and SWEET!



Serve up your Goulash, hot with a slice of buttered cornbread or serve it cold with a slice of buttered cornbread; either way it tastes great and will have you wanting more.

  2. A babysitter I had when I was itty bitty made goulash all the time and I didn't like it; hers was super bland, but your version sounds delicious! I've never heard of serving it with cornbread, but I bet it would be great. All the cheese on top would be a hit in my house, too. ;)

  6. I'm a northern gal and was curious about southern goulash. It seems that this recipe is very similar to Chili. What do you add to chili that makes it different than goulash? I love cornbread with chili or is it goulash.

  7. Thanks for the recipe! This will be on our dinner table this weekend! I would probably use finely chopped green peppers to replace the beans... and I have to find some good cornbread too! -Eileen Layno (a.k.a. Aiokona)
