A friend shared this one-pot cheesy beef goulash recipe that is only 7 points per serving on the Weight Watchers plan. We need one-skillet meals that WARM us up in the winter after working outside on the farm. This is a great new recipe to add to the meal rotation!
One-Pot Beef Goulash
We like this meal because it is filling, but it is also forgiving. The recipe could be easily doubled to make a large meal or plenty of leftovers. It is easily reheated and tastes great if extra tomato juice is added to keep it moist.
While the recipe is cheesy to start with extra cheese can always be added after reheating to make the beef goulash have more flavor.
We always have ground beef, cheese and elbow macaroni on hand, but we did have to pick up the stewed tomatoes, tomato juice, green chilis and pinto beans.
Thanks to my friend Heather aka the Food Hussy for sharing this delicious recipe!
Food Comes From Farms
We live and work on a farm. We’re proud to raise our own ground beef and we know that the corn and soybeans that we raise help feed other animals that make milk for the cheese. The food chain is full-circle. When you buy food in the United States there’s a good chance you are supporting farm families in the United States.
These are the kind of meals my hard-working farmer really enjoys on a cool day when he’s been working hard!
Before cell phones I remember my dad working late out and about on the farm. My mom never knew when to expect him, but one thing was for certain, he was going to be hungry when he got home. On school nights I remember her spending hours making a warm meal for my brother and I, but taking extra care to keep my dad’s food warm, without overcooking it or drying it out. This is the perfect recipe to keep warm or re-heat if needed.
Here are a couple of other easy meat and noodle meals that my family enjoys, Easy Mexican Casserole, Pasta Shell Tacos and Hamburger and Noodle Casserole. We hope you enjoy these delicious meals and casseroles as much as we do!
