How to make Simple Homemade Goulash

This is a simple and delicious, perfect for any season, made with meat, tomato and your favorite pasta stew. Loaded with flavor! you can freeze and use in the week.

Makes about 8-10 servings.


  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 lb stewing beef (I used boneless blade roast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 onions, peeled and diced
  • a few garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 2 tbs Italian seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced or whole plum tomatoes
  • 4 cups (1 L) beef stock (use low-sodium stock, if using store bought)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups your favorite pasta (uncooked)


  1. In a large heavy skillet set over medium-high heat, sauté the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour off most of the bacon fat (if there is a lot) and brown meat and onions.
  2. Add the stock and tomatoes, bacon, garlic cloves, thyme, italian seasoning and bay leaves. Salt and pepper to taste
  3. Stir to mix everything together and put the lid on your pan and cook for 25 minutes.
    Add pasta and simmer for another 20-25 minutes over low heat. Let it sit about 30 minutes with the heat off. Remove bay leaves before serving. Enjoy!
