This is an easy, versatile meal. The name goulash tells you that it is very flexible, adding what ever you have or substituting for what you don’t have. The base ingredients are ground meat, onion, tomato of some kind and the spices. Canned tomatoes can be replaced by an equal amount of fresh tomatoes. No tomato sauce, add extra tomatoes. Left over vegetables, throw them in. No rice, pasta or zoodles, serve over mashed potatoes or drain a bit and serve on a bun like a Sloppy Jo.
