American-Style Cheesy Beef Goulash and Macaroni
Everyone needs a few quick and easy family-pleasing meals in their arsenal for busy weeknights. That’s where this recipe comes in. This is not the kind of Hungarian goulash I grew up eating from my European immigrant dad. This American version, which dates back to the early 1900s, is more like a cross between a healthier Hamburger Helper and mac and cheese. The macaroni cooks right in the sauce so it’s super simple to make.
Press the sauté button on an electric pressure cooker. When hot, add the oil and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the beef, season with the paprika and salt, and brown the meat, using a wooden spoon to break it into small pieces as it cooks, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the pepper, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce, tomatoes, broth, and bay leaf. Stir in the macaroni.
Seal and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Quick release so the pasta stops cooking, then open when the pressure subsides. Discard the bay leaf. Top the dish with the cheddar, cover, and let sit until the cheese has melted. Garnish with parsley, if desired, and serve.
no pressure cooker? no problem!
To make this in a large pot or Dutch oven, cook, covered, over medium-low heat, until the pasta is cooked and the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
You can sub in ground turkey or chicken in place of the beef. You can also use mozzarella or Parmesan in place of cheddar, or omit altogether.
