This Easy Goulash with Corn & Kidney Beans is so simple and delicious, it will become a go-to on your weekly menu. It satisfies even the pickiest tastes.
Hello! This is my first contributing post on Yellow Bliss Road, and I’m so excited to be sharing one of my recipes with you guys every month. The team Kristin has compiled is so talented, I’m honored to be a part of it, and I look forward to seeing what everyone else has to bring, as well.
I had never heard of goulash before a little over a year ago. My father-in-law, when asked what his favorite meal is, said it was goulash, so I started doing a little research on what that is. Turns out, it’s a very simple pasta recipe that has many variations. His favorite includes corn and kidney beans, so I came up with my own version around the one his mom use to make him when he was younger.
This Easy Goulash really reminds me of bolognese, which is one of my favorite things in the whole world. My daughter loves meatballs, so we call this “pasta with meatball sauce” when speaking to her about what we’re having for dinner.
Really, this dish is what you’d call an American Goulash. Hungarian Goulash is a whole different thing, although tasty in it’s own right. The Hungarian kind is more of a soup or stew and it uses other spices such as paprika.
In this Easy Goulash with Corn & Kidney Beans, I use only garlic, bay leaves and salt and pepper as seasonings. So, it’s incredibly simple to throw together on a busy weeknight when you are in need of an easy dinner idea. You could even use granulated garlic instead of fresh garlic, which would do away with some of the chopping and make it even easier. If you do that, I would use ½ tsp of granulated garlic in place of the fresh garlic. Either way, you’ll have a family favorite on your hands!
