Beef and Macaroni Goulash

I love recipes that you can cook everything in one pot and the combination of flavors is just right.  I found this recipe in one of Paula Deen's cookbooks.  I omitted a couple of spices as salt and pepper are my favorite spices!  I also omitted ground turkey, too.  I don't cook ground turkey or lamb.  I still think you will find this to be a delicious pot of Goulash.  It makes a large amount, so if you don't want to be eating it for leftovers, you might want to have it when you're having company.

                                                    Beef and Macaroni Goulash

3 lbs. of ground beef
2 large yellow onions, chopped
2 - 15 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 - 15 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 cups elbow macaroni (uncooked)

In a large pot, cook ground beef over medium heat until done.  As the meat is cooking, press down on the meat with a fork to break up the meat into small pieces.  Drain off the grease.  Add the onions and cook until tender, about 5 min.  Add 3 cups of water along with the tomato sauce, tomatoes, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, soy sauce, seasoned salt, salt, and pepper.  Stir well.  Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook for 15 to 20 min. 

Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, place the lid back on the pot, and simmer for about 30 min.
Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to sit about 30 min. more before serving.
