Skillet Goulash {Favorite One Pot Meal}

7:37 PM
One pot meals are a cooks best friend. This Skillet Goulash is bursting with flavor on top of flavor.

Typically, goulash is cooked on top of the stove layering ingredients as you prepare it.

I started off with hamburger meat, adding some of our family favorite ingredients  as it cooked, onion, diced tomatoes, yellow corn, white hominy, beans, ending with the traditional elbow macaroni.

One of the most commonly used pots for one pot meals in my kitchen is my Dutch oven cast iron skillet.

Some wonderful soups, stews, roast, and don't let me forget my fried chicken have been prepared in this iconic pot.  Best yet, all the dishes that are prepared and served in the same pot, makes for less dish washing.

Can I hear an Amen?

Make some soon and you will enjoy!
