Easy to Prepare...Sure to Please

Dishes Men Like

"Easy to prepare, sure to please." Thus reads the words on the cover of this little cookbook. I've made two dishes from this book so far, and they've both been big hits.

The book was published in 1952. Times sure have changed, haven't they? I made the recipe below last week for seven of us in my extended family and everyone really enjoyed it!

Sampler Stitcher requested that I post this recipe, so here it is:

30 Minute Noodle Goulash

3/4 lb ground beef
1 Tbsp hot fat (I skipped this completely.)
2 small onions, minced
2 cups diced celery
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
Drained, hot cooked noodles (6 ozs dry- I used wide egg noodles.)
2 cups cooked canned tomatoes
3/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt (I also skipped this completely.)

Cook meat in fat until browned, add onion, celery, and worcestershire sauce. Gently mix in the noodles and the rest of the ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes or bake in buttered 2-quart casserole in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Enjoy!

I love these tasty casseroles as we ate them a lot when I was a kid. I hope you enjoy this recipe, too.

    Thanks so much for sharing. Goulash was a frequent meal for me growing up in the Midwest. I've tried many recipes over the years and could never quite find the perfect one. This one looks like a keeper! I can't wait to make it...soon. I love how you post recipes on your blog. I may have to share a few of my own :)

    mmmmmm....goulash! Like you, we had many, many of these dishes when I was growing up. I just love these vintage cookbooks. The goulash sounds divine!
