RECIPE BACKSTORY
n a desperate search for something to do with my ground beef, and a limited pantry (needed to make a trip to the store and didnt feel like it yet....I'll do it tomorrow, ya know?) I came across a Hungarian Goulash recipe in one of my Betty Crocker Cookbooks. I think there are as many variations of this recipe as there are for meatloaf. Anyway....I made a few slight changes to accommodate what I had available and here's what I came up with.
