Southern Goulash

What is Southern Goulash you ask? In my definition, Goulash is a Southern meal of bliss that includes a mixture of pasta noodles, beans, meat, sauce and sometimes extra ingredients that Southerners may add at their discretion with a side of sweet cornbread. My mama used to always make Goulash and I could never get enough of it, so I thought I would share our version of Southern Goulash with you. Get your taste buds ready! 

Southern Goulash has very few and very simple ingredients. Feel free to mix it up and add a few of your own ingredients. I normally add a can of corn (drained) and the lady that babysat me when I was itty bitty added celery! 

What I love about making Goulash is that it is simple! 

I do not have a special cornbread recipe – yet- but I do know that if you use a cornbread mix, make sure to add a little bit of extra sugar. In the South, us Southerners like our cornbread like we like our tea– nice and SWEET!

Serve up your Southern Goulash, hot with a slice of buttered cornbread or serve it cold with a slice of buttered cornbread; either way it tastes great and will have you wanting more.

    Thanks for the recipe! This will be on our dinner table this weekend! I would probably use finely chopped green peppers to replace the beans… and I have to find some good cornbread too! -Eileen Layno (a.k.a. Aiokona)

  19. I’m a northern gal and was curious about southern goulash. It seems that this recipe is very similar to Chili. What do you add to chili that makes it different than goulash? I love cornbread with chili or is it goulash.

  20. I LOVE goulash. I haven’t had it in forever but it’s so good. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  21. Nicole Williams says

    It looks great! My husband loves recipes like this one.

  22. I am allllll about the golash 🙂 Thank you for sharing Aimee 🙂

  23. A babysitter I had when I was itty bitty made goulash all the time and I didn’t like it; hers was super bland, but your version sounds delicious! I’ve never heard of serving it with cornbread, but I bet it would be great. All the cheese on top would be a hit in my house, too. 😉

  24. I have never had goulash before, but always wanted to try it.. Thanks for sharing the recipe..
