Happy Halloween!: Hungarian Boolash

Hungarian Boolash


2 Tablespoons oil
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
2 Tablespoons smoky paprika
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1 large can (28 oz.) whole peeled plum tomatoes
3/4 cup water
1 can (16 oz.) kidney beans
1 package (12 oz.) ground lean beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (12 oz.) whole wheat macaroni
2 Tablespoons salt for the macaroni water

Prep Day: Add oil to a large skillet and heat. Add the diced onions and saute until translucent. Add meat and brown. Add the paprika and marjoram, cook a minute on low and mix well. Add the can of tomatoes and water and bring to a boil. Cover and turn down the heat to low and simmer 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to help break up the tomatoes. Add the kidney beans. Bring back to a boil. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Cook 15 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Cool and freeze mixture.

Serve Day: Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator overnight because it is a pretty solid mass and will take longer to defrost.

Bring a large pot to boil for the macaroni. Stir in 2 Tablespoons of salt to the water. Add the macaroni and cook according to directions. When finished, drain.

Put the goulash meat mix in a large skillet. Add the cooked macaroni. Heat through and serve.


I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
