Hometown Goulash

Here on the plains, I’ve been working hard to get our second restaurant open. Taking over a place that has been shut down for over two years is a lot of work. We’re excited at the possibilities and it’s coming along with lots of elbow grease! Even so, after a long day of cleaning, this recipe hit home. When life pulls you in so many directions, having recipes like this one is a snap to put together after a long day. This goulash recipe is a favorite for quick and easy comfort food. It’s a family-style recipe that I love, so gather with the ones you love and try this one out.

Note- For a leaner recipe, you could use turkey. For a vegan meal-substitute, plant-based meat, and butter. Or lentils are also great with this too!

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:

1 lb. bag of elbow macaroni pasta

1 lb. of ground beef

1 12 oz. can tomato sauce

1 white or yellow onion

1/2 stick of butter unsalted

olive oil

spices- salt, pepper, chives, chili powder, paprika – all a half teaspoon. Then add more to your taste if needed

Preparation:

In a large pot fill half with water and some salt. Heat up to boiling and add the pasta. Stir every couple of minutes so it won’t stick. Cook for about 8- 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add in the butter and stir until melted.

Wash and peel the onion and chop it into a large dice size.

In a large skillet, heat on medium and add the ground beef. Drizzle about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil into the pan. Start to break up the beef with a wooden spoon. When the beef is about halfway cooked, add the chopped onion. Add all the spices and continue to stir and cook until the beef is cooked through.

Next, add the tomato sauce into the skillet, stir and cook for 5-10 minutes until it has thickened up a little and soaked in with the beef and onions. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. When this is ready pour it all in with the noodles and stir and you’re all done!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Comment below with your thoughts and what other recipes you would like to see on this blog! Until next time~J

A new journey to come

Quick update, our cafe has been closed for a remodeling project. It has been hard waiting, but the end result I know will be amazing. I’ve met a lot of people in the community during our downtime. My husband and I have been busy networking to see what we can do more with the community and help on a higher level.

The potential of what this remodel will bring is potentially life-changing. Being on a popular network, being filmed, and meeting others from there is all a dream come true. I can’t wait for it to air and see the impact it has on us and this town. I’m hoping for a more connected community overall. I hope it lifts everyone up and brings more people together.

I think it’s a wonderful start for change. The makeover is bringing new life here with so many possibilities that will touch many lives. It’s really amazing to be a part of it. Some days I don’t believe all the blessings that have come our way. It’s overwhelming and so humbling.

Recipes are coming soon…..still deciding what to post first. If you have requests on recipes write them in the comments!

Nosh Recap

The last two years have been a rollercoaster and whirlwind of progress. My now-husband and I moved to a small town, got married the next year, bought a cafe, and have been going non-stop ever since. I originally started this blog back in 2016 to organize my recipes and turn them into cookbooks which I have. Now 5 years later and with four cookbooks out on Amazon, along with meal planners, and journals I’m ready to make something new.

I’m back at it and ready to write even more. Working at our cafe has been such an amazing experience so far. We’re proud to be a part of the community and happy to have a special place of our own. This blog and creating new recipes are still a big part of me. I’ve missed it and am ready to jump back in. So stay tuned for new recipes and cookbooks to come from Nosh with Chef Julie!

This blog will still hold all the author interviews I have done in the past. Going forward I may bring them back and have new author interviews from time to time. I’m trying to find the balance between running soon-to-be two restaurants, this blog, being married, taking care of our home, and helping our community is a challenge, to say the least. I will update news and recipes when I can. Take care for now, until next time~J
