Mom's Goulash in the Microwave
  • 1 (8 ounce) package uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seed
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, crumble the ground beef into a 2 quart or larger casserole dish. Add the onion, celery and garlic. Cook in the microwave on High for 5 to 6 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink. Stir once during cooking. Drain off the grease.
  3. Stir the tomatoes, tomato sauce and sugar into the beef, and season with paprika, oregano, caraway seed, cayenne pepper and salt. Cover, and cook in the microwave on power level 8 for about 14 minutes, or until celery is tender and the flavors have blended.
  4. Remove from the microwave, and mix in the cooked macaroni. Cook for 2 to 3 more minutes, until heated through. Serve.
