So I've been reading about this dish called American Chop Suey / American Goulash.

Apparently it's elbow mac with tomato sauce, ground beef, onions, peppers, garlic, etc. There's no single recipe; I even saw one on Serious Eats that included Worcestershire sauce.

The funny thing is that I make elbow mac plus tomato sauce and ground beef all the time - it's quick to make, easy to eat, and reasonably nutritious. Seems I was making this "American Chop Suey" without realizing it.

Ever had it?
>>
Its just chili mac
>>
>>7058555

No, there's no chili in it.
>>
My nana always made it. It was more like vegetable soup without the soup. Beef, tomatoes, and any kind of canned vegetable she had in her pantry added to pasta.
>>
So macaroni bolognese?
>>
>>7058550
Yeah its p good. Everyone I know cooks it differently.

>>7058555
I fucking hate retards like you. Something having tomato-based sauce and ground beef does not make it fucking chili. Read a book.
>>
>>7058550
having grown up in a midwestern poor-ish family I am constantly greeted with dishes like these at the occasional family gathering

to my family it is just called goulash and basically consists of canned tomatoes (both diced and sauce), ground beef+elbow mac, paprika, onion
and maybe some "italian" seasoning or other basic seasoning

green jello salad is another fine recombinant cuisine
>>
It's a quick dinner. Decent but I wouldn't eat it if I had time or energy to cook something better.
>>
Here you go, OP. It's in literally every American grocery store. http://www.stouffers.com/our-dishes/Macaroni-and-Beef/108

>>7058693

Not the same thing.

Hey retard, go google chili mac and then see how much shit you feel like talking

>apparently my dad's mother made this all the time with elbow macaroni and canned tomatoes as the main part of it
>absolutely hates elbow macaroni in ANYTHING to this day cause of it
>>
My family makes spaghetti with elbows or spirals in place of the spaghetti noodles, and calls it goulash. Macaroni, ground beef, and based Prego. Super simple stuff.
>>
>>7058550
that looks tasty af
>>
>>7059780

I did. It's chili and macaroni. What is being discussed in this thread is not chili.

Why is it called "hamburger helper" when you don't use it to make hamburgers?
>>
Looks like that disgusting hamburger helper garbage.

Ground/minced beef is sometimes referred to as hamburger.

I live in Florida and I have never heard it be called the Night Jew or the Devil's Bug. We call it a fucking firefly. But thanks for the chuckle.

I used to eat that all the time, but got burned out on it. I have a box of Hamburger Helper Chili Mac in the pantry that I'll probably make sometime this month.

I recommend making the sauce, and portioning it out. When you want it for a meal, heat it on the stove and pour in some dry noodles. It will thicken the sauce, and you can have al dente noodles for every meal. I hate mushy, microwaved noodles.

That shit is dope.

In my family, it was just known as "beef and macaroni casserole". It was a dish that Mom would make when she got home late from work, or Friday night after a long night at sport events, etc, because it was super fast and easy. She would throw together browned ground beef, al dente macaroni, sauteed peppers and onions, a jar of her homemade tomato sauce (she always had a huge garden), olives, cheese, and usually zucchini or other squash, and bake it in a casserole dish with a crumb topping. Delicious.
I make occasionally when I need a good dose of nostalgia.

It's Beefaroni. Each family has there own handmedown recipe

Best to use simple ingredients, fresh beef, and quality tomatoes.

Will tell my wife to cook this, sounds tasty
>>
>>7058550
Always heard it called Goulash
>>
>>7061188

if you look at the wikipedia article, the stuff OP is talking about seems to be exclusively cooked in a pan not in the oven. it could be wrong though.

Canada here, I've heard firefly and lightning bug.

We just call it goulash.
My dad used to make it all the time growing up, but he'd usually use a can of Campbell's tomato soup, hamburger, elbow noodles, garlic, onions, mushrooms, and some various dried herbs.
Also, some melted cheese on top.
It's pretty common in Atlantic Canada because everyone is dirt poor, but I'm not sure about the other provinces.
>>
>>7067177
There is no way to exclusively cook something which literally varies wildly from one person to the next.
>>
Yeah it was a staple dish growing up. It's cheap and feeds a lot of people.
>>
>>7067539
yeah but you wouldn't cook a pizza in a skillet. pizzas are baked.
>>
Very good and easy to make, I like to go with cavatappi instead of elbow mac and add some jalapenos for a little heat.

Becuse people are idiots and call ground beef 'hamburger'.

>>7058550
It's a pretty common dish here in Uruguay. We call it "guiso de fideos" (noodle stew). Simple and tasty.

Because when you mince/grind beef in the usa it can be ground beef or hamburger. The difference being that hamburger has beef fat added.
In order for something to be minced/ground and referred to by the original cuts name it can't have added fat or addition cuts of meat out side of the original.
