Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C.
  2. While oven heats, heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then onions to heated oil. Saute until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add paprika, Italian seasoning, salt and black pepper and saute for 1 minute more.
  3. Add beef and cook, breaking beef apart until browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Drain.
  4. Stir in garlic (portion for goulash), crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes (including liquid), water, and soy sauce. Bring to a simmer.
  5. While beef and sauce simmer, toss broccoli and garlic (portion for broccoli) with olive oil and salt. Spread out on a sheet pan. Roast, shaking pan halfway through cooking, until broccoli is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Return to goulash and stir in macaroni. Cover and transfer to oven. Cook until macaroni is tender, 22 to 25 minutes. Top with cheese and return goulash to oven, uncovered, until cheese is melted (you can also turn the broiler on for a minute or two to get the cheese topping golden and bubbly).
  7. Squeeze lemon juice over broccoli.
  8. Top goulash with green onions and sour cream. Serve with broccoli on the side. Enjoy!
