Time to ditch plain old spaghetti! Instant Pot Goulash is going to be your new favorite thing!
My 4-year-old son is obsessed with spaghetti. I mean we literally have it for dinner almost 3 time a week. I pretty much hate it now, but we we have both come to a manual understanding that if I want dinner to go off with out a hitch, I serve spaghetti. That is until I made Instant Pot Goulash!
I was able to pass Goulash off as small spaghetti to my little one who ate the whole bowl! Goulash (AKA American Chop Suey) is something that honestly I grew up hating. I never liked red sauce as a kid. One day as an adult, something just clicked and now I LOVE it.
Recently I revisited the idea of making Goulash at my husbands request and boy am I glad I did. It tuned out amazing thanks to the Instant Pot! It was so convenient to be able to brown my meat and cook everything in (four minutes I might add!!) right in the same pot! I will totally be making this again!
This is the perfect busy weeknight meal to satisfy the whole family! And, cooked in only 4 minutes, its faster (and cheaper than take out)! Save your self some time and money by throwing this on your weekly menu plan!
Instant Pot Goulash
Turn the Instant Pot onto saute. When hot, add ground beef garlic, salt, pepper, and onion. Cook until meat is browned.
When meat is browned drain fat then add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, soy sauce, water, noodles, and bay leaves.
Set your Instant Pot to manual high pressure for 4 minutes. When timer is up preform a quick release of pressure. Take out bay leaves and give everything a good stir. Top with Parmesan Cheese and enjoy!
