Goose Slop (aka Goulash)

Isn't it funny how children make up non-words that eventually become real words within the family. Be it their own interpretation of a familiar word or a new word entirely, the non-word takes root and becomes a legitimate entry in the family dictionary. That is the basis of this blog recipe. The recipe for authentic goulash is not even close to the following recipe, but back home, any combination of beef, vegetables, and tomato sauce is referred to as "goulash." Add a three year old's attempt at the pronunciation, and you get "goose slop."

Goose Slop

1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, small diced
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups carrots, small diced
1 1/2 cups frozen green beans
1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
salt and pepper

In a large skillet on medium heat, brown ground beef, onion, garlic, and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomato soup and tomato sauce. Add carrots, beans and corn. Season again and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes
