Mmm, Goulash!

After watching an episode of Paula Deen, my mom and I were inspired to makeover her goulash.  It's hard to believe, but it's even more fun to eat than it is to say!


1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
3 cups water
1 (29-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
A dash of season salt
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 tablespoon pepper
1/4 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
2 cups dried elbow macaroni

In a Dutch oven, saute the ground beef and ground turkey over medium-high heat, until no pink remains. Break up meat while sauteing; drain off any grease. Add the onions to the pot and saute until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water, along with the tomato sauce, tomatoes, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and seasoned salt. Stir well. Place a lid on the pot and cook for 20 to 25 minutes.

Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and allow the mixture to sit about 20 minutes more before serving.
