Homemade Goulash

My grandmother was a chef. So, she cooked delicious dishes for us. She was the one who introduced me to Goulash and told me that homemade Goulash has no comparison. It is one of the best things I have ever eaten.

To make Goulash, heat oil in a pan and cook bell peppers, onions, and beef in it. Then, add garlic and cook until fragrant. After that, add seasoning, broth, tomatoes, bay leaves, and macaroni noodles to it. Cook it until the pasta is tender. Garnish it with cheese and remove the bay leaves. Your Goulash is ready to serve.
