It's 5 o'clock and you forgot to take something out for dinner. What should you make?
One of my quick go-to dinners is goulash. It's a hardy, filling dinner that can be on the table in less than 30 minutes.
I have many fond memories of eating goulash growing up. It was one of my dad's go-to meals whether we were at home or at the cabin. Depending on what vegetables you have in the fridge, it can be different every time.

1/4 cup onion, diced
