FOODS FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION

There are many economical meals that families ate during the Great Depression using simple ingredients that are probably already in our pantries.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHIPPED BEEF (SOS) ON TOAST    –  FROM THE DEPRESSION ERA (1930s)

Butter, flour, milk and for meat shaved baked ham, ground beef, a pkg of Buddig beef,  or can of tuna.

The recipes are all pretty much the same but if you want…. add some extras such as mushrooms, peas,   chicken base,  Teriyaki or Worcestershire sauce and spices like, nutmeg, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, or cayenne pepper)

FONDUE FOR CHRISTMAS EVE

  • Creamy Chipped Beef Fondue  often served on Christmas Eve is a hearty appetizer that requires very little work. (Milk, cream cheese, dried beef,green onions, ground mustard and French bread

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GOULASH FROM THE DEPRESSION ERA- American goulash is also called by some ‘American chop suey’ or ‘Slumgullion’.

Goulash is one  that you can make a big pot and stretch to feed a LOT.

The above recipes all contain:

  • ground beef (or Italian sausage can be used, instead )
  • garlic
  • onion
  • tomatoes- such as condensed tomato soup, stewed or diced tomatoes, a rich zesty tomato sauce or paste, jarred pasta or marinara sauce, V8, or tomato juice.
  • elbow macaroni, small shells, bowties or egg noodles
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Italian seasoning
  • water or beef broth for extra flavor.
  • Cheddar, (Parmesan, or Mozzarella, instead of cheddar.)
  • salt or seasoned salt
  • black pepper

Optional:

  • Vegetables: Green pepper, shredded carrots, green beans, mushroom stems and pieces, celery, red bell peppers for a bit of sweetness in the zesty sauce or frozen mixed vegetables,
  • Spices– chili powder, paprika, cinnamon, oregano, bay leaves, parsley, red pepper flakes; from dried hot peppers
  • Stretch out the meal with extra pasta, refrigerated mashed potatoes or a can of your favorite kind of drained beans.
  • olive oil

To make the above more like Hungarian goulash, increase the amount of broth and add vegetables such as peas, spinach, and carrots. Add more tender vegetables toward the end so they don’t get mushy.

Hungarian goulash is different. A robust beef and onion soup seasoned with Hungarian paprika it is often made without vegetables. (Other recipes call for potatoes and/or carrots,onions,  green peppers, beef stew meat, salt, pepper, olive oil, beef broth, flour, paprika, tomato paste, caraway seeds, garlic, sugar, egg noodles,and sour cream.)
