Army Goulash (Gooey)

During World War II, this dish would have been made with one of three kinds of canned beef: one lightly seasoned from the US or Argentina called "Canned Horse"; the British version known as "Bully Beef" or the unpleasant tasting French version from Madagascar called "Monkey Meat."

  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans pork and beans
  • 6 1/2 ounces tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chili powder


  1. Brown ground beef with onions.
  2. Mix in pork and beans, chili powder to taste, salt and pepper to taste and tomato sauce. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
