Finally, a recipe for Hungarian goulash that IS Hungarian goulash. I see so many recipes that as good as they may be are NOT really goulash, This IS. Very easily adapted to your liking by adding more or less of something. But if you follow this exactly you will have authentic Hungarian Goulash

This is a simple and average meal that has comfort food written all over it. I suggest using beef broth inplace of the water ~ adds more flavor, in my opinion.

This is a similar recipe to a favorite dish that my sister in law makes. I was recently given this recipe along with a pressure cooker. The main difference was that we use stew beef and instead of 10 hours in a crock pot (I love them too!) we used a pressure cooker at 15lbs for 30 minutes. The beef was really really tender and soooo good. There is a rule though, since i inherited this recipe. You have to drink a big ole' ugly glassfull of wine before you start. then you have to have another while you cook and spill a little in the mix. I love this over egg noodles. Note: to avoid the flour lumps that one reviewer was complaining about, you have to mix water and flour and then pour that into the goulash.

I used ground beef instead of what the recipe calls for (its what I had on hand) and added the egg noodles into the crock pot when it had about 30 minutes left and added about another 1/2 cup of water. It was fantastic! There were NO leftovers!

This was very good, but I felt it needed some more flavor. I added fresh minced garlic, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper and fresh mushrooms. And, next time I will use half the salt and will brown the meat prior to putting in the slow cooker. Will make again and again with the additions. Thank You Rhonda!

This is a great recipe for a cold day. I made a double batch of this for a big family dinner and everyone really loved it. Be sure to get stew beef - the cheaper the meat the better it tastes after it has been cooking for a long time. I usually serve this with egg noodles tossed with butter, garlic salt and fresh parsley and a side salad. Almost everyone went for seconds - good thing I made a double batch!

This made a simple, tasty meal... would definately make it again. I added a can of stewed tomatoes (pureed in blender first) and bumped up the paprika to 1-1/2 Tbsp since I only had the regular paprika. I served over buttered egg noodles, with mixed veggies and cottage cheese on the side, and both hubby and 6-year-old son ate it up. Next time I make this I will use the Hungarian paprika and add sour cream at the end of cooking like other reviews suggested. Thanks for the great slow cooker recipe!!

Delicious, Rich and Easy! Made this for dinner last night.. got home late from work and it had cooked for 11 hours on low. The meat was so tender it just melted. The sweet / tangy gravy was delicious over egg noodles. Added a dollop of sour cream for appearance but didn't need it for flavour. I will definitely make this recipe again. Loved it!
