Crock-Pot Beef Goulash is an affordable, easy, delicious, meal that will bring back memories of your comfort food growing up.
Crock-Pot Beef Goulash
One of my family’s favorite meals growing up was beef goulash, so this week I decided to find a good way to make it in the Crock-Pot.
Goulash was a good staple meal for my mother to make because she didn’t have to have any fancy ingredients on hand, she could use hamburger which was affordable for us, and we absolutely loved it. This is not any sort of authentic Hungarian goulash but more of a standard “American” goulash…whatever that means!
Although I have changed up the recipe a bit, my children also loved having Crock-Pot Beef Goulash. It is one of those yummy comfort foods that we dive in for seconds and enjoy the leftovers.
This recipe is a very large recipe, making enough to easily serve 14 people. You will want to use a 6 quart or larger crock-pot. Or you can cut the recipe in half (use the handy serving size feature on the recipe below to help you out with that!)
For our family we like to have this for dinner and then enjoy the leftovers for another dinner or for lunches. But it is also one of those meals I make for when I have to feed a large amount of people….church pot lucks, a group of hungry pre-teens or teens…you get the ideas.
In this recipe the noodles are not cooked in the slow cooker, instead they are cooked on the stove-top. Certain recipes that call for pasta are OK in the slow cooker but you really have to babysit them otherwise the pasta goes mushy. So for this recipe I decided to go traditional and cook the noodles on the stove-top and add them in at the end.
It is a minor step but worth the extra time to me to ensure I don’t have pasta that has turned to mush.
