Beef Goulash

  • Servings: 6

For a hearty and satisfying meal, fire up the slow cooker for this comforting goulash. Depending on how much heat you like, choose sweet or hot Hungarian paprika for flavoring. And for an easier— and faster—clean up, line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner (after the meal, when your slow cooker has cooled, remove the empty liner and throw it away).
