"The recipe as written is bland. This was delicious after my fixes. I followed the recipe once. This time, I added two cloves of garlic then braised the meat and deglazed the pan with the tomatoes. That was intentional. When I reached for my paprika, I found I was out. I used chili powder instead. Happy accident. I will never use paprika in this again. Maybe that disqualifies it as goulash, but I don't care, it was way better this way."

"Rivalled my Slovenian mother in laws. I used moose instead of beef because we are a family of hunters. I added two beef bullion cubes and a cup of water to the slow cooker, along with two additional tbsp of flour and skipped the sour cream all together. Would use this recipe again!"

"We enjoyed this recipe and I'll probably make it again. That said, I added cream cheese instead of sour cream, as I had just gotten home from work and didn't take the time to check the recipe before adding the final touches. I let it simmer all day in the crockpot on low and came home to a delicious smelling dinner!

Next time I'll try it with sour cream, but the cream cheese version wasn't bad, just a bit rich!"

"I made this recipe and yes it has to have a few enhancements to meet my taste, but I feel taht it is worth the five stars I gave it.

As far as the burning on or sticking I used 1/2 cup beef broth or 3 cubes beef bouillo. You can also use a crockpot liner and throw it away when you are done."

"I was really curious about the reviews saying this recipe would be 'bland'. They were right. I did read the reviews while making the recipe. I added a 10.5 oz can of beef gravy and a can of undiluted vegetable beef soup. This helped a lot. I will make this recipe again, and after tweeking it, will give it at least 4 stars."
