Reviews for Slow-Cooked Hungarian Goulash
"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!"
"It was good, but bland."
"Made this just as the recipe said and it was delicious!"
"I really liked this. A good dish for the winter months. Creamy and mild in taste. Had with egg noodles."
"My family enjoyed this recipe very much. I like the simplicity of it"
"Out of 7 reviews, I only see 2 that give this recipe higher stars, and both of those reviews had to "tweak" the recipe. I won't be making this."
"It was simple but bland."
"I made this and it turned out very very runny. Before feeding it to my boyfriend I had him taste it. He couldn`t spit it out fast enough."
