Anna's German Goulash 

Anna's German goulash is her mother's recipe that she's altered for use in the slow cooker. I LOVE using the slow cooker! And, I just love Anna Hanssen's recipe for it!

Thanks so much for sending it in so we can all enjoy it. 

Goulash, aka Gulasch, is such a traditional German food. I'm used to having it over boiled potatoes. To me, they are so perfect for soaking up all that delicious gravy. Anna's photo shows it being served over rice. Lecker!

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

Anna's German Goulash made in a slow cooker!

Here's Anna ... and her goulash

Anna Hanssen

My friend, Anna, writes, "It is originally my Mama's.

I made some minor changes to it like adding wine and beef stock to give it more flavor. I also had to adjust the fluid amount and cooking time to work with the slow cooker. "

You made the changes marvelously, Anna!

Oma says,

What a wonderful way how to make goulash, Anna.  I, too, love taking old traditional recipes and changing them to be able to use modern conveniences.

Another favorite way to serve this is to ladle it over noodles, especially Spätzle.

One of our readers, Melissa, mentions that she added peeled and chopped pre-cooked carrots and some chopped mushrooms.Those sound like wonderful additions to me.

In fact, I'm sure you can also think of some additional veggies to add. I'm thinking some chopped celery would be nice to add to this goulash.
