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!
I love using my new Cuisinart Slow Cooker! (I gave away my old one!)
Not only is it a slow cooker, but it's a Multicooker!
That means it can be used to quickly brown or sauté the meat (up to 400 °F) before setting it to slow cook (at various temps) ... and there's a 'steam' option as well!
With a 24-hour timer and an automatic Keep Warm feature, I LOVE this! You'll love using this, just like I do!

Here's Anna ... and her goulash
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!
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.

German potato dumplings, aka Kartoffelklöße and Kartoffelknödel, invoke great memories of my Mutti's Sunday dinners. Using cooked potatoes, she created these scrumptious traditional dumplings!
