I often recall my Mom making “goulash” a lot as a kid. From what I recall, it was basically anything that we had on hand, all thrown together in a pan and it always tasted good.
I decided to try a little “goulash” in the slow cooker since I am always on the lookout for quick meals on busy week nights. This one ended up being a hit with the kids and it warmed our bellies right up!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 3 medium white potatoes
- 1 small onion
- 3 medium sized carrots, peeled
- 2 celery sticks
- 1 cup of frozen corn
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 can on condensed tomato soup
- 2 tsp beef bouillon powder
- 1/2 cup of water
- Scramble fry the ground beef, breaking into small chunks.
- Meanwhile, slice all the vegetables up small (other than the corn obviously). If you have a mandolin, they are great to get a very thin sliced veggie.
- Drain the beef the best you can and transfer into 3-3.5 quart slow cooker.
- Add in all the veggies and pepper to the slow cooker, stir to mix them up.
- In a small bowl, stir the condensed soup, bouillon powder and water together.
- Add that to the slow cooker, mix everything together.
- Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.
Makes approximately 8 cups. Serves 4-6 people.
