Slow Cooker Goulash

  • Cooking Time:

    1 hour
  • Servings:



2 lbs. ground beef, lean
2 onions, yel­low, large, chopped
3 gar­lic cloves, chopped
3 c. water
2 — 15 oz. toma­to sauce, canned
2 — 14.5 oz. toma­toes, diced, canned
3 T. soy sauce
2 T. dried Ital­ian herb sea­son­ing
3 bay leaves
1 T. sea­soned salt, or to taste
2 c. uncooked elbow mac­a­roni
2–3 chopped green onions

Slow Cook­er Goulash is a com­fort food that I can’t help to asso­ciate with the Fall time of the year!

  1. Pre­heat slow cook­er to High.
  2. In a large Dutch oven, cook and stir the ground beef over medi­um-high heat, break­ing the meat up as it cooks, until the meat is no longer pink and has start­ed to brown, about 10 min­utes.
  3. Skim off excess fat, and stir in the onions and gar­lic. Con­tin­ue to cook and stir the meat mix­ture until the onions are translu­cent, about 10 more min­utes.
  4. Trans­fer the ground beef-onion mix­ture into the pre­heat­ed slow cook­er.
  5. Stir in water, toma­to sauce, diced toma­toes, soy sauce, Ital­ian sea­son­ing, bay leaves, sea­soned salt, and mac­a­roni until thor­ough­ly com­bined.
  6. Cov­er. Cook on High for 1 hour.

Option­al: Top with green onions for gar­nish!

I made this for din­ner tonight and it’s deli­cious i must say! Very warm, and cozy, absolute­ly great for the fall!


I made this for din­ner tonight. It was very good!!! 😀 My hus­band (who is very picky) and my son both liked it. Thanks so much!!! 😀


Could you use toma­to soup instead of toma­to sauce??

I use Toma­to Soup instead of toma­to sauce also. Works great!


Since it says cook for an hour, would it be pos­si­ble to let the sauce sim­mer all day and then toss the mac­a­roni in when you got home and cook? Or cook it sep­a­rate and toss in?


I have this in my crock­pot now except it is kind of a dif­fer­ent recipe. Every­thing I used is exact­ly like this one except no soy sauce and mine calls for 1/2 of cup ched­dar cheese thrown in 30 min­utes before you serve it. I am going to cook it all day on low and have my hus­band stir it a cou­ple of times and add a lit­tle beef broth if it needs it. I am keep­ing my fin­gers crossed. It smells heav­en­ly.
