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!

Happy Crocking!

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.
