I have made this crockpot goulash for potlucks, parties, and other events when I have to feed a lot of hungry people. It makes a huge batch, and everybody devours it right away. Serve it with some homemade breadsticks, dinner rolls, and a fresh garden salad to complete your meal.

Best Pasta To Use For Goulash
I find the best pasta for this goulash recipe is macaroni noodles. However, you could use other types of pasta that you like also. If you happen to have various kinds of pasta in your pantry, feel free to try something different to see what you like. Penne pasta would actually be pretty delicious and a very wonderful choice as well.

This slow cooker goulash can easily be customized to fit your needs. Don’t be afraid to play with the recipe to adjust it so that it fits your family’s desires.

What Is The Difference Between American Goulash and Hungarian Goulash?
There are several differences between American goulash and Hungarian goulash. Hungarian goulash typically uses a type of stew meat instead of ground beef. You’ll also find that Hungarian goulash has lots of onions and different flavored seasonings than traditional American goulash. American goulash has pasta noodles, while Hungarian goulash has more of a homemade dumpling instead. You may also have heard of American goulash being called American chop suey. While they both have goulash in their name, they’re definitely very different meals.

Black olives –  I love the taste of adding black olives to any kind of tomato-based pasta. This goulash recipe would be delicious with a few dice black olives. Add and 1/4 cup to enhance the flavor even more.
Mushrooms –  if you are a huge mushroom fan, but it only makes sense to add some of your favorite veggies.  You can go wild and added as many mushrooms as you see fit, but I usually try to stick to one-half cup or so.
Carrots –  sometimes adding a few dice carrots to recipes like this slow cooker goulash is a great idea. Not only does it add a natural sweetness to the dish, it also gives a little bit more vibrant color to the goulash recipe.

Variation To American Goulash
