Crockpot Hungarian Beef Goulash – A Hungarian beef goulash recipe that is kicked up a notch with a cup of sour cream!

Goulash is a soup or stew of meat and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices. Originating from the medieval Kingdom of Hungary, goulash is also a popular meal in Central Europe, Scandinavia and Southern Europe – not to mention America. Really good beef dish and I serve it over butter noodles. Easy to fix and even easier to eat because it is so good. Great spices and great vegetables.
