Dutch's notes for this recipe:
In my never-ending quest for things that taste GOOD and are easy, I found this Hungarian Goulash Recipe. It's better than many I've tried.

Place the roast in your slow cooker and cover w/ the diced onion.
In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, one cup of water and the spices. Mix well and pour over the meat.
Cook on low 5~6hrs or until very tender. I was in a hurry and did it on high for 4 1/2hrs.
When it's done, make a slurry of the remaining 1/4C. water and 1/4C all purpose flour. Stir in and cook 10~15min on high or until sauce thickens. I served mine over wide egg noodles.
I've had some pretty good Goulashes over the years and this one rates right up there.

This sounds so good! Do you have a preference of the roast over the stew beef?
user Dutch Reyveld Dutchr - Jul 12, 2011
Tell ya the truth Mary...I had a small roast and a pack of stew meat...Cut/mixed 'em...I sure couldn't tell the difference...It's all so tender from the c/pot and flavorful from the sauce...NOT necessary to use any expensive meat! I meant to post a pic of it, have to get it out of my camera and I will...
