This Make Ahead Hungarian Beef Stew from Mr Food is perfect to make in your slow cooker. It's so helpful to be able to cut up everything the night before and store it in the refrigerator. Then you just place it in the slow cooker in the morning and let it cook!
In a 3-1/2-quart (or larger) slow cooker, combine potatoes, onions, carrots, and lima beans; mix well. In a large bowl, combine meat, tomatoes with liquid, broth, garlic, paprika, and salt; place over vegetables in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low setting 8 to 10 hours, or until meat is cooked through and fork tender. Stir in potato flakes until well mixed and stew has thickened. Just before serving, stir in sour cream. Notes: Although this is a hearty meal by itself, serving it over warm buttered egg noodles creates a real Hungarian delight!
