Slow Cooker Beef Goulash

The perfect winter warmer! An easy to make dish that takes less than 20 minutes to prepare. Leave it in the slow cooker while you’re at work and come back and enjoy a perfectly tender and rich texture. This slow cooker beef goulash can be served with rice, pasta or simply on its own. This is one of my favourite meals for the colder months.
